Since it is a new year, my mommy decided that she was going to train me as her resolution this year. I already know how to sit, lay down and shake/high five. Although, I do have to admit, I will only obey if I will get a treat for my job well done. Mommy wants to teach me to stay, but I don’t like that word, and run away or attack every time I hear it. My mommy also wants to teach me to drop my toys, instead of just playing with them by myself; she also wants me to learn to leave things alone… Like the cats. It’s not that I don’t like cats, it’s that they are small and run away. Well duh, I’m a dog, if something runs, I want chase, but mommy and grandma don’t like it when I try to play with them. The biggest thing that mommy wants me to learn, is how to meet and greet her friends and other dogs. I like to bark if someone knocks on the door, or if people come into my house, but that’s mainly because mommy keeps me locked up, and I don’t get a chance to scope them out. I did however get to meet another dog this week, my mommy and I thought it was going great… That is until he snapped at me, then I got scared and started barking at him. Mommy says we need to work on my social skills, and wants to take me to my uncle Kevin’s house to practice, but apparently my uncle will cry if I end up barking at him.
So, that is where I am at today. Looks like I have a lot of hard work in front of me. I will continue to tell you all about it. Maybe I will be the best dog ever soon, and we can quit and go back to her leaving me alone. Jk, I love my mommy.
