Thank you so much! We are pretty worried, but fingers crossed, all will go well!

Time for a bit of an update. Part of what Cache has been up to is posted here: https://www.goldenretrieverforum.com...dissecans.html (Our journey with OCD (Osteochondritis Dissecans)), but that is not all there is! After a successful recovery from his surgery Cache has made a new best friend! https://www.goldenretrieverforum.com...ml#post7720082 (Would you..) Not so much a 'new' best friend, but he managed to convince his big brother who wasn't quite sure he wanted to be friends that 'Hey, this can be fun, if we can give it a shot!

Cache has also had a birthday, April 4, a whole year old already. We have also taken the opportunity to try out 'Brain Games' classes, six weeks of a lot of fun! Cache learned to offer 'left and right' paws on cue, to 'dance' - pivot left and right and eventually into a full circle - great for hind end awareness and to keep those muscles in shape. He learned to target different objects with his nose, and his paws to push a ball across the room with his nose. He learned 'paws up' and to 'sit up' - good for strengthening the core muscles. We introduced him to a skate board, he seemed to think it was pretty cool - 'Hey look! it moves!' He loves to learn, especially when he can use his brain as we play with shaping behaviors and putting them on cue, it is pretty interesting what he can come up with, what he is willing to offer!

We have him signed up for outdoor classes, honing his skills in different locations with other dogs and people around, as well as 'off leash' (long line for safety) recall and other skills. With the weather warming, and the snow gone (hopefully) am looking forward to getting the agility equipment out and see how it goes with that. I have no doubt he is going to love it!

It has been fascinating and a lot of fun 'staying ahead' of him, he learns so fast, his mind is brilliant and he simply can't 'get enough' of learning new skills and tricks, he is so easy to teach! Not much he won't do for a treat, some praise or a chance to play ball or with a squeaky toy.

Happy 1st Birthday to Cache, he's a handsome boy.
Wonderful update, enjoyed hearing about all the fun things he's been up and the upcoming classes sound like a lot of fun too.
