Oh gosh, so many things I love about any and all of my dogs, past and present. I'll limit it to the two current, and keep it sorta short.
My favorite thing is how she loves to snuggle right into me, either tucking herself into my back or behind my legs, or snuggling into my chest so I can hug her. She's my emotional support dog, and may yet turn into a service dog for me, depending on if I really need her to accompany, and how she takes to the tasks I'd need. In general, I love her super soft floppy ears, how she is little miss prissy, her groaning and grunting when she gets comfortable, and how attentive she is to me. Her attitude is pretty good, she loves to learn; she is a very soft dog, and I can't use corrections very much if at all. I love that she is very willing to alert bark (and bark and bark and bark) to warn us, and how wildly enthusiastic she is about every person EVER. She's my perma-puppy, and I take her almost everywhere with me.
It's so hard to pick a favorite thing, but I guess it would be his confidence and unflappability. Of course I love the ear dance thing (we have teepee ears right now!!), and the huge enthusiasm he has for doing whatever we want, if he understands what we're asking. He's going to be The Mate's service and mobility dog, and although he's very young, we really think he will be excellent at it. I'm also thinking about taking him into Rally, since it will help him learn more and give him a 'job' even sooner. He is SO super soft that I can barely resist sticking my face into his neck and just nuzzling him. I love the way he gets all zoned out when we brush him, and how vocal he is when he wants his way.
