Africa is learning quickly the meaning of "leave it", but she considers Jack and his toys to be the "perfect toy" and has a hard time resisting. I don't want Jack to be subject to the dog so I am always reminding her to leave him alone. She just wants to lick him like crazy. When he cries she will go and sit and stare at him and then back at me as if to say "do something!" Puppies like this need lots and lots of toys. When she gets a toy that is not her toy, I tell her to drop it and I quickly replace it with one she can have.
