I'm a Canine Good Citizen!
I did it! I passed my Canine Good Citizen test today. Here's a picture of me in my graduation cap.
The test was fun. I think that Mom was more nervous than me.
The teacher who gave me the test was very nice. She brushed my coat. She tickled my toes. She petted my head.
She asked Mom to walk around with me at her side. I sat. I came when Mom called. I laid down and stayed until she said that I could come to her.
The teacher banged a pot to see if I was afraid. She had Mom and me walk around a group of people. The teacher's husband took me away from Mom for three minutes. He was also very nice.
The hardest part of the test was when the teacher brought out her dog. His name is Eagle. The teacher walked Eagle by us. I wanted to touch noses with him but I just sat next to Mom. She was very happy with me and gave me LOTS of hugs and pets.
Now I am a Canine Good Citizen. I can go anywhere in the US and work in hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and all sorts of places. Mom ordered a jacket for me. I'll show it to you when it arrives.
It has been a VERY good day!
