Here is an excerpt: Star is at an age where he's just a little busy for all the hugs and kisses. Don't get me wrong, he enjoys it and will relax completely with me, but he would just as soon be outside with the big dogs. They are much more interesting just now. When it's his turn to come in for the night, I usually get down on the floor and give him a huge snuggle after I first let him out of the crate in the morning. He's torn between running for the back door and the big dogs and throwing himself down to soak it all up. As he's matured, he is choosing the snuggle over the big dogs a bit more, but becomes impatient with me after a few minutes and heads for the door. Since he's learned so much in the last 3 months, I have lots of reasons to praise him up, so I let him go and satisfy my need to show him affection after he's done something particularly brilliant, which happens fairly often. The big dogs would sit in my lap all day if I let them.
For every subscription received during the month of February, I made a donation to the ASPCA, and the fund raiser was a huge success. I have made the decision to continue this effort from now on. From every subscription to The Real Time Canine that I receive, a portion of the fee will go to the ASPCA. In this way, subscribers can help themselves raise better dogs and together we can benefit all animals. From a 1 year subscription, $3 will go to the ASPCA, $2 for 6 months and $1 for 3 months, with my sincere appreciation and thanks.
