Saucy is the largest pet in the Ziring household. She is still a fairly young dog, and she's still very cute and affectionate.
Saucy was Dog of the Day on Feb 6, 2001.
A message from Saucy:
Oh well, it's time to go outside for another walk...
...here is a picture of me sleeping with daddy,
all tired out by my walk, drawn by mommy (Julie).
The table below shows some of Saucy's personality. She is very energetic and playful, but isn't really well trained. The picture on the right shows saucy on her first visit to the beach, in September 1998.
I went to school at The Coventry School, a canine
training academy in Columbia, MD.
In class, I was taught the following things:
|Behavior||Command||Hand Signal||My Response|
|Sitting||SIT||Palm up||Sit, sometimes, briefly|
|Laying down||DOWN||Palm to floor||Gnaw hand|
|Staying||STAY||Palm in face||Jump at hand|
|Coming||COME||Hold out hand||Run past|
Still, I'm a good student and try hard to get treats. This past June 19, 1997, I graduated from beginner class! Here is my official diploma!
