New Trick

Some things are just better with short legs. For example, me!

Some people might think that short legs would be a disadvantage, but I'm faster and stronger than lots of doggies with legs longer than mine, which I think makes it even cooler that my legs are so little in the first place. You already saw me shoot across the field like a rocket to get my soccer ball.. Do you know that I can also jump extremely high, even from a sitting position? My short legs are no disadvantage - in fact, they give me extra power for things like picking up speed immediately and turning sharp corners because I'm so low to the ground.

Anyway, there are other things that are better about short legs, too. One of them is that short legs are CUTE. And they're extra cute when I perform my favorite tricks.

Here's one trick that's way cuter with short legs:

I've been able to do this one for a while now. See the carrot on my paw? I LOVE carrots, but in this trick, I wait until Daddy says it's okay to devour that sweet treat. I have to be even smarter than a regular puppy when I do this trick, because my short legs place my paw - and the delectable carrot on top of it - right in front of my nose.. so close I can almost literally taste it while I'm waiting to chomp it! Such a tough test of patience.

Now in the past week I've learned another trick that's cuter with short legs:

I'm so excited about my new trick that I sometimes can't even wait to be told to do it! Why wouldn't I do something that's so super cute it earns me extra treats and affection from everyone?!

Remember: Just because other people see something about you as a disadvantage doesn't mean that it has to be one. Maybe it's just that special something that makes you extra cute!
