Puppy Class

Stout attended his second week of Puppy Class at Best Friends Obedience. In a sea of Doodles, he sure stands out!

John got to work on some loosh leash walking with him as well:  (I wish I hadn't filmed it sideways...)

And John even got Stout to relax during the exercises! Well, I assume Stout was relaxed. John said to me "I'm pretty sure he just farted on me." Sure enough, he was right! Stinky!

A Stout a Day: Catch-up Edition


"Hanging with my fox-tapuss at the hotel!"

"Chilling with my brother at my first agility trial"

"Watching all the fast dogs out there on the course"

"Stealing my brother's ribbon!"

First Kong!

Kind of like feeding a little baby goat...

More photos coming tomorrow, after we get home from puppy class!

First vet visit for Stout

Stout was a rockstar at his first vet visit on Friday! He received his 2nd set of shots and got a basic puppy exam. Porter came along for support :)

Just ignore the bewildered look in the photo!

More Introductions!

Now that I've introduced the 2 stars, I'll introduce the rest of the family!

Zero - the old cranky stripey cat

And Squeaker - the slightly younger, yet perpetual kitten

Welcome to our blog!

I am fairly new to this whole blogging thing, so my posts will be short & sweet until I get the hang of it!

I do have a blog that I started for Porter a loooong time ago & only recently started updating again. I discovered the Blogger App on the iPod Touch & thought I would give it a shot again. His blog is: http://porterthecorgi.blogspot.com/

Porter also has his own YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/?merinda76

So we'll see if I can stick with it this time...  :)
