Going for walks (Mom walks, I RUN!!!), having my upper front legs scratched, going for car rides.
NOT being the center of attention when that OTHER dog does something cuter.
Empty milk jugs, bubble wrap, bouncy balls, rubber toys, old socks for tug-a-war, my sister Marble.
Meat, vegies (even broccoli!), rawhide treats, fat drippings from the pan (which I don't get much anymore) ... and whatever my people let me lick off the serving spoon (after they're done with it, of course).
Anywhere Mom goes, but especially through the woods where I can run after deer ... and boogie men, and bigfoot, and lions and tigers and bears, oh my!
Giving paw, lying down, speaking, rolling over, playing dead, playing "grab-your-hat-from-your-head-and-run-away-with-it," and putting my chin between my paws and giving my people those big brown eyes to get my way!
The kids were begging for another dog... Papa kept saying said NO! Then one day he weakened and brought home the cutest little Shepherd-mix pup for Valentine's Day -- me! (Boy, some dads will do anything to score points with the rugrats!)
My canine dad is a mystery, but there's some long hair in his pedigree somewhere, for sure, and maybe floppy ears (one of mine never did stand up). My mom was a purebred German Shepherd, but she was chained to her doghouse outside during her heat (bad idea) -- and I think she was very "popular!" My human mom wonders if he was a border collie, because I'm so wiry and "high energy!!!" Zoom, zoom, zoom!
Some people think I look a little comical with my tufts of long hair around my head, and one-ear-up and one-ear-down! But they also say I'm a real charmer! As you can see, I've finally gotten past that gangly, awkward stage and am actually quite good looking, in a funny sort of way! Hey, stop laughing at me -- I'm CUTE!!!
I am a little goofy now and then ... like the way I sometimes start daydreaming when I'm licking my peoples' hands -- and stop mid-lick with my tongue stuck to them and just stay that way! But my people are easily amused and get a good laugh out of it, so I'll even do it on purpose sometimes just to amuse them.
I used to always have to stay locked in my kennel when the people had to leave me home, because I chewed so many things (even the arm of their good couch -- that was a bad day for me!!!). But I got over the chewing thing, and now I'm a GOOD BOY!
In the last couple years, I've lost my two companions... first Holly one year, then Monte the next. I was pretty depressed, being the ony doggie, so Mom & Dad decided it was time to visit the shelter with me again to pick out a new companion. Check out my new sister, Marble. I still miss Monte and Holly sometimes, but Marble's really playful and has cheered me up again. She makes my human family laugh again, too, so I guess I'll keep her!
Gotta Love Me!
