I went on an exciting trip to Philadelphia this past Feb. I took the train with my puppy raiser and I have to admit I found it kind of scary. At first I didn’t want to get on the train-that gap is worrisome! But with much encouragement I made it on. The trip up was easy; I just squeezed into my space and went to sleep. When we arrived in Philadelphia we had to take a taxi to the art museum. I didn’t like that too much because there was very little room on the floor for me to sit, I weigh 70 lbs. now, but I was a good boy and just sat there quietly for the short drive.
At the museum we met up with my puppy raiser’s parents and then we went into the Van Gough exhibit. There were a lot of beautiful paintings on the wall and there was a hushed silence in the galleries which I interrupted once in awhile with my loud yawns. But mostly I was very good. I liked the museum store because a lot of people came up to pet me and tell how well behaved I am. I like that. I was also well behaved in the fancy restaurant we went to for lunch. By the time I got off of the train in Baltimore I didn’t mind the gap at all. It was a big day for me but my puppy raiser told me I did a really good job.
I have now graduated from level 1 to level 2 in training class so I am learning lots of new things like healing and sitting in a stay position for 15 seconds. It’s hard work but I love to see the other dogs in class.
