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

Where was I?

ROLLER SKATING!
Okay, no I wasn't... but my raiser and her human friends were :)
(answering the question from my previous post)

Picture of Brandon & I at the roller skating rink; Brandon is in a down-stay on the colorful carpet, and I'm standing beside him on skates

I still don't get why my raiser wouldn't let me skate WITH her, but I did enjoy having kids skate over to pet me!

(Movie of Brandon at the skating rink, lots of kids are skating by him (on the carpet), and a few pet Brandon as they "skate" by)

  
My raiser was happy to have me with her, since she's yet to expose me to a skating rink, I wasn't to fond of the idea of my raiser skating away - and me having to be in a down-stay, but she did come back fur lots of visits! (and photos).
Over all, I had an AWESOME time and it was a furry great exposure for a guide dog in training! It's kinda hard maintaining a sit-stay (or just staying calm) when lots of kids are skating by :)

Make sure to keep your eye (or nose) out fur my next post... it will be so furry cool, being all about another guide dog in training I met today (instead of a "play date" us guide dog pups call it a "work date"!), my & the other doggy's raiser met at the mall, and let us 2 doggies work together.

Have a furry great weekend!!

Brandon, that's pretty impressive! I love to go pretty much everywhere with my human, but I do not think I'd like the skating rink. The noise would bother me after a bit. Kuster trains a lot, but if he were there, well, a lot of people on roller skates would be on the ground! You really know your stuff!

Brandon,
Guilty as charged, I thought you was at da V-E-T. The skakin' rink looks way more fun. :)

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Bella and Ollie said...

It's amazing how you can sit there and watch. If we were there, Bella would be chasing everyone and Ollie would be hiding under the carpet (he is a bit of a scaredy-dog)

K9friend said...

Brandon, what a good boy you are! I can't believe how still and politely you sit and watch all the activity. You are awesome!

Wow! Impressive! My dogs don't even execute a down-stay when I walk to the kitchen!

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

Hey Brandon.
Woo didn't wanna chase those skating kids... Oh man. I watched your video and I was ready to go. Whoa. Can you at least disco dance while in a down stay?

Mom likes staring at the back of my head when I'm looking out the door. She says she knows what I'm thinking....

I'm thinking "If I look out the door, mom will stare at the back of my head....cuz I'm gorgeous from any angle."

Brandon, you are going to be the best guide dog ever. You are learning so much, I'm so impressed with you. I'm sure everyone loved seeing you too.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Slobbers,

Suka said...

hey Brandon,

Pawsome! My human loves roller skating and said it is tons of fun! Too bad you couldn't try on some doggie roller skates. BOL!

I am glad you enjoyed yourself and did so well. You seem like such an adaptable pup. No matter where you go, you are always so clam and cool and collected. Keep up the great work!

Vertigo said...

Looks like was fun for to watch all the crazy people rolling around on wheels! For one would have liked to chase and chase and chase.

Used to go rollerblading with Sidekick (not rollerblades on self, silly! Only on Sidekick) and was much fun.

OOH, they should let doggies skate!!
