Happly 4th of July everyone! You know what happened on this very important date in American history? That’s right, a year ago my brothers and sisters and I all turned one month old! It would only be two more weeks before I met David and Amy for the first time and then only one more week before they brought me home. I guess the 4th is also associated with something called Independence Day? I don’t really know what that means except that a lot of people leave home and go on vacation; people like Amy’s family, they all went to the beach and left their dog, Koko, behind. Amy brought him over on Saturday and he’s been here ever since. It’s been pretty fun having him over, we play and run around the house chasing one another. Amy thinks he’s a little chunky so he’s been going on our long walks. After an hour long walk today we both collapsed on the floor and napped.
Keep in mind that I also had played fetch and frisbee for about 45 minutes this morning, I have way more fur than Koko does, AND it was like 100 degrees outside, so that’s why I’m so tired. Amy’s family returns from the beach on Wednesday so Koko will be here for a few more days.
Hmmmm…what else has happened this holiday weekend? Oh, I played a little with Rusty and Kibbles. Koko met Kibbles for a few minutes but they didn’t like each other too much. Koko doesn’t have doggie friends like I do so he’s not really used to being around other dogs.
Speaking of doggie friends, I made a new friend in obedience class! For the first time I actually played with a dog before class started. His name is Barrett and he’s a Vizsla. Here he is with his owner participating in one of the doggie games we played in our last spring class.
Our new summer session started and bunch of new dogs joined our class including two Border Collie mixes! Barrett and I, along with a couple of other dogs are the only ones returning to Dog I. I think we’ll all be able to move up to Dog II in a few weeks.
