Yes, yes, the math is absolutamente correct: B = 4! That’s roughly 30+ years in human years! That means I have voting rights AND I will never ever have to go to school again, right?! OK, let’s vote for B-day cake with treats efury day AND play all day. How is this different from my current life? Hmm, hmm…Maybe I should plead the fifth.
Anyhowls, for the big occasion we took some pics. Why the long faces you ask? Well, I would like to see yours if you had to sit on an empty tummy in front of yummies for endless days! Luckily we didn’t pass out before we could scoop the barely visible yummies in our tummies. We do know that it’s healthier to exercise a bit after eating so we played some on the way to bed and then took a well deserved nap to dream of endless summer days with lots of squirrels to chase.
Pawlease, let us eat!
Hey brother I don’t think this fits anymore
There’s more space here
Make sure you get some zzz-s in before the end of the day,
How was your weekend? We had a busy one. We traveled to an agility event in the pooch mobile. I won two first places in Novice Jumpers; M is very proud. Okay, I’ll admit, maybe I’m a bit too. The blue and green ribbons I won do look good on my chest, don’t you think? Since I had two qualifying runs, I could pick out a toy too. I choose one for Da Sky because he cheered me on. He likes balls and tug toys so I got the perfect toy, a combination of the two so that we can play together. After all, you gotta remember to play hard after you work hard. But, if possible skip the hard work and go straight to the play hard part.

Trying it out
Well, I better go. I got some Zuluism* to catch up on. I didn’t really have time for it over the weekend. And you know what they say if you don’t have time for that then you have to do more of it.
Hope you have a pawriffic week with loads of fun intermingled with Zuluism,
I know, I know, we haven’t been in touch for a while but we’re still here and not in jail yet although the heading might tell you otherwise. Life has been fun with the little guy. He is turning into a big champ who is up for anything that keeps him moving! Agility, dock diving, you name it and he is in. He even got invited to herd some sheep AND he is allowed to come back! We can honestly say that he has a few tricks up his sleeve. That’s what led us to sit for the Trick Dog Exam in May. I’m happy to report that we are now officially two tricksters. That should keep us out of jail at least for a little while.
Where is da treat?
Let’s cut this crap
Just one more month and Da Sky will be one! I hope there will be a big partay with a mighty birthday cake. I’m definitely counting down for that one!
Hope you’re having a good time.
Don’t forget to play and laugh!
Benji & Sky
As promised, here is the new addition to my uniform. Ms. Zulu assisted me while I posed for the first time with the new scarf. So this time it was Dogtors with Borders. Yes, Ms. Zulu is at least 50% Border Collie as far as we can tell. If you would like to know more about my Dogtors without Borders work then go to my resume page. We updated it recently.
As you can see Ms. Zulu and I took our job very seriously and we were very focused throughout the photo session. This may or may not have anything to do with the treats in front of us. You be the judge.
OK, gotta run, I have a farewell party to attend to say goodbye to my best buddy Capone and hello to a new CCI friend in training. Yeah, Capone is leaving us in 1.5 weeks to start professional service dog training in South Florida. We will miss him for sure. I (well maybe one of my dedicated assistants) will try to capture some nice photos so you can see Capone one more time and to introduce the new CCI puppy. I’m sure you will get to see more of the newbie because when Capone is traveling to South Florida we get to babysit the new 9-week old pup for four days. That oughta be fun.
And remember, be dedicated and thou shall be rewarded,
One more day till Da Day! I decided to go a day earlier to spend the day watching life TV with my friend Da Phenny in France. So I got my pilot scarf, took some treats from my treat account, went to the airport, rented a plane, and now I am finally on my way. À bientôt; will see you soon on the other side! Benji.
Me and da plane
France, here I come!
SOF leader Da Phenny has an update on the Mach 2+ test, see: WEIM-WEDNESDAY. Stay tuned and make sure that you are in position with all your gear ready; there is bound to be a big bang and it may be over before you know it. The question is will any barriers be broken?
