Hi guys! I’m having a great time here at college. I love playing with all my friends and seeing all the kennel helpers! I like giving everyone kisses and getting lots of pets. Everyone tells me I am a very sweet girl. If someone I really really like comes to see me my whole back end wiggles! Recently I have had two people I love a whole lot come see me! My puppy raisers Justin and Torrey have stopped by to see me a few times; I love to see them so much that I give them lots of kisses and they give me lots of belly rubs! I even went home with them for a visit one time – I like that a lot!
I have been working a lot when I am not cuddling with people. I have been learning to alert a person to specific cues. When someone rubs their hands together I give them my version of a hug; I wrap one paw around their leg and plant my nose up against them. This is my favorite new thing to do so sometimes I try it even if you don’t rub your hands together; it always seems to make my trainers smile but I only get a treat if I do it when the hand rubbing cue is given.
Here, these photos show you what my new skill looks like!
