Max (a.k.a. “Peanut”) is a 7-month-old, male Chinese Crested puppy with the spirit of a lion and the heart of an angel. Max belongs to my niece and nephew-in-law. He is best friends with our cat Violet, and he is proving to be a true Therapy dog to our dog Glimmer, who is insecure, fearful, and nervous around other dogs as a result of previous, negative experiences. He’s only a puppy, but when Glimmer invites him to play, he seems to know how much excitement she can handle, and he responds accordingly. Self-restraint in any dog is awesome; for a naturally high-strung puppy to exhibit that kind of restraint, however, that is extraordinary.
Max will be with us for the next few days. During his stay, my niece and nephew-in-law have asked me to work with him on his basics, and, if possible, do some kennel training with him. He is an awesome little dog in his own right – as mentioned above – but he has acute separation anxiety issues that need to be addressed, especially with kenneling. I’m looking forward to spending the next few days working with him.
Pictures and videos will be shared when possible.
Have a wonderful day and a fantastic weekend ahead – and remember to stay calm and lead on… 🙂
