The summer heat has made training outside a little difficult so we practice inside most of the time so us black dogs can stay cool. This month the raisers to Anna and me to visit the short one’s raisers in Nanaimo. It was super fun, we got to ride in the car (I like this but I think Anna gets a little car sick), take a big ferry boat and visit a whole bunch of new places. I also got to meet a bunch of my extended family including my cousin Eli, who gives the best cuddles.
Unfortunately, I think I partied too hard on this vacation and had a bit of a sore leg. My raisers took me to the Burquitlam Animal Hospital where they poked and prodded me all over. I had to take some medicine for a week and my raisers are limiting my activity while I heal up.
