Beautiful Summer Morning
Bradenton Puppy Raiser Meeting
The Bradenton Puppy Raiser Group met at the Ellenton Outlet Mall this morning. We started at a little after 9 a.m. so the stores were not yet open, the entire place was pretty much ours, and the temperatures were still comfortable.
|Miss T, our newest member, is conserving her energy by leaning against her Dad before the start of the meeting.|
It also allows me to see how well the pups that are sitting in the circle can do on a Sit and Stay, when they see a dog approaching and walking in front of them.
|Sweet Sophia, is demonstrating the relaxation technique of lying down and waiting patiently when Mom is standing quietly.|
|Kids and Puppies - they just go together.|
|"Sea a cow that does not graze" was one of the clues and it looks like Steven and Miss T have found the answer. A Manatee, of course.|
|A bonus clue was, "Neither basketball, tennis, nor law." I wonder if these two raisers and their pups will happen to look up? Not a basketball COURT, not a Tennis COURT, nor a COURT of law....but a FOOD COURT would work.|
Luke, a beautiful Golden Retriever puppy in training, is demonstrating a wonderful loose leash walk with Lis and his handler Melissa.
|And the winner is.....Leah with her raisers, Jeff and Linda. Since we had a three way tie at the end of the game, Leah won in an obedience playoff by holding her Down and Stay longer than the other two pups. Good Job, Leah, and CONGRATULATIONS!|
