2. Join A Dog Community
Join a fun, friendly dog community (like Bil-Jac @Facebook) to post pics of your best friend to have the world ooh and ahh over all year round! We love to see what you and your new best friend are up to each month (and you could even win fun prizes along the way).
3. Strike A Pose
Have a picture framed, enlarged or painted to remember those precious puppy moments. It will be a constant reminder of the fleeting magic of puppyness that makes you smile each and every day!
4. Road Trip
Take your best friend to the pet store to wander around and pick out her own toys that she can enjoy for months to come. If she is still a puppy, be sure she has all of her shots before venturing out. Trips like this provide another social interaction to integrate your dog into different situations that will help her grow in confidence.

7. Help A New Friend In Need
