Meet Gator, our Golden Retriever.
Well, his bio would consist mostly of chewing things, attempting to dig
holes (in which he trips or falls into) and playing bark at the cats
(oh, that's a fun game!) He sits and shakes hands (OK, paws), will lie
down and loves, loves, loves to chase a ball when thrown. However, his
dislikes include letting go of the ball when he brings it back to you.
He hasn't quite figured out that it would be ever so much easier to get
the ball thrown if he would, indeed, give it back. He has learned all he
knows by a good and liberal dose of treats as rewards and lots of love
and lap time.
