"The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs" - Charles de Gaulle

I’m ten weeks old white
Labrador, bundle of joy
waggling tail puppy
who loves nothing more than lots
of cuddles, fuss made out of
 
cheeky sides...full of
destructive habits, snoozing in
all day...puppy’s way.
But one morning decided
get serious about dog’s life
 
left behind unchewed
favourite shoes...to become
human’s truly best
friend. Took stressful walk. Scary
noise. Attractive smells. Trip to
 
School for Guiding Dogs.
Ready to be trained...make me
socialize...find ways
to start with the right paw...first...
learn basic obedience...lay
 
stay. How to sit...walk
interact with humans...other
dogs. Enjoy time...make new friends.
Amaze you to know...I am
now...best behave pup you’ve seen
 
eager to lend paw
hug...rest gentle head...sleep in
human’s lap...silent...
bark out thoughts...pleased to share...snug
sign...I’m yours, you are mine Friend!

I love puppies, and can't until they quit pooping on the floor. They need good training.
