I have been a busy boy this week. Niamh always gets to be Barbara's demo dog at class and events. I am very jealous of her and I whine when they leave me to go off and do fun things together. But Tuesday night was my time. She said that she needed my help for a lecture. Of course I was very excited.
I was a bit disconcerted to find out that the title of the lecture was "Surviving Canine Adolescence" and I was to be the adolescent in question! Barbara wanted to show people things they could do to help their adolescents grow up to be great dogs. She actually told people that I was the most destructive puppy she has ever had!! How demeaning! However I demoed my excellent mat work, which has definitely helped me have some self control.
Look at the nice elephant stuffie I got for helping Barbara. And I got to hear that Miss Practically Perfect Niamh wasn't always so perfect. Barbara said that Niamh was very flakey when she was a teenager!! Ha!
I went to Jordan Lake for a swim and to chase sticks.
It is fun to splash around.
Unfortunately because it has been so hot here all through June, the lake water was very warm and not really that refreshing. But I did get some good playing in and I needed the exercise.
It finally cooled off today so I got to run with my girlfriend Scout.
Don't I have a sweet face?
Scout and I play rough but then we are very sweet with each other too. We will be friends forever!
I've been a good boy this week so it is time to see what I can rip to pieces.
