Dexter is the name of our dog. We have had him now for almost 5 years. He is a great dog, very loving, friendly (most of the time), and playful. He is some sort of rat terrier, and is about 25 pounds.
We have taught him some tricks to do for treats such as: speak, sit, lay down, roll over, stand up, twirl (stand up spin), and bang-bang (play dead). He knows what the difference is with his ball (tennis ball), bone (chew bone), and rope (play rope). He is very smart. I believe that he has trained us well. ha.
He likes to go for car rides. He is like most dogs when riding in the automobiles of their owners, sticking his nose out to capture every smell.
Please excuse the photo quality (taken with my phone and backwards at that, but being safe -at stops). Here he is nose out the window, acting like a regular dog.
And no more than 5 minutes later, he is sitting in his seat. He acts like he needs a car seat. I swear, he is a person sometimes, well most of the time. He certainly acts like it, especially riding in the car. He will get bored with the smells and sit for a while. He will lay down and nap if he is tired, or we are going farther than he expected.
He is family. We love him.
