Back-up... You're too close!

Updated on April 21, 2014

Now Cisco... back up... you're too close

Our beloved family member Cisco (loving Boxador) is so unique and loving that anyone who meets him wants to take him home as their own. They always comment, "Oh... what a cute puppy!" ... "How old is your puppy?" ... "My he's a beautiful dog!" and so many more. I am blessed to have Cisco as part of my immediate family, even if he is a dog.

Cisco has so many qualities it's really hard to choose one to write about, so I suppose I'll share with you the one quality everyone seems to agree upon is so endearing and not really seen in any other dog and their personality traits. Cisco at any given point seems to know exactly what kind of conversation we are having. I know dogs have keen awareness and know commands and follow direction when told too. But I haven't seen a dog react before an actual command was given. In his playtime with us he instinctively knows what is expected of him.

Click the video below and watch Cisco having fun in his playtime! #HappyDogDance #TalkingFreebies
