About Me

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

Seems as though Rudy's Raiser has been using "NO NOISE" a lot lately... but not in the way you think. (Yeah, I've got barking issues... but we're ignoring that right this second).

For some odd reason, Rudy's Raiser seems to think that I don't need to be making my own noise. She doesn't like the idea of me grabbing a sterile bone, and throwing it across the hard wood flooring... just for the fun of it.

To prove that I was really throwing the bone all over the floor - she decided to take a short video for you guys:

(Movie of Al playing with the bone on our hard flooring - he picks up the bone, and throws it across the room, even though it's soo annoying - it is kinda cute! Note: it's not near as loud in the movie... as it was in person!)

Now "No Noise" is not only for barking/whining issues... it's also for bone noises. I think it's fun, but whatever.

BTW - Rudy's Raiser did take me shopping yesterday, so I enjoyed a day out in town working. Pictures coming soon :) Have a Furry Fun Friday!

LOL I know what those noises are really like in person. Kyo used to throw sterile bones across the room on a tiled floor. Soooooo loud! Are you guys having fun yet? :)
Did you enjoy shopping Al?

Hope you have a lovely time with Rudy's raiser, Al.
A question to Rudy's raiser here. How do you teach and keep them from barking and making silly noise? I've this barking and noise issues with Eva at the moment. Thanks.

Oh yes, the Momster says she knows that noise very well. Ciara has a bedtime ritual that she needs to stop. Once we all get our bedtime treats and Mom heads upstairs to bed, she finds the hard bones and some of her squeaky toys - then she goes through about 10 minutes of noisy play. And then all is quiet and she goes to sleep. Gotta love 'em:)

Jazzi said...

NO way!! Thats the best thing about a bone is throwing it up and letting it fall, I do it ALL the time!!


Suka said...

hey Big Al,

BOL! What a great video! I love a pup that can entertain himself! Sweet bone, too! Nice and big!

Bone play is important, so I think your human just needs to put some earplugs in, problem solved!


houndstooth said...

Shopping sounds like big fun to me! I say the next time you go, you get Rudy's Raiser a pair of earmuffs so you can go home and have fun with your bone in peace!


Mr. Pip said...

This is a funny video. I have been known to throw a bone around (and make lots of noise), too!

Your pal, Pip

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, that is fun. Perhaps Al could do that outside where it doesn't make so much noise?

Brian said...

I loved that video too! You can't throw things across a floor without making noise, everyone knows that!

Maggie Mae said...

Woofs and Licks,

Hi Rudy and Al,
Sorry we haven't been along much. We do visit but somehow haven't been very good about leaving comments.
It is good to see u both having fun and learning so much too.

Don't worry about that 'No noise' command. We all get it at least once a day. we do not bother about it though!!!!**wink***

Bailey Be Good! said...

Oh my! Mommy watched the video with me and she wants to tell you something: "WOW! I just watched the video and that is EXACTLY what Bailey does! She has a lot of bones in the house, and when she plays with them she picks them up, throws them, puts her paws on them and slides across the floor, and then digs to try and get them out of places they've gotten stuck under. I think it's sooo cute!"

Yeah, we're cute. ;)

I loved watching your video. :) :)

Woofs & hugs,


Mango said...

That is seriously annoying. I do the same thing. Hehehe.

Here we do not mind that kind of noise. However it is annoying to get HIT with a tossed bone. Can you train to not toss the bone at others?

Honey the Great Dane said...

Aww, Al - you are SO cute playing with your bone! I especially liked the way you looked back at the camera - hee! hee!

Actually, my human hates noisiness too - she agrees with Rudy's Raiser! - that's one reason why she got a Dane coz we're not generally noisy doggies! :-)
