Hello world- I’m Annie! I’ve just moved in with my puppy raisers, Molly, Ben, and their dog Tucker. I’d heard all about them from my fellow Hero Dog, Abe, because he grew up with them, too. So far, he was right- it’s lots of fun at their place! Here’s what I’ve done so far:
1. Mess with Tucker- Oh boy, is that a blast! He’s never had a little girl around, so he’s not sure what to do with me most of the time. I act all sweet and innocent so he’ll let me curl up next to him on the dog bed, and then WHAM! I steal his Nylabone. He just kinda looks at me, then goes and gets another one. My other favorite move is the sneak attack. Tucker sleeps a lot, and for some reason I don’t, so I love to wake him up with a nice body slam when he’s out cold. He doesn’t love that, but so far he’s letting me get away with it. Molly and Ben sure think it’s funny.
2. Go to school- Molly teaches 3rd grade at an elementary school, and I get to tag along with her every day. Abe told me this was his favorite thing, and I can see why! I get so much attention there, especially from the kids! All the pats and hugs and ear scratches have been amazing. The students have been helping me practice my manners. They also taught me how to go down the big, slippery, scary staircase in the school by standing on the steps with treats for me as I made it down to them. Now that I know how, I zoom up and down with no trouble!
I’ll be sure to keep you posted on my adventures here, but for now I’ve gotta run. Tucker’s asleep again, and I’m in the mood for a nice belly flop…
