Oh my goodness is he CUTE! Hard to believe anyone could have an issue with such a sweet looking puppy. But if any of the resident cats are male -- watch out. Alpha animals can be decidedly territorial... but after the firewords die down, I'm sure everyone will welcome him with open paws. Congrats on your new grandbaby!
My daughter tells me that the white ones are somewhat unusual. This little critter cost her $1,000.00 - I don't know what she paid for his aunt.
They are nice dogs. The aunt has been through obedience training - I forget exactly what they call it but it has something to do with using her in nursing homes - I forget. She doesn't actually do whatever it was they had her trained for, so I'm a bit confused as to why they went through all that trouble, but I know she passed all her tests
I'm much more of a cat person, and my poor wife is wildly allergic to almost everything, so we can only see pictures. But yes, the little guy is cute.
Thanks for the early morning smile - what an adorable puppy!
I think the term for a dog that visits nursing homes is a "therapy dog," though I could be wrong. Our speech therapist has a trained dog that she (occasionally) brings to Nolan's therapy sessions. It is really amazing how much a dog can prompt a child to speak - Nolan will tell Shakespeare to "sit" or "say mama" (the dog can bark out a few words).
Most therapeutic dogs will have first passed the Canine Good Citizen test. That's a basic certification that is a marvelous goal for any dog that is a house pet.
By the way, neither of my two dogs could pass the Canine Good Citizen test today. Although the poodle could potentially do it, with a little more work. As you can see from my avatar, she is a pushy lap dog.
