    favorite thing about your dog.

    Mine is snuggling them in bed at night. We all get nice and cozy, pile in bed and watch movies and snuggle. They even look so forward to that. When I say, "Night Night" time they all get perked up and jump into bed. It's the best feeling. I just love them so much, there my whole world.

    Mine would be playing with Teagan. She is a freaking hilarious. And she gets so excited and happy when we start playing she is just too funny and too cute for her own good. I love my dog!

    Mushroom: the way he gently noms his stuffies. It makes me melt every time. He's a big-headed brute, but he's so gentle with all of his bearbears.

    Luce: when I wake up in the morning and she's curled up against my back with her chin on my neck. She is my heart.

    Steve: he is so much fun to train. He's smart and he's funny and he's always always willing to play whatever game I ask of him.

    Dance: What's not to love about Dance? Really, if it wasn't for her aversion to strangers, she'd be about as perfect as they come. But if I had to choose a favourite it would be her ever so happy, exuberant attitude. She's just so much fun, and I can't help but smile and laugh when I'm around her.

    Ripley: Haha, at this point, I don't know. He's just such a jerk lately in his new stage. But I do like how he tries to please me, and I also like how much fun he has in everything he does. He's just a big, goofy puppy at heart still.

    Keira: Her super sweet, sucky personality. She's the ultimate velcro dog.

    Just the essence of Buster. The way he only lets himself really relax just around me.

    The way she is such a wiggly worm wanting cuddles in the morning. Such a sweetie pie. I know she just wants to be fed lol.

    The way she forgives me my inadequacies as an owner and a trainer, she has been and continues to be an incredible teacher.

    Her bizarre ability to look like other animals sometimes... wolf, squirrel, camel, deer, lion. (Ok, very vaguely. Only I admit to noticing!).

    Ares: Training him used to be my favorite thing about him. He was always such an eager worker and intelligent and determined to get it right. It was his favorite thing too. Now that he's retired, I have had to find other favorite things - like when I do things he's not happy about (grooming, taking away something that he shouldn't have, sitting a little too close while he has a hoof) and he trusts me completely - which took years to build. I also love watching him get zoomies and I love how he gets cuter every day. He's my heart dog, and as obnoxious as he can be, there's almost nothing about him that I don't love.

    Morgan: My favorite thing about her is snuggling. She'll just lie there forever and her being so relaxed takes away all my stress. A very close second is how wonderful she is with the other dogs and her abilities to teach them all manners without any physical aggression.

    Tyr: I love his stealth watch dog mode. He will plant himself between me and a perceived threat and not make a sounds while he watches.

    Nyx: I'm not sure. She's by far the most challenging dog I've ever owned and at times I seriously consider rehoming her. She's very difficult to live with, difficult to train, and basically a PITA. She's high drive, high energy, reactive, lacks self control and is very demanding. Yet somehow she's becoming a second heart dog. I'd say I most love watching her trust and her social skills improve daily.

    T-Bone's goofyness. She always blossoms up so much when I start laughing. She is such a clown at heart and makes me laugh when I really need it. I also love the way she snuggles with me, it's so soothing.

    Summer- God everything... She is my heart. I love how in tune she is with people and how well she reads people. I love her calm demeanor and grace. I love when she's sleepy she'll shove her head into me and grunt.

    Mia- Lol, oh man... I love how funny she is, how busy. I love her naughty streak and how freaking smart she is. She learns from everything all the time. But most of all I love the quiet times. They're few and far between but she reserves her affection and snuggles for me and only me. When she's really sleepy I pick her up and she just melts into me and goes to sleep.

    That is a good way to put it, my animals are my heart too. Mia sounds like Rocky and Jack with the naughty streak.

    I also love when they greet you when you come home. You just feel so loved. Mine start jumping like crazy on me so excited. Even if I've just been gone 10 minutes. They just get so happy to see us.

    Lilly. She is my everything. She is my world. She is as stubborn as an ox and hard headed. She is very definate in what she wants and is extreemly moody. Therefore, if Lilly loves you, you know it. I love how she will head butt me while grunting and wagging her tail. I love her huge grin and how she bounces almost as high as your head when she is happy. I love how intelligent she is and how she cons Travis and gets him in trouble. I love her smell too. She always smells like a puppy.

    Travis. Ah, my little boy. He is a total sweetie pie. He is a mommys boy and a goof. He has the sweetest temprement and just wants to play fool around with other dogs. He has the sweetest sense of humour and is just a little melted cupcake at times. He is very sensitive and needs a gentle hand, but at the same time loves life. I love how much he loves us.

    Daisy: Dais is MY heart dog <3 she's the biggest cuddler, and she loves to learn and work and succeed. She's taken me places/gotten me interested in training to a point I wasn't sure I'd ever want to get into. She has the biggest heart in the littlest basset body I've ever seen.

    Liz: Oh Liz. Liz just wants to be loved. She was a kenneled show dog prior to us purchasing her at 4 years of age, and watching her evolve from a personality-less nimrod who didn't know how to walk up stairs to the WONDERFUL, loving, obedient dog she is now has been incredible. Looking back on our journey together thus far makes me melt.

    Eerie: Eer embodies every aspect of a Plott, in my opinion. She is not aggressive, but it quietly protective of me. She will go to other people and accept pats, but reserves her true, full body contact love for her "inner circle". She has attitude to spare and never stops thinking. She is also stunning.

    Autumn: Her easygoing, adaptable nature. My first ever impulse buy of a puppy (my first puppy since my childhood dog, period!) and she has NEVER made me regret it! I don't think I could ever own another puppy, because it's not physically possible to get another one like her. I was a full-time student and working as a vet tech when we brought her home - she raised herself a lot, and I couldn't ask for a more perfectly behaved dog (she's 2.5 now). She is outgoing and confidant, friendly, listens well, and can go anywhere.

    Rage: Still getting to know her, but what comes to mind currently is the insatiable zest for life ;) She's only about a month younger than Autumn, and has SO much puppy left! Every day is a party for her.

    That is EXACTLY like Jack, I could not have said it better then myself. That is what Jack makes Jack, stubborn and knows EXACTLY what she is doing when we say no. To her No means Yes.

    Murphy - I love how laid back he is and how he loves me best. Lol. And I love his after bath zoomies. And how the fur on his ears gets messed up and he looks like an Einstein dog. I am so so glad that I picked him from the shelter even though he couldn't have cared less about me when we met.

    Mu - I love how cuddly she is sometimes. And, strange as it is, I love how much of a PITA she is other times. I love when she just wakes up and she leans on my legs and just wants to be loved.

    Fozzie is a rock... he is reliable in any situation, with anyone & anything. I love how I can completely trust him and how he tries so hard to never let me down. Fozzie is one of those dogs with a truly, purely kind soul. I love how he grunts at me when he's really excited. I love how he will fall asleep in any position that you put him in.

    I love how much Gonzo loves me. He will never love another person even a fraction as much as me, and I'm sure no one will ever love me like Gonzo does, and it touches my heart. :) I love that I know what he's thinking all the time and he knows what I'm thinking. I love all of the things he will do with me, but never ever with anyone else (like cuddle)... in a way, it's sad and selfish of me, but he is the ultimate one-person dog and I'm glad that I'm his person.

    Armani: I love to see him run when he gets a chance to be off leash... he can really move... it is so fun to just watch him do laps around the dog park. As his hair blows in the wind you can just tell he is having the best time.

    Chloe: I love waking up to find her curled up on my pillow... she finds a way to get there in the middle of the night without me knowing and I will wake up and just see her looking back at me... one of the few times she is QUIET!
