Introducing: OBAY ONE STEP BEYOND "Vinnie"
Vinnie went to his new home on Friday. He was such a little character; a typical singleton puppy with a temper to match. Spoiled maybe? ha!
He spent a few days with Dennis at work while I was at the EO. Vinnie got lots of exposure in the office meeting people and getting used to new surroundings. Then Dennis took him along with the other dogs in the caravan to the UKA show. There he spent a few days learning to sleep in his crate alone and how to act in the caravan garden. I could not believe how much he changed in the few days I was gone. He turned into a proper puppy with attitude. I spent the last few days teaching him clicker tricks such as spin right, continued his shake paw and sit as well as increasing his tuggy playtimes.
Right before I left for the EO we had Johanna come visit for 2 days. She was over for a heelwork to music/freestyle competition and she also came to pick up Luna. How convenient for me! She spend two days getting to know Vinnie and used her sooper- dooper chicken clicker skills to teach him shake paw. When I left for the EO on Thursday morning Johanna convinced Dennis that the two of them could get a photo of Luna and Vinnie together. I think they were a little too ambitious and did not know the extent of the Vinnie personality!
Luna is a gorgeous girl even post puppy!
But you may wonder why Luna looks so miserable next to her angelic son?
Here is why....
Yet Vinnie knows to who to avoid! (Zaz)
And who to love! (Itzy)
So all is quiet now at the OBay camp. No puppies for another year and Luna gets to play "show dog" with Johanna in Denmark. I cannot wait to hear about Luna's adventures this year and know that she will shine. Vinnie has gone to an agilty home and I will get to see him at the shows. We wish Lyn the best of luck with Vinnie and hope that he is everything she hoped for and more.
