Growing Closer (Happy DOT)
Just got a reminder from a very special niece it is Thursday. Thank you. I did remember last night but had not thought about it yet today. So now back to what I was thinking about last night.
MaggieMae and I are bonding more each day. She comes to greet me at the door when I've been gone some place for a few hours. She has started to "bump" me with her nose to get my attention when I'm sitting at my computer. (My poodle Andy had done that a lot to get my attention.) If I sit on the recliner or the couch she is right on top of me, literally! The other night, she was not in the living room and when I went to look for her she was already on my bed! First time she did not wait for me!
Yesterday I was working on the "stay" command in the living room and she did pretty good. Of course, a little eager since I was using treats...smile. She does listen and mind pretty well anyway, but I thought it was time to start using a little more training and control. I am definitley thankful for this animal God has placed in my care. Next week first visit to the vet for checkup and heartworm test. Now where did I put her records????
New collar from Petsmart last week too. She looks "fetching" in it!
