7 for 7 ( Another month day for Dembre)

Wow! Tomorrow Dembre is turning 7 months. Next thing I know he'll be off to Doggy College and well on his way to becoming a four legged miracle. Here are my seven things:
  1. I love the way Dembre sees me and comes flying over to greet me. Though he's not really attached to me, he seems to think he belongs at my side at all times unless he's in the crate. I guess I've raised him that way. I didn't give him much freedom for his first 5 months and I guess he has gotten used to sticking to me. 
  2.  Dembre is SO good in public. He trots like a little angel at my side. Like Patricia Dibsie said in her book Love Heels "Puppy raising is like having a halo over your head and a pot of gold at the end of the leash." 
  3. Dembre has his ways with people. Everywhere he goes people flock to him.
  4. He's such a good sport. (CCI dogs aren't aloud to win games)
  5. On the bad side, he still eats food off the floor if he gets the chance
  6. He tends to get really excited when playing with my dog.
  7. And to close on the positive side, he's one of the best things that has ever happened to me!!!
God bless,
~Elijah & Dembre

  1. Awesome job you're doing Elijah!!

    Love Heels is a great book. If you go to the section on Facility Dogs you'll see a picture of Deb and Jeb (my mentor the humans are always talking about).

    Here's a picture of me reading the book! http://anselcci.blogspot.com/2010/08/caught-up-on-my-reading.html.

    Another good one to read is Therapy Pets: http://www.amazon.com/Therapy-Pets-Animal-Human-Healing-Partnership/dp/1591020719

    Deb and Jeb are one of the chapters in the book.

  2. Dembre looks like he's grown into a very handsome boy. It's wonderful to learn how much he is loved. Keep up the great work!

  3. Thanks, Cindy :D

    Apart from having Caro are you currently raising a CCI pup?

    P.S. my PR friend, Mary Beth, told me that Caro was bred again!
