Dog Fest Walk 'N Roll is finally here! We're hoping the rain holds off for our fun walk! Tonight we went back to the park to do some final touches and to change the layout of our event. It's going to be great and our stage is now under a covered area.
We love Johnson-Springview Park! They have a GREAT dog park, just for service dogs and puppies in training. 

There was a beautiful sunset tonight at the park. 

We went to check out the new layout.

Thursday Night Football

We're a football family...49ers fans, but I also cheer for players that we meet at the Celebrity Golf tournament at Lake Tahoe. Last night we had to cheer on Britton Colquitt and the Broncos! 

We also recreated this photo with Grammy last night! So cute and amazing what 10 months will do!

Happy 1st Birthday Battier!!

Battier had an awesome 1st Birthday today! We had a puppy party on the tennis court with some of her dog friends. They played for a little over an hour and had homemade Frosty Paws! I blended yogurt, peanut butter and carrots together and added a carrot sprinkle to the top! The dogs LOVED them. Good news for Battier and Shawn is I have left overs for tomorrow.

The 15th of the month pose.

CCI demo for Girl Scouts

Tonight we had fun doing a demo on Canine Companions for Independence for a local Girl Scout troop! Nancy with Service Dog Becky and John with Hearing Dog Courtney joined us for the presentation! It was awesome. The girls asked a lot of great questions and definitely enjoyed our visit.  Becky is 11 years old and will be retiring soon. Courtney is 5 years old. 

Becky meeting a new friend. 

Picking up a banana and not poking a hole in it! CCI dogs are taught how to hold things gently. 

John and Courtney demonstrating Hearing Dog work. John brought a door bell, timer and he dropped some items that Courtney alerted to. 

Battier getting some love after the demo.
