Happy Graduation

IMG_2768A year after he first started Basic Obedience Training, Dasher graduated with his second class last night. He took top honors in the night’s games in two areas: Longest Stay (only the remote control squirrel broke him!) and Fastest Recall. I’m very proud of him, and yes, he looks adorable in his graduation cap (which was provided for pictures by PetSmart, where he took the class).

Wait, did I say it took him over a year and two different classes to graduate a six-week class? I did. In between starting one class and finishing the second, he had 2 surgeries, had to start medications to control seizures, undergo months of surgery recoveries, and finally, take physical therapy to regain muscle mass and tone. This dog is not only cute, he’s a survivor.
