|Sweet baby Jasmine, 6 weeks old|
But now I have a grown into a big girl and I have learned LOTS of things! I now know how to sit and wait at the door until I'm invited in. I also do this before coming out of my crate and while waiting for my food to be put down for me. Even when I'm getting carried away during play time, Mommy just has to say, "Eehh! Wait..." and I settle and sit until Mommy is ready to play again. My knowing how to do this at only 4 months old just confirms to Mommy that there is no excuse to have an out of control, jumping all over you doggie.

Mommy has also taught me down-stay. I'm up to about 90 seconds before I get antsy. Mommy thinks this is good though. I am also trying to learn to resist nommies. That's a hard one, but I'm making progress.

Some of my other good-girl acomplishments are "leave-it", "off", and within the last week I have started going to the back door and nudging the blinds to tell Mommy I need to go potty! Mommy gets very happy with me when I do this. And guess what! I have been getting to stay out of my crate more because I'm getting to be more "trustworthy." Also, just for fun, Mommy has taught me to "spin". I don't know why, but she and the sisters like it, and I get treats, so whatever...
I have also learned something very important from my big blog friends...MEDITATIONS! Mommy didn't think puppies had such deep thoughts, but see for yourself...
Haven't I learned a lot in just 4 little months? Whoever says Danes aren't smart has clearly never owned one. Mommy says although I still have a lot to learn, I'm already one the best doggies in the world!

PS: This weekend Mommy's taking me to the pet shop for a bigger crate and a new collar for my birthday! The sisters said presents are the best part of birthdays, and I think they may be right!
