I DID IT!!!!!

Hello Everyone! Guess what? I am officially a therapy dog now! WOO HOO>I did so good on the test! I charmed everyone there, did really well on all of the portions, and I even did a good job of leaving the french fries alone for the "leave-it" portion! I am really happy, because now I'll be able to visit at the hospital. Mom's super excited, too. Well, I'll bark to you all later!

Hello Everyone! Hope all is well on your side of the fence. Things are going pretty good with me. Mom is doing pretty well, although she's stayed home from school a couple times this week because of her headaches, so I've been busy keeping her company. I have been studying hard for my upcoming test on Sunday. It was supposed to be last Saterday but it was cancelled due to the torrential downpour at the time. We even drove all the way to Lansing just to turn around! Oh well. I have already passed this test, but this time it will be a little different. It is called the Canine Good Citizen test, which I passed last winter, but now if I passed I'll be able to be an official therapy dog. I have to pass so that I can start visiting Crittenton Hospital again and possibly other places as well. I am really good at making people feel better so I know this will be a good job for me. Hopefully I pass! I have also been working really hard to learn some service dog tasks so I can help me grandma. Right now I am learning how to retrieve things. I am getting really good at it! I can already give my leash back to my mom when she drops it, pick up pens and pencils, clothes, coins, anything, really. Mom says she'll even teach me to help out with the laundry! I don't know what that means, but it sounds pretty special! I am making quick progress and will soon progress to picking up paper. I have to learn not to tear it, which is difficult when you have teeth! Well, I'll bark to you all later.Enjoy all the pictures!

I have the BEST smile!

Something must have been interesting...
Sometimes I'm serious, too... Not very often, though :)

Yeah, tummy time!
This is me, wishing I could go in the water :)

Pictures, Pictures, and More Pictures.....

Hello Everyone! Mom is still at it with the picture taking! Sheesh, you'd think she'd give it a rest! Apparently I am just too cute to not get photographed every waking (and sleeping) moment! So, not much is new since I last posted. I have my therapy dog test on Saturday, so mom and I have been working extra hard to prepare me so I can pass. She's been really busy with school, homework, and band. She is also preparing her college essays, which is taking some serious time out of my walk schedule, but I guess we all have to make sacrifices every now and then. Well, I best be off. Bark to you all later!

GOT IT! I love playing catch!
Mmmmm.... Nylabone.....

My, I'm most dashing
I am good at working the pouty face. I can get anything with such great pouty lips...
I love walks!
Even upside-down smiles are cute (:
What can I say, I am a love bug!

Mom Got a New Camera... Guess What That Means......

Hey Everyone! It's been a LONG time since I updated on here. My mom has been super busy this summer, and she is my typest so my blog had to wait. So the summer was very good. I spent a lot of it at my grampa's house, playing with my brother Bentley. My mom's 17th birthday was on August 29 and she got a REALLY nice camera from our PAWS friends. I am happy for her, sure, but I have had that thing shoved in my face every day since then! Oh well, guess it could be worse! Her school started today, so now I go to grampa's in the mornings to hang out while she's learning about various things. I don't mind, but we get up EARLY! Today we got up at 6:15, and tomorrow we have to get up at 5:15 so she can go to band practice! WOAH! I was still half asleep when we left! Well, I gotta run. Enjoy this rediculous amount of new pictures, all taken with her new camera. Bark to you later,
Aren't I just the handsomest? I am growing up!
Ready. Set. Catch!
I am full of smiles!
Mama loves this picture. I am pretty fond of it, too!
Soooo handsome!
Looking at the pond....
Portrait! Mom likes this picture so much she thinks she'll use it on my therapy dog I.D. card!

I am rather dashing, no?
Mom has gotten a little happy about that camera... Sheesh.
Watching over Sean, my mom's nephew. I am such a good boy...
Smile for the camera!
When I was about 9 weeks old my mom took a picture of me just like this and we are revisting it now in older form.

Catch me if you can!
Me and Bentley, my brother, wrestling. He is huge, but I have the speed advantage.
Grinning :)

Intense looks..... Wonder what I was looking at.....
Haha... This is a silly picture....
Aww, I sure am cute!
Smile If there is one thing people can learn from us dogs it's to learn to love life!
