Laz at elementary school

I got to go to a local elementary school yesterday to talk about working dogs and how dogs and other pets can be trained to assist in a number of different therapy settings. I loved it! I got to show off a lot of my tricks, I got to meet about 20 2nd graders, and Mom made stickers of me that I got to paw (hand) out to my new friends. This picture shows me and my parents posing for a picture during our presentation!

Your pal,

Our trip to West Texas

Over Labor Day weekend, the pack (minus Pickles because she did not have a rattlesnake vaccine) went on a trip to West Texas. We stayed at a part of the ranch that Julie helps to manage. I had so much fun running around, sniffing things, chasing things, and flushing game. On our first morning walk, I flushed a wild turkey! It was so large that its short flight was noisy and awkward. Over the three days we were there, I flushed another turkey, some deer, and I headed off a javelina who seemed to be up to no good. To keep an eye on me, Dad and Mom put a orange scarf on me. I had such a wonderful time. These pictures were taken during one of our hikes!
