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

An Elephant is HUGE & Snakes are SCARY!

Yesterday morning was when Sparkie showed up.
Yesterday night was when...
We met an Elephant, saw a boxing Kangaroo, a huge snake - and watched a performance.
What was it?

A mini circus!
My raiser happens to be friends with another teenage girl her age - who just so "happens" to be part of a traveling circus!!
They only see each other once or twice a year - but always keep in contact!
My raiser's friend's family owns a huge Elephant - so all of my raiser's dogs get to "meet" an Elephant!
Yesterday, Sparkie and I both got to "meet" her - (My raiser kept us at a safe distance).
Though you couldn't get picture during the performance (and my raiser had 2 dogs most of the time!) she did manage to snap a couple pictures of us - so make sure to see them below!

During the performance, while they were doing a clown act we heard a noise. The noise was apart of the act, but man was it loud! (My raiser said it was even louder than a cannon!) Sparkie slept right through it and I woke up - but then went right back to sleep.
My raiser said we did so very well!

I hope you enjoy the pictures and the giveaway post will be coming (hopefully) this week!

Ohmidogness, Rudy! I'm trying to gets all caught up on my bloggie furends' posties. I kinda got behind what with my contest and all!

It sure does look like you've been having some big adventures! I think you're awfully brave. I'm pretty sure that that noise and that elephant would have skeered the hoohah outta me!

Sparkie looks real sweet. I'm glad you're enjoying his visit!

Oh my! I've had dreams of introducing my pups to the elephants I worked with and I must say the elephant you and Sparkie got to meet is gorgeous! What a lucky dog you are :-D

Doris Sturm said...

Oh, how fun - a circus, and a friend who works in the circus. I just love the Circus!!! What a big time you had, Rudy - you are getting the "training" in all sorts of situations. What a good boy you and Sparky were to not bark and carry on ... I bet you all had a good time. I also sah the Kanga in the back ground, boy, you are getting around ;-)

p.s. thanks for visiting me today!

Mango said...

Is there nothing that doesn't scare you? And still a puppy! You are totally super dogs.


P.S. I agree, El'bow IS bigger.

ocmist said...

Wow! A REAL Elephant?! That must have been very ... "different." Your raiser is doing a great job getting you used to strange things, isn't she. I think that would be a bit scary! The CC Pups

Raiser Erin said...

Wow Rudy! Were you scared of the big elephants at all? It looks like you had a lot of fun!
