River got to go visit a Great Dane for lots of play time with an older and BIGGER dog while having sleepovers for a couple of weeks this month.  While with that family, River learned to “shake a paw”.  Yay!  (Thanks, Donna!)

Maybe River was just too tired from having had the Great Dane to play with!

Anyway, as you can see in the photo, River was happy to be in a Down close to a student who was sitting on the floor nearby.  (Thanks to Jennifer for the photo)

And the puppy sitter’s report card said: “Passed with TOP MARKS in calm behaviour and sweetness. What a good puppy!”
