Riley Graduates!

At least there is no graduation gown!
By the grace of goodness, Sir Riley of Carmichael completed Puppy Education at our local Petsmart.

How long do I have to wear this?

This course was 8-weeks long and probably a good thing.  Petsmart just changed their classes to be 6 weeks.  Riley was a stubborn little dear and didn’t sit until week 6!  (Might have been 5–but not by much!)
He started off at 4 pounds and 4 ounces…now is at 6 pounds and 7 ounces–already bigger than Roxie, my Cairn Terrier.
A few moments from class…
First Class… 
Don’t tell her dog, she’s lovin’ on Riley!

Shared this pic and the last one in a previous blog of his, but seems appropriate to revisit! 

Will sit for treats–FINALLY!
I really had forgotten how much work and love a puppy brings into your home.  Lucky to have this cute little one.  Intermediate Class starts next week.  Roxie who is 8 will also be attending.  Hoping they both will work for treats and graduate after 6 sessions!
My favorite Riley pic–not in the Dog House, but in the Cat Tower.  Yes, he still plays with cat toys too…

Yes, I did get in here by myself!

Certain there will be more tales to tell and share:)
