Gatsby makes me so proud. One of my clients, Milka, is staying with us while her humans are on vacation, and Gatsby has been so good acting as her role model for training as well as showing her affection.
Tonight was no exception, and I couldn't help but beam with pride as I watched Gatsby and Milka "wrestle" on my bed. Gatsby remained down on his belly the whole time while Milka climbed all over him, and he would stop to gently groom her with his teeth from time to time when a break was required. It's so refreshing to see an 85-pound dog cuddle with a 6-pound mini Daschund puppy, and I just had to share it.
Thank you Gatsby for helping to show people that big dogs don't have to be scary...it's all about the training, exposure and proper supervision.
Growing up in the country in Pennsylvania gave me tons of experience with animals from a very early age. I later pursued a career in horseback riding and also have experience as a veterinary technician. I have a strong passion for animals and have an uncanny ability to connect with all sorts of furry friends.
