Growing up is difficult for everyone, include puppies, but learning new things can also be deeply rewarding. Sometimes, life transitions seem daunting, whether you’re leaving college, switching jobs, or jumping from a very tall couch for the very first time. 9-week-old puppy Pierre (how French!) recently faced this challenge. He was frightened at first, but with the encouragement of his friends and family, he made the leap. As we face future transitions, the twists and turns of growing up, it’s always nice to have a sweet dog to identify with. Way to go, Pierre!
