Pet Therapy Visit

I had to test and then do the first evaluation on a dog for Pet Therapy yesterday so I took Wes along and let him make a visit after the other dog's evaluation. He loves to go to the nursing home and meet everyone. He is so calm and gentle and is always ready with a little kiss for those who want it. Everyone thought he was quite dashing wearing a collar that looks like a tuxedo bow tie. I think he is ready to go through his therapy dog evaluations so I'll be setting that up in the coming weeks. I had to wait until he was a year old to start the evaluation process even though he has been visiting the nursing home since he was a puppy.

Catching Up

I have been so busy that I have completely neglected this blog. Wesley celebrated his first birthday on March 17th. He earned his CGC a few days before.

Yesterday we showed at the Old Dominion Kennel Club and Wesley was BOW for his first point. Award winning photographer Linda Davis kindly shared this gorgeous photo she took of Wes gaiting.

Today he was BOW again at Baltimore County Kennel Club for a major. He showed really well and I got tons of compliments on him. I am thrilled with how well he is maturing. Of course, he thinks the best thing about dog shows is all of the people who pet him.
