Last Friday we attempted a trip to the drugstore with Tandy. Our first public outing, dawning the purple coat we bravely entered the drugstore, walked in excitedly toward the back of the store and did a few focus and sit commands, walked to the cash chatted a minute with the cashier and out we went! It was as hectic as i thought it would be. I have to do it more and more now to get him used to it, hopefully he will be less excited every time! He is a strong guy! But i am stronger and i am his leader so he has to do what i say!

We drove to training class again tonight, the picture with the two pups is Tandy and Tawny his sister, they ride to class together, it is quite difficult to capture a good picutre of puppies!

The other pictures above were taken by Kale 8 years old, i thought they were pretty good, captured Tandy in his home here with us! He looks so wise in the closeup...well i think so!
