My former owners said I was too energetic but my new human spends lots of time with me. She takes me out to play fetch with a stick or Frisbee or tennis balls when I get her to understand my “Let’s play” look. Sometimes I can get her to retrieve these when I find something else to chase – like a squirrel inside our fence. I haven’t had any luck getting her to retrieve the balls I drop down the basement stairs though.  She eventually rounds them all up and puts them in my toy basket and I get to take them all out again. Another fun indoor activity is playing with my Buster Cube. The Humane Society caregiver suggested it for me because she said I was very smart. Besides chasing the kitties who live here I also go for long hikes in the park which actually tires me out. Isn’t that great? 

We started obedience class right after I moved in here. I learned that I shouldn’t jump up on people to greet them. After class we would go to the pet store to practice. I would show everyone how good my manners are and you know what that means – hugs and treats. Who knew?

So be sure to remind everyone that some of us “problem” dogs just need to know what you want us to do!

Have to go now. We have a new kitty who needs to learn how things go around here.
