Beau Graduates ... again

Beau graduated from Obedience Training last weekend, although he did play up a little bit with the "drop" command and wouldn't stay laying on the ground. The trainer thinks it was due to the incredibly windy day as a few of the dogs were acting up as well.

He did great overall and actually listens to me much better than he did before we went to training.

Here's a few shots of Beau strutting his stuff ... he's so gorgeous:

Beau and me at the back when I finally got him to drop!

Ferg taking over the reigns ... Beau doing good with his "Stationing" (staying on his bed).

Beau with Ferg weaving in and out of the other dogs, without straying from the task at hand.

Beau in our shadow ... it's nearly all over and Beau has his sights on meeting a Bordie Collie, who he had lots of fun playing with after the session.

My beautiful Beau and me ... I never thought I could love a pet so much.

"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi-human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog."
