Fun at a Puppy Meeting

Hey furry friends!
I had such a fun time at the puppy meeting last Saturday. We got to ride on a lynx light rail all the way to down-town. Our puppy group walked around for 30 minutes are so. We stopped to see some water fountains. One place even had steps to walk over the water... but I was a little thirsty... and decided I wanted to take a swim (see movie at the bottom). In the end I was all right :)
It was some great exposure for us dogs. We even had a visitor from a different group. "Laura" is a pretty black lab who is heading down to the school for IFT next month. She joined our group last Saturday and we were happy to have her! (see her below in some pictures - she's the black dog wearing the harness).
After some walking we stopped for a little while to do some obedience work. We worked on "stays" & "recalls". And finished the recall with a "heel" which my raiser said I did soo great!

The 3 newest dogs to the group were at the puppy meeting. Lexie, Charlie S, & Joe were all there; with their cuteness too!

All in all we had a blast, enjoy the pictures (and movie) below.
BTW - if you haven't already please check out the giveaway I'm doing. You could win an awesome new leash & collar! So make sure to check it out!

Furry kisses!

(Movie of Rudy & I walking on steps over the water. Rudy wanted a drink... and decided to "try" and get one... he fell in! You see in the movie that he "jumped' in - and I quickly pulled him out!)

Oh Rudy, don't you know to look before you leap? :)

Such cute pictures! There are times I wish my school would allow us to stick our pups in harness, but oh well.

Keep up the good work Rudy!

Looks like you had a great time at the meeting. And getting a drink by jumping in the water is for sure fun!

Sonic said...

Was it so warm that you felt like you needed a swim? I'm not sure if that blue vest will help you float!

Doris Sturm said...

So, I take it he was not allowed to go in that water?

Rudy, you are getting so big, but what a wonderful day you had with all your friends. You're doing so well!

Kari in WeHo said...

oh wow it sounds like that was one of the funnest meetings yet!

I watched that movie twice. Silly lab. Momma has to do special training with Dexter around the pool to try and teach him not to go in unless she says it is OK, but you know how those water dogs are. I loved Rudy's little ballet move there.
