Warning: mushy post. But seriously, can I just brag on my puppy a minute? I love this dog, we're really starting to come to an understanding of each other. Not that I didn't adore her before, but in the past few weeks I feel like she's matured SO much and our bond has really strengthened. She's suddenly become a very affectionate little dog, which she never was before. She actually cuddles now! :yikes: And she's gained an attention span. :yikes: Now she is very good with her commands, including stay (which was a doozy to teach her). I can put her in a stay and walk all around the house and she won't move. She thinks its a great game. And she's just still so much trouble and so spunky and fun. She managed to chase off the goose today and was feeling mighty proud of herself lol. I <3 my puppy. She's such a neat dog to have around. The only problem we're having is that last week we were at the park and a lab ran up to us while my two were on a leash and flipped Mia completely over. She wasn't hurt but now she's afraid of big dogs running up to her. Really set back her socialization, but I guess we'll move on. Hopefully she stops being afraid of large dogs.
