The Chronicles of Louis the IIV Rottweiler

 The Graduate

The night we brought Louie home we stopped at Pet Smart and signed him up for obedience class.  Even from the short time we knew him we knew he had the basics down and were able to get him in an intermediate class.  Well, yesterday was graduation day!

What started out as a class of four ended as a class of two.  Here is Louie's fellow student, Sweet Sissy paying strict attention in class.
She is just the cutest thing. Here she is practicing her down-stay.
Froggy style!  Louie shows he can do a down-stay, too!
The students waiting with anticipation.
"Louie, do you think we passed, huh, huh, Louie, you listenin' to me?"
Sweet Sissy passed, much to her relief.  She is adorable as ever in her little cap.  And what about Louie....
He passes with flying colors. " Ladies, I'm not only handsome, I got me some smarts too!"
"What do you think of this pose? I call it ' Brown Steel',  BOL,  move over Zoolander!"

Now that Louie has passed, he plans to pursue a higher education, going for his Advanced degree, CGC and hopefully, Therapy Dog certification.  Louie has a great future and is going places................
Well, he'll go those places later, right now he's going to take a nap!

  4. Looks like blogville just got some competition for handsomest doggie. The ladies are so going to dig you in your graduation outfit.

    Hey! Semi-private lessons rock. You get just enough attention without too much and no waiting around while the teacher fusses over some miscreant.


  5. Howdy Louis, wowza, looks like you are doing really well. Good looks and the smarts are always a winning combination. See ya handsome. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
