I love to play with my dog, Boots. We have so much fun with each other. I love to play tug-of-war with him. He always wins because he never ever gives up.

When he has to go outside, I go out with him, and we chase each other. Sometimes I pretend he is a bad guy when he chases me. When we are done, he is tired so he curls up with me.

I love to give him doggy treats and train him. I am training him to play dead, but it's not easy. That's what my best friend Boots and I like to do.
