It occurred to me that I have not posted about my dear Miss Perky in a while. I just downloaded some photos that I thought you might enjoy.
She is about 9 1/2 months old now and pretty obedient for the most part. She understands when she needs to be on “best behavior” – and when she can get away with some shenanigan! She is one smart pup.
Perky loves to go see the horses. When I start off in a direction opposite to the farm, she stops and looks at me with her head tilted the other way – letting me know she would prefer to go visit the farm. I think she thinks the horses are just big dogs. The horses are just as happy to see her, galloping over to greet her when they see her.
Perky knows to act like the future Guide Dog that she is, when she has her jacket on. All bets are off when the jacket comes off!
Of course, it’s not all work all the time! Perky does live a “dog’s life” – she has run of the house and lots of play time in the backyard where there are all sorts of interesting things to explore, such as squirrel and bunny trails.
What a pleasure to be raising such a wonderful pup!
