Luka, the graduate

We passed! We passed! We made it through puppy school! Without ever having to sit in the corner with the dunce cap!

Tonight was our last night of puppy class and we had our big test, every pup got a bully stick for passing with flying colors, got a silly graduation hat, and then had their pic taken. What fun!

We'll be going back in another month or so to start the intermediate class and until then I think we'll have some practicing to do. We really enjoyed the experience and I can't say enough good things about the program at PetSmart. I'm not so nuts about other things they do, but this was worthwhile and fun.

I'm sure
Luka will miss the doggy friends he made (especially Whiskey), but hopefully some of his classmates will be in the next level. The opportunity for them all to socialize and play in a safe environment was the most important aspect of the class, I think.

This last is a pic of all of us - just five dogs, but lots of people! Really, it was great to see the kids working just as hard as their pups.

Hurray Luka!! He sure is growing big fast. He's changed since your last post about him. He's growing into a fine, handsome doggie.

Oh this post made me smile--love that Luka in his graduation cap! And the people and pups graduation photo is too funny--the pups all squirming to get away.

I noticed the same thing. All the puppies are moving! Are you sure they graduated? LOL!

Yay, Luka!

Congratulations to you both! You'll probably miss going to class but the intermediate class gives you something to look forward to. I always enjoyed obedience school.
