Tyler Making the Grade!

Our 5 year old black and tan Dachshund Tyler has been doing great at pre-agility school. He's learned how to run figure eights between obstacles, weave back and forth with poles in a straight line, come when called, stay if I drop a treat and wait until I tell him to pick it up, and more. He's come a long way!  
  He always goes to school in his yellow shirt that has a dog's face on it- and the shirt says "Drool is Cool!" 
   He loves school, and at the end of the hour, he's usually exhausted and collapses in the car ride home. 
    If only Daddy Rob would be a little more coordinated with "front crosses" and directions, Tyler would ace everything. However, Daddy Rob needs more work! :)

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
