Richmond Dog Show and Nanuq
Hi, this is Nanuq! Don't tell Sitka, but I took over his blog again, today. I did not have a picture from yesterday. I found this old picture of me at therapy in moms photos and decided to use it. I am getting quite old and my joints are full of arthritis, but when duty called, I went.
Yesterday, I went to the dog show in Richmond, Virginia. I had a job to do. I was there as the test dog for the Canine Good Citizenship Test. There were lots of young whipper snappers who wanted to be certified. Some of them were ready and some still need more obedience training. It was a long 3 hours of work for me, but well worth it. One of the furry kids was handled by a human 12 year old little boy. The furry guy and his young owner plan to do therapy as community service. Mom and I are thankful GOD is raising up a new group of youngsters, both human and canine to carry on the good work GOD called us to do.
Dad bought me some yummy organic sweet potato treats as a reward. He knew it was tough on my joints. I normally spend most of my day on a doggie orthopedic bed by Dad's chair. Yum..Yum! I love rewards!
