Primping and preening

I had one final test...I went to the vet's office with Bettis. There were all kinds of little dogs and lots of people telling me how handsome I am! Of course I know this, but I played humble and just laid my head on their shoulder and allowed them all to pet me. I did not growl or bark. Maybe I let out a whine or two to remind people I was there and needed petted, but nothing more than that. Even the vet said I was a fine specimen. He weighed me and I was almost 89 lbs!! I guess the games have still not stopped because my foster mom got out a tool and kept touching my toes with it. It kind of tickled, so I would pull my toes back. She did tell me to quit trying to sniff this tool when it was running. She said it would make my toenails pretty. I wasn't too sure about it, but when I realized it just made my toes tickled, I let her trim my nails. They feel much better now! I do have to say that all of these tests and primping and preening have me a little bit sleepy. I'm going to take a nap so I can bounce a bit more in the morning! Rumor has it I am going to meet some new friends on Saturday!!

Dear Red Hawk,

we hope that you will find your forever family soon. With the right training and time, you will become more like a pet.

Being a house dog can be challenging....
