About Me

My photo
I am a male yellow Lab. My birth date is September 4th 2011. I am in training to be a guide dog for the blind. (guide dog school -Southeastern Guide Dogs) I'm my raiser's fifth guide dog puppy. She will keep me for (about) 1 year, then I will head off to harness training! Please feel free to follow my blog and keep up with: Brandon's Life... As a guide dog in training

Toby Tuesday - last times (2)

It's TOBY TUESDAY again!
The subject is "Last Times" (same as last Tuesday's subject) - my "last times" outing today was the 1 hour Kick Boxing class at the YMCA.

My Raiser even got a group photo with her, the teacher, 2 others AND me!

The 1 thing I'm going to miss most when I leave (besides my Raiser of course!) is the YMCA - that's one of my MOST favorite outings!
A 1 hour down-stay, watching people dance to music and then calling it "exercising"... but the BEST thing - I get to do a 1 hour SLEEP. Making many people think I'm "soo" good at a down-stay, but really I'm just sleeping! (I let them think what they want to think!).

So please enjoy the "last time" kick boxing photos below,
*(If you haven't already make sure to leave a comment on my giveaway post - enter to win a fantastic prize!)*

The YMCA looks like a whole lotta fun, Toby. I'm proud of your down-stays/sleeps. I have a hard times with just one minute!

The "lasts" thing still makes me kinda sad. But you're gonna make somebuddy's life SOOOOO happy!

Now that you mention it, I do a pretty good down-stay for up to eight hours at a time Toby. :)

Dear Toby,
The YMCA looks like fun! All I get to watch is Mom on the treadmill at home. Let me tell you - you do NOT want to step on that thing! Zip-bam-boom! Right into the wall! I won't be making that mistake again! I think the YMCA looks way safer than what we do!

My Mom is super glad that last week was an April Fool's joke! She had to turn in Poppy at the last minute (cause she came in heat), 2 1/2 weeks before she was expecting it. It was way sad - but happy too, cause I got to come home early!

Have a great week of lasts with your raiser!

Wags and Wiggles,

Once again, Mom makes that face at me -

Just the thought of me being still with all that STUFF going on...

It just ain't happenin' ;-)


Lola said...

I agree with Mayzie. I know all these "lasts" are leading up to wonderful new beginnings, but there's something about "lasts" that seems so wistful and sad.

I think I could do that for a looooooong time! We greyhounds are great at down stays!


JD and Max said...

Hi Toby - oh wow, we have a feeling that we'd be good at the long 'down-stay' too, he he he! You are SUCH a good boy, and wowzers, lucky boy getting to pose with such cuties!!

As Mayzie said the 'last' thing is kinda sad but your new 'firsts' that will be coming up will be amazing!
