Happy 7 months Toby!

*(written by Toby's trainer)*
Toby turned 7 months on Tuesday the 27th, he is really growing up! It seems like just yesterday I was holding a adorable little yellow Lab, boy do they grow up fast!

I would like to wish Toby a very happy "7 months"!!

Hope you enjoy this slide show I made of Toby, it goes back to pictures from 6 weeks all the way to 7 months. (sorry about the barking in one of the movies!)

Walk-A-Thon 2010...

Hey guys, guess what?!?
My trainer made me a fundraising page for Walk-A-Thon 2010... which means I will be attending SEGDI Walk-A-thon next year. I am soo excited!

No donation is too little to help me. Check out my page and PLEASE send it to anyone you know who might want to help out!

My trainer's goal is to raise $1000, enough money to sponsor the medical care for 1 litter of puppies from birth to 9 weeks!

Please feel free to post this on your blog- the more help the better!

My trainer has yet to make it to her goal in the past years, but I hope to make this year different & help her make it to her goal!

Thank you soo much!!

I'm back...

My trainer picked me up at 10 this morning (she drove!). I was soo happy to see her!!
I did have a blast at my puppy sitters house (she had another dog for me to play with), but I am really glad to be back at my house!

I had a fun puppy class last Thursday, my trainer's mother took some pictures of us there (those are the ones closer to the bottom of this post).

Enjoy the pictures!

There is 2 kinds of news in the world...

The good- & the bad

First off- the good news

My trainer took me to the vet yesterday to get a eye check up & a heart worm test (required by the school). The vet says my eyes look wonderfully and my trainer can slowly take me off of the eye cream!! We also found out the heart worm test was negative!! (not like my trainer was worried or anything).

And now for the bad news
Guess what my trainer is writing up on her computer??? The abbreviation for it might be "P.S.I" Those are the 3 words that describe bad news- (1) "Puppy", (2) "sitter", (3) "information"- puppy sitter information!?!
She then told me that I will be going "away" this weekend- this will be my 3rd time this year getting "puppy sat". Can she not just take me with her??

But of course I already tried that... the only reason why she can't take me with her is because she is doing "goat showing" this weekend at the state fair, though both her last dogs "Frankie" & "Brax" were able to go. It is not fair! I am told that it was way to much with Frankie & Brax- and now that she has twice as many goats to show I would have been tied up the whole time.

I will be leaving to my "new home" on Thursday night (after puppy class) and coming back sometime on Monday- the following week.
Wish me luck!!

(my trainer took some pictures of me @ the vet- I was trying to drag myself out of the room in some of them-vets are not my favorite place!)

Puppy class- Sat 17th

I had a fun puppy class Saturday afternoon. We even had a trainer from SEGDI in FL leading the meeting!(who even took time off her vacation to come to our meeting).
She gave many good tips & suggestions.

We worked on recalls (come & heel), stays, & many other things- our trainers even had us walk on a flat crate!

Enjoy the pictures!! (my trainer is the one wearing a pink & green shirt)- and the cute little black puppy is not in our group- but her trainer comes to our meeting once in a while, isn't she so-o-o cute!!

Random pic & eye update

*Update: Eyes*

My eyes are looking much better, my trainer has had to go back to the vet to get me a refill of eye drops- but came back with "cream" to put in them instead! I might be going to the vet in 3-4 days or so for a check up on my eyes.

Here are some random pictures my trainer has taken of me over the course of a month or so. (you may have seen a couple of them in one of the slide shows I made)
