Spring Break

Spring Break is finally here! The last few weeks have been pretty hectic, but I am happy to be able to post up some new stuff.

We had a meeting today at Spruce Creek's Firehouse Dept. Usually, we arrive at every meeting early,or on time and know where we are going. But this time we ended up at Spruce Creek's Nature Preserve. We ended up having to backtrack and then loop around in order to get onto the right street. We managed to arrive right at 9:30 A.M.but feeling rushed .

But that isn't really the main story. When some of our group members saw Beau, they were amazed of how beau-tiful( get it) he is. We also have Beau's brother, Sammy, in our group, so we let the two socialize with each other, you can tell they are brothers.

Quick note here. Beau and Newman love to play with each other. We have to let Beau get a little bigger before they can play together in the back yard , because we are worried Newman might accidentally fall on Beau or hurt him. But it is a clear sign they will get along well in the future.

Our group walked over to the fire department to let them hear some loud sounds and even meet one of the firefighters in full gear, since some dogs are afraid or unsure what to do when they see a firefighter or anyone in a strange getup. Newman seemed to like the firefighter and almost jumped on him. This is a good sign that Newman is not afraid of most things. Some dogs can wash out if they are afraid of certain things to the point where they can't perform.

Beau also strolled ahead to meet the firefighter. He was intrigued by the firefighter and had a curious look on his face. 

After this we did a quick group picture then took a walk practicing commands like left left, forward, straight, and others.  The small pups did the same at the playground.
