Last month with Tandy boy!

We are enjoying our last month here with Tandy. Still continuing on with daily training. But mostly loving him and taking him on really long walks, enjoying our last days with a dog in the house.

Last week we took a trip to the kennel at NSD where he will be going back for advanced training. We met all his kennel mates that he will be living with and learned about his new routine there. He got to explore his new sleeping area and play in the run with the others, Tandy is the youngest one to go back, but just as ready as the rest of them. He is still exceptional in training and with real trainers taking him in and helping him he will go even further.

We are not going to get another puppy any time soon, we have a big move coming up and once that is all done we will see how life really is without a dog in it. We may do it again or we may just puppy sit for other NSD dogs, but that is not for a while. No decisions being made now.

I have no idea what the day will be like that we bring him back but will for sure blog about it as part of the project, i want to remember that too. Until then, we are taking lots of photos, hugging him lots and treating him like the king he is!


  1. Wow, only 1 month? Time seems to pass very quickly!
    Make sure to snap as many pictures as you can - I always take double the pictures in the last couple months :) I think my computer is a little full though. Turning them in is so hard, but I know he'll do great.

    Rudy wants me to let you know that his Holiday contest/giveaway is going on NOW and he'd really like you to enter; go to, for rules. (All you have to do is write a very short poem themed on pets/Holiday) - Rudy's trying to get a good amount of entries; and he really needs your help!

  2. Wow I can't believe its already time for him to go back! We're in the same boat with Pompei leaving us in about a month as well! He looks so mature!
