Virginia, Part Three
Halloween night, after we got back from dinner, I gave Raquel the choice of going trick-or-treating or just staying inside. She chose to stay inside and play with the dogs and play some video games, too. We all got into our comfy clothes, pajamas I guess, and decided to watch a scary movie (after we played with the dogs for a while).
Raquel was very interested in giving the dogs commands to make them do "tricks". Her voice just isn't commanding enough (yet). The dogs never listened to her. They know how to roll over, play dead (when you say "BANG"), lay down, sit, stand up, speak/howl and take food from your hand. Maybe they do other stuff, too, I may not have seen it all.
Shmoopie (my favorite) is the tan one and Tyrone is the black one. They're both rambunctious little boys. I like Shmoopie the best because he has a sweet personality and loves to be loved. He was holding my hand with his front paws to make me stay with him. Samantha says he acts more human than dog.
Animals adore Norman. That's Tyrone giving him kisses!
Shmoopie loves feet. Those are mine. Look, he's zoning out, or is he just blocking out the smell? I wish I could ask him.
Part Four to come!
