I got settled in with my new raiser in Calgary, and I am just the happiest pup. My tail wags so much that I’ve managed to knock a few things off the coffee table! I’m learning all kinds of things and am really proud of my fantastic recall and my steady loose leash walking. Everywhere I go, people comment on how well-behaved I am, and of course, they mention how big my paws are. Apparently, I have a lot more growing to do. I am very, very food motivated and sometimes I won’t do what my raiser wants because I know she doesn’t have kibble to give me. But when she has kibble, I’ll do anything she wants. As you can see from the pictures, I’m working on chilling when my raiser is at appointments, and I’m also learning that my raiser’s food is not my food.
