Happy Holidays

We were trying to get our Expert Trick Dog title by the end of the year but we haven't been practicing new tricks. At least this year I made a fun holiday video with my mom! That ear flapping stuffed dog was very distracting!!

What have we been up to?

We had a very eventful week last week. Over the weekend Mom took me to take my TT test and they said I passed! It wasn't very difficult. There were some loud noises, people that wanted to say hello, weird things to walk over, and a loud man yelling. Mom said it was easier than walking me in New York City.
Then Mom took me to my first agility trial. We practiced all week at different people's houses so that I would get used to doing my agility in new places. (And not searching for places to pee on which I like to do VERY much.) When we ran the course at the trial I had a hard time doing "off side" weave poles but on my final try I got it! So we had what they call a Q! Mom was very happy and I had fun rolling around on the grass afterward. Feels good on my back!
Here is what we look like doing agility in practice.

We do silly things after work...

Mom and I always do some training or exercise after she gets off of work. I "offered" this behavior without mom asking me to. She thought it was fun so we filmed it the next day. Can you balance on small things like me?

Summer is over....

I was very busy this summer with joining the Hudson Valley Howlers Dog Scout troop. I had a lot of fun doing activities with my troop buddies. Here are a few pictures from our kayaking outing! Mom says that I need more practice staying still in the kayak but we were able to paddle out and around. It was fun!
I also passed my Dog Scout title test so now I have a new title to add to my list! I also get to wear this bandana at events to show that I passed! I even have a photo ID card. Fun fun.
I've also been practicing new tricks like this handstand. One day maybe I can walk on my two front paws!
Our goal for the end of the year is to get my Advanced Trick Dog title and to earn a backpacking badge from Dog Scouts. Think we can get it done?

I'm a Dog Scout...almost!

My mom and I joined the Dog Scouts of America! We are a part of the Hudson Valley Howlers troop. We went geocaching with our group recently and had a blast. I had to wear a back pack for parts of it to qualify for getting my very first badge!
This is us at our cache site. We hid our own and left some of my trading cards as swag for people to find.
We met a lot of nice people and their dogs and we are excited to go on our next group activity, kayaking! We are also working on getting me my Dog Scout title which is similar to getting a CGC but slightly different and mom says a little harder.
