March came and now March is marching on until next year. On the 24th I had my 6th birthday. Since I’m now of middle age, I thought I’d look back on some of the times I’ve had during those years.
Here I am looking over my new home.
Meetin’ the robot. I was just over a year old in these pictures.
Here I am learning to swim out and return with the bumper. My Human started in the water with me on a check cord.
When I came to live with my Humans I thought the name of the game was “keep away”!
Next is a picture of me with my foot ball.
Everything I put in my mouth had to be given to a Human on command.
Below I’m on the boat heading out.
Boating with the Humans was always lots of fun…almost as much as car rides.
Then when summer got hot at the shore I got to go off to the cooler mountains.
Here I am helping the Humans as I learn my way around the mountains.
I got to go lots of places when we were in the mountains.
We were always off hiking someplace. Soon certain places became my favorites.
Here I am loaded and ready to head off!
Papa getting’ me a drink of water from the dog fountain.
At the look out.
In the woods.
Enjoyin’ the view.
This was my first Christmas with the family. We spent it in the mountains.
Here I am playin’ in the snow that first Christmas.
Here I am enjoying a hike the spring after my second birthday.
Training was an ongoing project. It happened everyday as I earned more and more freedom. Play is always a big part of my training. Notice in this picture that I still have a check cord trailing behind me.
Even finding bumpers (notice one is still up on the statue) is fun!
Meetin’ an off leash stranger in a parking lot.
My third birthday. I’m enjoyin’ a mornin’ at the shore.
Enjoyin’ practicing a water retrieve.
Stop by tomorrow for some more “highlights of my life”.
Y’all come back now!
