Tell us about yourself: So, we inherited a very young Dutch Shepard (possibly a mix) rather unexpectedly. He is probably not even a year old yet. Our Boston is 13 and thinks his klutzy self will bowl her right over. She has some eyesight problems and gets scared when he suddenly runs right up wanting to sniff and play like he had with a play mate who was both younger and bigger.
He is clearly a real sweetheart, but the introduction between them is definitely challenging..
We intend to get him into puppy classes ASAP, but meanwhile we are working on potty training and walking on a leash.
That said, the walk with both dogs this afternoon went pretty well once we could get them to focus on walking instead of focusing on each other.
I'm putting it in the win column.
Meanwhile, suggestions to hold us over until puppy class would be very welcome...
Thanks!

Figured it might be an honorary mention because he wasn't a Dutchy..
But:
My old Plotthound Joey used to sleep under the kids' crib every time I put the kids down for a nap. At some point I was in the hallway though, and I saw the light go on, get brighter, brighter, off. On, brighter, brighter, off.. and lots of little giggles from the bedroom...
So I opened the door to bust my toddler in the act.. it was the dog. He figured out how to use a touch lamp.. (sort of).. to the intense delight of my son, who was supposed to be napping...
Definitely a smarty pants good boy dog.. xD
Figured I'd share ;)
