Package

My trainer had the best "collar comment" on raisingaddie'sblog.

For the thank you prize she was given a $50 donation to a Charity of her choice(yes she chose SouthEasternGuideDogs-SEGD).
And a bag of dog treats, though when we got the package, we were also given a very cute toy, a ball, & a book about dog confessions (my trainer thinks it's quite funny!).

Enjoy looking at the awesome gifts "I"got,
Thanks addie!

Rodeo

You guys might have seen the post Frankie did about going to the rodeo last year.
Well my trainer & her family took the Japanese exchange student to see a rodeo. Most of it was quite boring, but every now & then when I decided to look I might see something interesting.
They even had some trick riders there.

Pool party- pictures & 1 movie

Hey guys, just like I promised, here is the post with pictures & movies attached!
This was my first pool party, EVER. I have never gotten into a real swimming pool.

When we first arrived I was let loose in the backyard, right away I took off to play with my siblings.

My first swim was not on purpose. I accidentally put my paw in, and after that I was wet! We then got put back on a leash and did dog obedience around the pool. After that one at a time we did obedience into the pool. (someone got into the pool and called us, once we got "pushed" in she took us for a little swim then pointed us to the stairs).

Once we finished with that, we were turned back loose for a little while, and my trainer went to change into another pair of clothes so she could get in the pool with me. A couple other people got into the pool to, and each puppy got to swim again. My trainer helped some of the dogs work on the "right" way to swim.

Hope you enjoy the pictures & one movie!

Air Mattress

My trainer is hosting a Japanese exchange student- which means there is a extra bed in our room. (It's a air mattress on the ground) and I have claimed it for a dog bed, it looks just like one, but twice the size!!

I have even gone in my crate and carried out all my dog toys to put on my new dog bed:)
