Hi Everyone! It’s me, Nikita! Guess what? I’m 4 months old as of yesterday and getting bigger & smarter every day! I spent the day yesterday learning some new tricks and boy oh boy can I learn fast! My newest trick I learned is really cool, when either Mommy or Daddy snap their fingers together, I jump straight up in the air & of course, get a treat for doing so! They don’t even have to say anything either, just snap their fingers and I jump! How cool is that and I learned this in 10 minutes. I also learned how to “beg”, but I am still in the process of perfecting this one. I am a little shaky on sitting on my hind legs, but with a little help, I will get this one.
Daddy also taught me another trick – whenever he opens this little jar of my
puppy treats, I run right into my cage and wait for him to give me the treat. I only do this trick for “this jar only”. When I see Mommy or Daddy getting me a treat from any other jar, I just sit and wait to see what they are going to ask me to do, and I don’t run into my cage. Daddy keeps saying that I am a smart puppy, I think so too!
I also know how to “sit”, “shake”, and “down” all on command, and can even do these without treats too, but treats are much appreciated. I am working on the “stay” thing, but I get so excited about getting a treat, that sometimes I just run over to get my treat and forget to “stay”. LOL
I’ve been at my new home now with Mommy & Daddy for two months now, and I can’t believe how time flies. I feel like I have been here all along, and part of the family. I am so loved and cared for and since Thanksgiving is coming up next week, I want to say how thankful I am that I was adopted into such a great home, have loving parents, good food to eat (thanks Daddy for filling my belly everyday), and lots of toys to play with. I am also thankful for the Cleveland APL for taking such good care of me before I was adopted, without your assistance, I may not have made it to where I am today. Being able to wake up every day in such a good home makes this puppy very thankful.
Hugs & wet puppy kisses to you,
