Jem in a serious pose

More: He's the most loveable dog and knows multiple hand signs as both of us are Deaf and communicate in American Sign Language. We constantly use sign language to communicate with him, and use visual cues to get his attention- for example, flick the light on/off to get his attention or sign W for walk, etc. He's a smart boy but with some quirks- he's afraid of plastic/brown bags and will stare at it when he walks by it. He loves his Purina Pro Plan Chicken/Rice! That's all we feed him- dry, no wet. He loves going to doggie day care and his ears perks when I sign "Play Day at Kozy Kennels" .On the mornings he goes to play day, he'll lay on the stair step waiting patiently to leave the house.
