Cracker Jack / Jake
Cracker Jack, now Jake, who got adopted in October 2015, is doing well in his home. Since January, Jake has been training in the sport of canine nose work. He passed his odor recognition test (ORT) in all three scents in May. Last weekend, he competed in the National Association of Canine Scent Work trial in Burlington, Wisconsin. Of the 45 dogs participating, only 20 earned titles - successfully completing all four hides - and Jake was one of them. Way to go, Jake!
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!
