April was a busy month for me. I went to crew regattas every weekend which I really enjoy because the girls on the team really love me. Sometimes I take a nap with them in their tent, it’s a long day by the river. My puppy raiser has two daughters who row, one in high school and the other at the Naval Academy. So we often went to two regattas a weekend. Some of these regattas are far away so I get to ride in the back of the car then which is fun since I usually sit on the floor of the passenger seat and sitting in the back is a whole new outlook.
My training is getting challenging but I am totally up for it. I love going to class once a week to learn new things. Now I am learning to come and sit on my puppy raiser’s left side when she calls me to “heal” and sit on her right side when she calls me to “side”. I just started learning this but I already have the idea. I get a treat when I do it right. I love Salmon jerky the best.
I weigh 80 pounds now so I really look grown up. People tell me I look handsome all the time. My puppy raiser says I look like my Dad, Cotton. He weighs 100 pounds so maybe I will grow up to weigh as much as he does. He is a Deputy Sheriff in Cleveland.
Well, I have to go now it is time for my country walk. I take a walk in the city in the mornings and a country walk in the afternoons. We walk through woods and meadows and I get to take a swim in the pond which I love to do.
