[Paris jumping up on me.]
[Paris with her feet wrapped around my waist and me giving her a big hug around the neck.]
[Paris jumping on me some more. She almost knocked me over.]
[Paris looking up at the camera, it looks like she is winking (her right eye is closed) and her tongue is slightly out.]
[It looks like Paris is barking but she was taking a treat from the puppy truck driver after showing off her new trick. (video below)]
After Paris calmed down a bit the puppy truck driver was able to talk to me about Paris. She was the only puppy on the truck on the way out so she got to sit up front with the drivers the whole time. They loved her and said she was really well behaved, that's my girl! They also said that the kennel tech that worked with Paris loved her and wanted to adopt her if I didn't take her. She wrote a sweet note on the back of Paris' info sheet saying how much she loved Paris. After that I got a few more pictures of Paris before we headed home.
[Me and Paris kneeling in front of the training van.]
[Paris jumping up on me some more.]
[Crazy Paris is standing on her back legs jumping toward me with her mouth slightly open.]
[I like this one, Paris has all four feet in the air and she is crashing into me, you can tell her tail is going a mile a minute.]
[Paris sitting nicely and licking her lips.]I am also starting her on "roll over" she is picking it up really fast. This video is after about 10 minutes of working on the command. I love it and so does she! She does much better than Prudy ever did. :D
[A close up of Paris' sweet face.]
[I picked up Paris and held her on her back, here is a close up of her face.]
[We went up with Mitch and Meade and his parents so Paris got the back of the SUV all to herself. Here she is standing in the back before we took off.]
After we got home I let her meet Picassa. They get along really well and Paris is really good with her. [Here they are doing the circle sniffing.]
Then it was time to switch her collar. GDB sent her home with a pink collar and pink is SO not her color. I love how the new green with white polka dots collar looks on her.
[A profile of Paris wearing her new green polka dotted martingale collar, she also has a blue GDB tag silencer.]Paris showing off the trick that the kennel tech taught her. It's "head down" she lays down and you tell her "head down" and she does it. It's really cute and I am hoping to convert it into a sitting command so she'll put her head in someones lap. I think it'll come in handy while doing therapy work. :D
Then I got out Paris' new toys. She is a big fan of her frog and her ball. I am glad she likes them.
[Paris with the frog sticking out of her mouth.]
[Paris with her Goose between her legs. She is not really sure what to make of it, but she's got a huge smile on her face.]
[Paris really likes the big tennis ball, she likes to make it squeak. Here it's in her mouth and she is swinging her head to make it squeak. It took a few tries to get her to squeak it, she would make it squeak once and then drop it but she got the hang of it.]
Here are a bunch of videos of Paris' return. I've already started working a few tricks with her and she is picking them up really fast. What a smartie!!
Here she is with her Frog toy she is looking around while she makes it squeak.
She is also learning crawl and she loves that one but it's hard to get a video so that one will come later. I am so excited about our next years together. I couldn't be happier to have The Paris back, she is a stellar dog and just what I need right now. Hopefully she can make some appearances at puppy class when we don't go on outing. She would really like that. I am going to stop rambling now and go play with my girl some more. Happy weekend everyone!
