Piper is the epitome of a well-rounded pooch.

Enter her kennel, and she runs over to nuzzle you and get some petting. When she sees the lead, Piper settles down for you to get her ready for a walk. She could use more leash training, probably because she can hardly wait to get off-lead and play.

One of her canine playmates, Echo, is bigger and stronger, and loves to be chased around the field. Piper is happy to comply, but Echo gets a big surprise when Piper digs in and catches him. Sheer determination must be how she gets her legs moving so fast.

Balancing people-time, doggie-time, and time to just chill is the secret to Piper’s contentment.
