It wasn't always easy for mom to train me. Actually, I'm still learning. She's learning too. She never had a dog before and I'm not the easiest dog to take care of. I didn't like to be on my own and created BIG messes when mom was away at work or in the other room. I destroyed a lot of things and still do. Owning a dog takes a lot of patience. Oh, and costs a lot too. What can I say? - I'm high maintenance.
