Training Da Sky

I always knew that I couldn’t influence da weather but do you know that you can train da Sky? It turns out to be pretty easy too. Who would have known?! Sky has had multiple lessons in an unofficial capacity as soon as our vet gave him a clean bill of health. On one of Sky’s trips, he went to agility training with me. He didn’t have to jump through hoops but he sure did get a lot of attention. Nobody took photos of me. I know, how come????! To even things out, I’m throwing in a photo of my first encounter with agility way back in 2016.

Sky even went shopping and came home with a new leash. Unfortunately, no treats whatsoever. I quadruple checked. Sky also had his first puppy pawty with my CCI buddies to welcome Kirby a new nine-week-and-counting CCI pup. I couldn’t go as I had to pawsonally dogtor Q , you know the second in command at headquarters, back to health. Sometimes you have to set your priorities. Stay out of trouble this weekend, I will try to do the same.

The Cave

The cave has been an integral part of the training curriculum at headquarters. The first photo shows Ms. Zulu when she was still a youngster, about three years old just like I am now.

I had to dig deep in the archives to find this old photo of myself when I was about 2 months old.

The third photo shows Sky in his first week at headquarters, when he had just discovered the cave.

The cave is very old; it dates back to many years B.Z. (Before Zulu). It looks like it’s part of a Stonehenge circle which could be true or not. The cave has been explored extensively by all four-legged beings, young and old, who resided at headquarters at some point in time.  Over the years each of us has put our own paw-stamp on it so it means a lot to all of us including the two-legged ones.

Many Firsts

There is a first for everything. Sky had many firsts since he became my new little brother earlier this month.  He turned 25 weeks for the very first and last time:

He got to travel in the car in style on the back seat albeit with a safety harness on but without a crate. He behaved like a prince with manners with and without my supervision:

Sky met new friends and hopped on a boat, maybe next time we will take it for a spin:

And Sky learned first hand that the beach is fun!

Can’t wait to show Sky more exciting stuff!
