Puppy Meeting at Ikea

I had a furry fun puppy meeting at Ikea recently, and everybody was quite surprised that it was not only my first time being there - but also fur my raiser!
We had a great time during the meeting, and we were even given a personal tour by some of Ikea's employees! (including going "behind the scenes" so we could see the cardboard eater, ride a different style elevator, see fork-lifts & much more!).
After working in Ikea & also doing some obedience, we shopped around fur a bit and then headed over to the Ikea restaurant fur lunch time.
Enjoy the wonderful pictures my raiser's sister took!


Look at my furry cute sit-stay!

My furry awesome puppy group!

 Guess my raiser doesn't give the best of commands... cause we're going the WRONG way :)

Picture of Brandon walking through Ikea, you can see the arrow on the ground going the opposite way... oops!

 See, I can do a loose-leash walk with other pups around!

Awesome elevator we got to ride :)

Oh Brandon, you are doing so well. What a busy day you had. I also thought your sit/stay was adorable. You are learning so fast. I'm really enjoying watching your adventure.

hey Brandon,

What a fun day! And so many handsome dogs! I bet it was great fun to meet and greet them all, and to tour IKEA. The elevator looks very cool, and it gave a couple of you pups laser-blue eyes! Fun!

Hi Brandon, lucky you, getting your own tour of Ikea. Mom can't find her way out of that place, wonder if she could get a tour guide. Hope you got some Swedish meatballs!
