Mom to rescue Murphy

I don't know if this is the right forum, since it's such a baby step...but Murphy graduated from Level I Obedience! We're so proud of him, since when we rescued him he had no idea how to walk on a leash, ask to potty outside, etc. (He'd only ever been tied outside.)

He got the label "Class Clown" for a variety of reasons. In a downstay, he would be happily looking around and panting and would just roll right over and turn his belly up. He would occasionally wander over to another owner to ask for love. And when we tried out agility equipment, he lay down in the middle of the long tunnel to rest. What can I say? He's laid back!

We started Level II tonight. At the end of it, he can take his CGC test.

Here he is contemplating his bright future! One word...plastics.

Congratulations on the achievement! Somehow golden males always seem to win the "class clown" award. (But that is why we love them so) I'm sure Murphy will get his CGC with no problems.

Congratulations to you and Murphy on completing Level I. He looks like it took alot out of him. Thank you for the pictue and thank you giving Murphy his forever home and putting him to work. I hope I'm not the only one who got the "plastics" comment. We are showing our age if we are the only ones that remember it :doh:

Big congratulations coming to you and Murphy :)

It is not a baby step but something to be really proud of .. I have a rehomed girl who recently graduated Basic Obedience 101 and I rank this achievement right up there with my other boys titles .. it is really great to see our 2nd chance dogs getting their right to shine and learn (Towhee is referred to as the wild woman in class LOL)

And I did not understand the reference to plastic either ..

Haha! This made me laugh because it is SO true! :doh:

More class clown stories

Glad to hear that many Goldens are class clowns. Our goofy 8 month old guy is doing Canine Good Neighbour classes ... and every time we let him off leash he has to visit every other dog and owner before coming back to do whatever exercise he was supposed to do 5 minutes before ! But he's so sweet and funny we can't get mad ... besides everybody else is laughing and he wouldn't 'get it' anyway !http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
