My Puppy Progress Report from Diane at Diane’s Canine School of Charm:

The man did much better today. He has such a zest for life that he thought he didn’t have to do anything I asked him except sit and that was momentary. Today he sat longer, walked on the leash much better and learned that biting the hand that gives him the treats is a no no. Down was better also. I love his attitude, he does want to please and he is smart, a thinking lab. Tomorrow we see if he comes when called with and without distractions. Take care. Diane

Today I headed off to boarding school at Diane’s Canine School of Charm. So much to learn about what my humans want from me but I am an eager student. I have also made fast friends with a golden and a cute little Weimereiner. I’ll keep you posted!

This photo is Diane meeting me for the first time. She also told mom that it was the last time she would let me jump up on her. What? No jumping? Hmmmmm….that’s a new one!

Thanks to my Aunt Christie who babysits me so that I can play with my brother, Cooper. She and my mom work together to do great things and I think she is the BOMBDIGGITY! I love and appreciate my furry and human family! Woof!

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt. – Charles M. Schulz

Chocolate is my favorite COLOR but humans seem to think it is delicious too! It was such a fun night greeting all of the trick or treaters and getting loved on by tons of kids. I may not have had chocolate, but I had my share of treats and played several tricks on my much smaller shihtzu brothers. Happy HOWLLLLLLLLOWEEN!

I am so happy today. Full of energy and spunk. Feeling much more like my normal puppy self. So I’m NOT perfect right now–who cares? I am smiling, playing, loving on my family and ready for the world! I EVEN jumped into the front seat of mom’s car today without any help. Woof!

Mom and Pop babysat me and Brylee tonight. We both napped. Most of the time, she makes more noise that I do. I go outside to do my business–she goes right in her pants–ewwww! However, I think she is pretty great and look forward to growing up together as pals.
