Alex saw his first horse, colt and mule today. He didn't pay much attention to the colt and mare at first, too busy running with three other dogs he had just met. He did take a few moments out to sniff the colt's butt through the fence. Go figure - he is a dog. Later, he tried to say hello to the mule, then barked at "Gracie" when she refused to react the way he wanted. This was not the best thing. He started to spook Gracie a bit, but eventually we got them both back where they belong. ;-) Next time we will make sure to have a long line on Alex to keep him away from the back end! I am just glad that little "Blue" did not take him down to the green pond!!

Sunday, Alex is on the lookout. Any second, his buddies Gregor and Finn will be seen on the sidewalk just to the right of his ear, two houses over. He just KNOWS!

18 MONTHS OLD! Alex has finally reached the year and a half mark. He is gorgeous and fun as ever as he enters his teenage years. He still plays with the cat - daily/hourly/ceaselessly. Some things I doubt he will ever outgrow!

He retook the CGC exam a couple weeks ago at Queen City Dog Training Club. He passed, but the distractions were high - there was a golden doing frolicing comes in the next ring. Oh, how he wanted to play! Walking past the "crowd" or meeting the friendly dog were nothing compared to that!
