It is nearly to time for us to go walking on leashes, but first we must spend more time exploring at home and teaching people how to give us treats.

For example, here is big brother James showing us how to sit down (which we already know how to do). He trains us with carrots.

Sometimes we entertain ourselves when Mama and Papa Bear go into the house.

Look Serena, a worm!

Here are cousins Natalie and Kaly. See how nicely they are behaving for us?
People should know their places in a well-ordered dog world.

Yup, at the end of a tiring day you should rest.
If a job needs doing, then do it. Do what you gotta do!
