1, Bridger Bridger has gone home with the Holliday family of Dayton, Wyoming.
Greetings, Bridger is
growing growing growing! He is "sitting" on command, mostly "staying"
on command, learning all about "laying down" and doing well in
"heeling". Puppy treats are a great bribe! He knows his
name now and quickly learned "no". I am so amazed by how smart he
is. My son is teaching him the art of "fetch" and
"release". He seemed to only have had one 'blue" evening where I
just concluded that he missed his siblings :( He
had four potty accidents the first week he was here and none since
then. He goes to the door when he needs to potty. My
husband is very impressed. Bridger is such a lover. He is
learning to love a bath too! Our Corgi just loves him and has
taken on the job of "babysitting" him when they are in the
