Kona here...thank you Raine! I am trying the things on your list while it's overlooked as "puppy behavior". Little does my mommy and daddy know, but I'm just practicing.
I've got the "in and out" game down. I pretend squat though, or my mommy says some rather rude things. I'm starting the "bark at the wind" game too. I like the sound of my own voice. Although I scare my big brother sometimes. But he'll help me out when I need to get mom to play. We're also working out the issue of furniture ownership. And what does "get out of the kitchen" mean?
My mommy says that she knows I have a brain inside my head, even through the teenager months. Of course I do, but I'm not going to let anyone else know that!!!!
