Question submitted by Kevin, age 10
How long did it take you to learn to be an awesome, loving, caring, rolling dog?
Wow, Kevin, what a big question! Well, I tend to be a bit humble, but I believe I have always been a loving and caring dog. I just happen to meet more people now that I have wheels, so I am able to share my love and care for others even more. That makes my heart feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Being loving and kind to others is really quite easy. All you have to do is just remember to treat others like you'd like them to treat you. Arf-a-roo!
