Puppy eagerly accepted kisses from the Tester and gave lots of little kisses back, tail wagging fast. Puppy played tug a war this time, chasing the toy in all directions, pouncing at the toy with her front paws. She then took the toy off to a corner to chew, but quickly came back when the Tester called. Puppy retrieved the ball 7x before returning to the Tester with out the ball, crawling up onto their lap for more affection. Puppy heard the loud sound, perked her ears up and slowly walked over to the toy curiously. Puppy was not intimidated by the Tester. She sat eagerly waiting for them to approach her, tail wagging softly. Puppy was very calm when being elevated. She let her back legs sway a bit while she looked around. Puppy was not interested in the sight test. She watched the whip with her eyes but stayed on the Testers lap for a belly rub. Puppy did not notice she was being restrained by the Tester, she just thought she was getting a nice long belly run from the Tester and seemed to really enjoy it. When the Tester fell, puppy immediately walked over to the Testers face and started licking and nibbling the Testers face and ears until the responded.
