Gone with the Wind: 2

After the yummies-out-of-the-tummy affair earlier in the week we now seem to be back on track. High Ten to the staff at the ER and my own vet! So finally I can show you more of the stuff we did when Adonis was here. Of course, we had to have a slumber party. We put our lounge beds close together and discovered that with a new friend there is lots to woof about. I was especially curious to find out if puppies interests nowadays are different from the ones I had as a pup. There doesn’t seem to be much to report on that front yet.

I assume my generation is still pretty up to snuff. Like many of my peers, I have attended school and still do. I also have play dates, doggie TV & music, sailing & canoeing outings, agility fun, secret missionseducational toys, as well as pie and ice cream. And now you know we even have slumber parties. This is a bit different from when Ms. Zulu was growing up. Her puppy years are way behind her so it isn’t odd that she can’t remember everything. I do know that she has been around quite a bit; she has told me some unbelievable stories of her outings long gone. Still, Ms. Zulu is pretty sure that she didn’t have slumber parties with doggie music and TV.

We tried to watch Capone’s graduation ceremony on the day it was aired but unfortunately, the link was not working. We checked the link today and now it is up and running. It can be found here. BTW, do you remember Keane? He was the first CCI puppy who stayed at headquarters. He graduated the same day as Capone and you can also see him on TV. Two famous dogs who crossed my path; pretty amazing isn’t it?!

Happy Weekend; be sure to make time for play and slumber parties,

Benji. 

Graduation

It’s another day in paradise as my neighbor says. Today I graduated from Basic Agility Training! Before I even graduated I enrolled myself in the class “Agility Training 1”. I’m looking forward to it. I love the A-frame the best. The jumps and boardwalk are easy peasy.

During the previous training session, I had a blast racing through the tunnel. That was not so smart on my part as I discovered that it tends to result in fewer treats. Today I used my brains and pretended to hesitate before walking through the curved! tunnel. It worked and I ended up with way more treats. Proof that I’ve learned a ton of stuff and earned my badge.

Wishing you a great week and make sure you get rewarded for the work you do,

Benji
