Diggins on our deck his second day here
Diggins was born on May 13, 2009. We named him Diggins because that was the town that we got him from. He is verry playful, and gets lonely easily. He has the cutest bark, and he is SUCH a lap dog. He will sit in your lap or lay beside you for hours if you let him.
We are working on training him currently, but he wont pay attention. He is starting to learn his name, and when he gets that down, I think he will be able to get everything else. From what I have learned, they are eager learners, I think that right now he is just to exited about his new place to learn anything yet (we have only had him 4 days).
He is an outside dog, and he is VERRY smart. We put him in a small pen his first night and within 10 minutes, then we put him on our deck. We woke up the next morning and he was sleeping on the mat in front of our front door, he had slid through the bars on the deck. So we put the small fence around the deck, we figured he cant jump and squeeze at the same time, and it has worked so far. He is shy, but verry playfull underneath. He chews on anything he can get his paws on. We love him SO much.
