I love the happiness of this dog! Dogs are happy unless they are mopey because you are going out and not taking them with you.
When I was a kid, we had a tiny mechanical chicken. I believe it was orange. It had a key, just like this one. You wound it up, and its legs would move up and down, sort of walking, but mostly falling. Then it would stop, and you would wind it again and again. It was great fun.
I have two dogs from the same litter; Yorkies! They couldn’t be more different. One is like the mechanical dog ready to go, and the other not so much. It makes for a challenging walk. Two different leashes. One pulling and the other sitting. I am now taking an online course in dog training in the hopes of getting them a little more on the same page.
