Example text

I wanted Blue to know youngsters of all ages while he was still a puppy, so he舗d learn to behave properly around them whether they were gently rubbing his ears or mischievously pulling his tail. So it was that Blue舗s first playmates included my neighbors Erika and Andrew. Erika was about to graduate from high school, and Andrew was a couple of years younger. They舗d grown up around dogs and had always done well with the dogs at my house, and they舗re smart kids whose parents are generous. They eagerly volunteered to be the guinea pigs as we tested Blue舗s reaction to older kids, with their mother, Stacy, and me standing cautiously next to them in their backyard.

He bounds at me with puppy love practically flying off the tips of his flapping ears, jumping into my arms several times a day simply because he舗s so happy. And I get stopped at least three times a week at the local parks by people asking what breed he is, with his gorgeous brindle coat standing out in a suburban desert of yellow Labradors. The more I considered Blue舗s personality, the more I realized how different from Stella he was. I began to see how somebody might have called Stella 舠damaged舡 or 舠unadoptable舡 because she needed so much training, so much exercise, and so much patience during the first couple of years.

He is an absolutely wonderful puppy. He舗s a fast learner舒he knew his name, 舠sit,舡 and 舠lie down舡 inside of four days, and he set a world record of only three accidents before figuring out how to use the doggy door. He can never replace Floyd in my heart, but he sure does help to supplant the overwhelming sense of loss and sadness with pure, unadulterated joy. He bounds at me with puppy love practically flying off the tips of his flapping ears, jumping into my arms several times a day simply because he舗s so happy.
