is Cosmo. He is mine and my husband's first dog and we picked a
wild one for sure. We rescued him from the humane society as a puppy.
He was so cute and playful in the holding area I couldn't say no. Truth
is, I saw him online and emailed my husband and he went right away to see
if he was still there. Lucky for us he was.
He is very protective of me and barks at anyone walking by. Sometimes
he even barks at the wind blowing the bushes in front of the house. He
loves to play outside and chase his squeaky chicken. He will also do
anything for food. He sits, gives paw, gives five and ten, sits up and
rolls over. He is so smart he learned to open the kitchen cabinet door
just so he could play with the sponges underneath. Cosmo is also very
curious, as you can see in the bottom photo. He had to know what that
flashing thing was I kept making him look at.
Cosmo likes to be the center of attention, too. If we are watching TV
and he wants something, he will stand right in front of it so you can
only see him. If that doesn't work, he will find something he isn't
supposed to have just so we will chase him to get it back.
I love coming home to find him there. He gets so excited he wiggles
like a worm - it just makes me laugh and makes my day. I hope he keeps us
smiling for a long time to come.
