A few weeks ago, Santa also came to visit our Canine Companions class. He collected food for the local food bank and stayed to get his picture taken with all of the puppies and raisers. Unlike Haddie who attacked Santa with Kisses ~ Kolby was very proper and obedient. I love the look on Kolby's face, looking so wise and on his best behavior, and then also his legs drooping over Santa's lap as if to say, "Santa and I? We go way back."
I am so happy that Kolby is so friendly and was not worried about the big guy with the long white beard and soft red suit.
*There always seems to be "something" that happens when my friend and I are on a Canine Companions Outing. This time it was an unleashed dog who wandered over to Kolby. Granted, we were in the boutique pet store, but we also have a leash law in our State which is to be withheld in all public situations.
This little puppy was Adorable, no doubt, but it was also very social and got right into Kolby's face. The owner did not make a move to get her dog away from Mister, so insert my buddy who swiftly, and with great etiquette, got the violator puppy away from Kolby - bent down to the puppies level (aka: sat on the floor) and talked to the owner while holding the puppies collar.
Then my friend went so far as to help this woman put a pink winter vest on her puppy. My friend is a cat-person by nature, so we both looked at each other and smirked at the clueless owner who was taking full advantage of my friend. HA!
You are a good sport, J!! Thank you for always putting up with anything that happens while we are on outings. Kolby and I enjoyed the training of patience while we watched and waited (wink).
