America's Next Top DOG Model

Today Kramer and Wilma participated in a photo shoot to model a dog fitness vest. The photos will be used for marketing and advertising Laguard Dog vests.
These vests are used to add weight to your dog, so a 20 minutes walk with the vest gives the dog the same amount of exercise as a 60 minute walk without the vest.
These vests are also used in physical therapy and conditioning for dogs. Wilma is demonstrating how to stretch in the vest on an inflatable egg physical fitness ball.
Madison and Kramer worked together to show that all breeds of dogs, even poodles, need to exercise.

Macy is a Leader Dog

Macy is a working girl now! She was delivered to her new handler on Wednesday!
Jennifer and I drove to Rochester on Tuesday to see her and wish her luck in her new career. At first, she didn't seem to even notice us, but then after a few sniffs she seemed to all of a sudden remember us and started wiggling all over.

Macy is working somewhere in Michigan! So we'll be watching for her everywhere we go!
Good Luck Macy!!

Happy Halloween!

Here are the kids dressed up for their Dock Club Halloween Party. This year, the Cat in the Hat had his sidekicks Thing 1 and Thing 2 with him.

The party was complete with a costume parade, dog games (Wilma won the Peanut Butter Lick!) , a scanvger hunt in the woods (where we found a pumpkin with dog bones tied to it!), and lots of good food and dog treats!

Macy Update

I received word today that Macy has been issued (meaning she was matched with a blind person) and is in the current student class at the Leader Dog school! IF all goes well, she will graduate on Oct 16th and me and Jen will get so see her again and meet her new handler.

Cross your fingers for her!
