Being a big sister is not easy!

Noelle takes her job as a big sister very seriously. She is eager to teach Ziggy all about being a good dog. Unfortunately, her idea of being a good dog is a bit different than most.

First Noelle teaches Ziggy how she makes her scary snarl face. She explains that scary snarl faces are very good for intimidating other dogs who get too close to her food.


Ziggy still needs some more practice.


Next, Noelle teaches Ziggy the art of furniture destruction. She watches proudly as he attempts to destroy the futon.


Finally, Noelle teaches Ziggy how to look adorable so her dad will let them into the bedroom when he goes to sleep.


Another hard day's work at being a big sister is behind her. Tomorrow, Noelle plans to teach Ziggy how to scare away potential adopters so he can stay with us forever.

(Don't worry, tomorrow I'm going to take Ziggy to an adoption event and foil Noelle's plans - One permanent dog like Noelle is all I can handle!)

Noelle You are amazing. I hope you plan to teach dawgie classes in the future. You could earn tons of green papers for buying treats. Ziggie looks like a good student. I will want to know how this NEXT class turns out. I'm thinking he should pass it with flying colors.
Happy Valentine's Day to you!!

Noelle is a good teacher, Ziggie better get a home quick in case he becomes a good learner.

Noelle, you are a great teacher, but Ziggy's scary snarl face is just way to happy to be scary! It is more like a smiley face!

I just started following you, and have really enjoyed my visits to your blog! Until a couple of weeks ago, I fostered Golden Retrievers for 10 years--But when I adopted my last 2 fosters, it means that the "inn is full!" So it's great to follow the blog of someone who opens their heart and home to pups that need someone special to give them a chance and help them find their way!
