Bailey graduated from puppy class tonight!
We've been going to puppy class for the last 6 weeks, and tonight was graduation.

He had to get up in front of the whole class and demonstrate sit, stand up, lie down, watch me, leave it, off, heel, wait, and come. He also had to demonstrate that he could be good when having his ears, teeth, and feet examined.

He was a little eager on "wait," and "heel" only happened with the help of a VERY short leash, but on everything else he passed with flying colors!

I'm so proud of my little guy!!!!!

27. Sweetheart, I know you love the critter.
You're far better than me. I'd have hurt something.

17. They did get a nice mortarboard with tassle
But he rolled on the ground tying to get it off so I removed it to safety.

18. He's a springer mix
Supposedly mixed with golden, but he looks like a very boxy springer.

20. There was a purebred springer at puppy class
And he wsa a lot smaller and more delicate looking.

Bailey is more rugged looking than a pure springer.

24. There are many, many reasons why
I prefer kitties. Eating boots in the garage is just one of them.
