    It sounds like it's time to start training Lucky. Start teaching him to sit before you pet him or play with him, and he's ready to start learning some fun tricks, too; things like fetching and hide and seek.

    But you can't ever love a dog too much or show it too much affection. They thrive on affection, just like children. But, just like children, they need loving discipline so that they know how to behave properly. Start that now, with simple things like sit and lie down and you'll have a firm foundation to work from later when you really need it.

    It's impossible to over love a dog.
