Cookie Monster had a neurological reaction to mold as a puppy. This poisoning lasted a week, after which he returned to normal.
This puppy is calm and collected. He is not in your face, but stands back, waits and watches. This puppy is confident, but is not an explorer. He would rather stay in the familiar than boldly go where no dog has gone before. This puppy loves attention and affection, but isn't overbearing about it. He has a sort of aloofness to him that doesn't lend itself to getting in someone's face or crowding. This puppy is quiet and self-confident, but isn't bold. He wags his tail when spoken to and cocks his head, but doesn't immediately get up and come over. This is a sing of calmness in mind and spirit. A great combination of behaviors in this puppy.
Cookie Monster is impatient. He whines loudly when it is time for dinner or wants to get out to go for a walk. This trait is genetic. We will be working to eliminate this from his line as we move forward.
