April is Active Dog Month
The month of April is Active Dog Month. This month-long…
“We saw Peanut who was the littlest one of the 7 puppies and we fell in love with her instantly. We adopted her at four months old and she is now 1 year and 6 months old. Peanut is always by my side everywhere I go except she is very independent going out into yard by herself do her business, sit on her own deck with dog door entrance like a Queen looking at sky, birds, bug, or run around the yard and play ball. She loves to play with toys, balls and animal stuff.
We discovered that she is very unique and smart, and that she can easily learn a lot of tricks. We are deaf and we use American Sign Language with her. We sign “friend” in ASL and she gives us her paw to shake hands. She can also do high five, sit, go through weave poles, jump, and do a merry-go-round through my legs, walking in between my legs as I walk. I can go on and on about all her tricks. She completed her Petsmart courses and received American Kennel Club/Canine Good Citizen Certificate. And Peanut is currently in hearing dog training. She know we are deaf…so she does not bark at me and my husband – instead she hands us her paw or pulls on our arm to tell us what she wants. She also lets us know when someone is at the door. We love her so much; she is so sweet and playful, and she loves to pose for pictures and of course loves treats. Peanut loves to go shopping with us and sit in the cart or her carrier stroller. I can go on and on.
When it’s time for her breakfast and dinner…I hand her food and she stretches her paw & hugs me first and then she eats…awesome! She loves to sleep with us in bed for naps and every night. She always looks at me & then jumps at me to play and finally she reaches out her paw to my arm asking me to pet her, then I pet her softly and she gives out a sigh with love before we go to bed. We love her so much and very proud to have her in our life!”
