Odin Sept 2015 photo 1 smlOdin enjoyed several bus and SkyTrain trips this month.  He boarded the bus and SkyTrain with ease and after just a little manoeuvering and a treat (of course), Odin was happy to settle near my feet and out of the passenger traffic in the aisles. Several passengers learned about PADS as we crossed the three zones in Vancouver and bussed on to
the Sunshine Coast.

Odin Sept 2015 photo 2 smlAnother event that was memorable In September was our trip to Port Alberni which took in the Alberni Fall Fair and Parade.  Odin spent several evenings in the fair’s petting zoo area getting familiar with the farm animals.  He found the Texas long-horned steer a little intimidating but he did get used to the llamas, the donkeys and the chickens.  The fall fair picture is of Odin sitting beside the longest cucumber that we have ever seen – a prize winner for sure!   While in Port Alberni he also met with his favourite pal, Jet, for two refreshing morning playdates at the Christmas Tree farm.  Thanks Jet!!!

At 20 months Odin is spending lots of time practicing obedience with distraction and fluency training.  This is challenging work for Odin and some days are great.  “Practice makes perfect” is our motto so we’ll
keep on practicing. 🙂
