Tough Times... Training with the SCDF / Another Trip Update!

Business has been rather slow this summer... and we have been rather lazy ourselves. Its one of those really rare times Pa manage to sneak up behind two Rottweilers while they are sleeping... We of course expected him like always to come up to the main gate. hence... we waited at the main entrance.
Ok... Bruno wasn't bothered about waiting at all. He was just snoozing away. I dun think he is a Rottie, more of a retriever.
Of course it wasn't all play with us... we manage to squeeze in a couple of good sessions with our pals that run and play hide and seek. We love that game! We always win! Yep, we have to run into and around debris. One thing is kinda scary though... Pa was wearing some soft sole shoes... and a nail punctured all the way through... Time for some proper boots.
The Equipment the SCDF uses are simply jus massive and uber fun to play with. We had a new mission to recognise people in cars as victims in need of help... We spotted them... but we jus haven't been able to identify them as victims. They are in a CAR! do we bark in people that looks like they are sleeping in cars from now on?
Bruno was darn gone tired but recovered when we went to the pool to wash all the muck and dirt from our bodies.
Remember Trip? Look at just how good looking he is now! Auntie Lillian has given Pa another update on him...


Here's another update on Trip. He's been doing well and growing fast! His demodex is 99.9% gone and his fur is almost all back too. I think he's about 4x the size he was when you last saw him.

He continues to be very well behaved. He's learned a bunch of commands like sit, stay, come (sometimes), touch, fetch (sometimes), paw and high-five. His leash walking is erratic but I'm working on it! He loves people and playing with other dogs. He especially loves playing with labs and goldens and he gets really roughed up as a result. He also has this really really low, manly bark - which I hear so rarely that when he does bark, I find it very amusing.

Here are a few photos!

This is from a little while back. Still looking puppy-fattish. With one of his pals, Cippi.
With Cippi again, one week ago. See the size difference now!
Trip has been a really good boy. I hope he visits soon! We miss him lots... and we still wanna bring him to the big ass field to run about!
