Sam is very spoiled and amazingly smart...We're also starting to compete in agility, and he got his level 1 and 2 certificates from C-WAGS nosework. We take 2 classes a week (agility and nosework), sometimes private lessons as I'd like him to start in protection sports, and on some weekends, when the weather is nice, we go lure coursing. I'm so proud of the boy Sam is and the well behaved boy he's become!...He never causes any problems and he loooves to travel with me! We just took a drive to Boston last month and he had the best time! I'm so glad I decided to keep him. (video of lure coursing and agility below). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZ64kulmFmU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQvMLOKtZEs
Just wanted to send an update on Huck Finn (or just Finn for short!). We adopted him about a month ago, and are confident it was the best decision we ever made! He has come to fit in so well with our family, and is definitely the dog we were meant to have. His personality keeps us laughing day in and day out, and has enough energy to keep us on our toes at all times, but also loves a good snuggle with his mom & dad at the end of the day. We are so grateful for Almost Home, and the awesome foster family that Finn was with before he came to us. Thank you for helping us find this awesome addition to our family!
We picked up Kubo in December, so we've had him for a little over two months now! He warmed up to our place very quickly. He loves being where we are, whether it's the bed, couch, or kitchen he's usually hanging out with us. He loves his weekly trips to the dog park where he runs nonstop with his friends! He's the friendliest doggy, as he wants to jump up and say hi to EVERYone when we go on our daily walk (we're working on the no jumping part). Although he's from Alabama, I think he was born a city dog because he loves our weekly adventures, like our walks to the lake! He sleeps with us every night and wakes us up if he has to go potty, no accidents with this guy! Our life has been a little brighter and a lot more fun with our Kubo
