Canine Good Citizen

I passed my Canine Good Citizen test today! I've done a similar test before for Therapy Dog work, but needed an updated one. My mom was worried I wouldn't pass because I was stubborn on doing my "down," but I did it and all was well.

From the Los Angeles Times on August 19, 2004:

"The Los Angeles City Council, looking to give dogs a boost in their standard of living, voted Wednesday to draft an ordinance that would set strict standards for doghouses and outlaw the practice of permanently chaining the animals in yards."

A Sunday Outing

I got to go on an outing today with my mom and dad. We went to Venice Beach, walked on the boardwalk, and shopped for cheap sunglasses (for them, not me!) There were so many people and dogs! My mom carried me part of the way because it was very crowded and she was worried I would get stepped on, rolled on, or bicycled on! There were so many good smells between all of the food stands and the ocean.

After our walk, we stopped so my mom and dad could get some dinner. I got some doggie treats while they ate and met some more dogs. Here's a photo of me hanging out while they were getting some food:

Little Guy and Cosette had to stay home, but they each got nice walks after we got home.

Hey Mr. Meter Man!

Oops! My mom forgot to mention to my dad that the meter reader was coming today. Also, she forgot to close the dog door. So, my dad woke up to find me and Little Guy barking our heads off at the Meter Man in the back yard. Luckily, we are pretty nice and don't bite, but I don't think the guy was too happy. He probably laughed at Little Guy's yappy bark!

I'm off to try to stay cool. It truly is the "Dog Days of Summer," as they say.
