He Passed!

Well, Grady defied all odds and passed his final puppy class exam. I was a bit nervous when we got there and he went nuts playing with all of his friends for the last time. I didn’t think he could settle down.


But settle he did, and it only took him two tries to get “leave it” right… he ignored the treats on the ground. Phew.


More awesomeness.

Well, he's got "sit" down.

And at the end… he got a certificate and a new bandanna. The bandanna has his name on it and says he’s a Petco graduate!


I think the yellow works well with his eyes, no? He also left with a ton of toys that we bought him… and treats shaped like pumpkins and bats and ghosts. Halloween-obsessed, remember?

Puppy class was a good experience, not only because Grady listens and answers commands now, but also because we got to see four other puppies grow up over six weeks. Thanks, Jessica!
