It is good to hear from you. Cody is doing very well. He is my best buddy. His has his front paws in my lap now as I type. I'm sorry we (temporarily) lost touch. Over the winter I took Cody through three consecutive agility classes. Two of which were REAlly fun and we learned a lot of extra fun games to play at home. Some were crate games so he became more 'friendly' with his crate. I even started to teach him to ride a skateboard.
.... now for the news.... Cody and I moved to California this week. It was a very sudden change in work assignments for me. So, we are currently living in a very nice apartment complex. It has a dog park on the property and it is adjacent to a wonderful (human) park that has a large dog park within walking distance. I think he (and I ) will really like it here. We live in Santa Maria California. It is called the "central coast". very close to the beaches. He and I are going to the beach now. I am curious about his reaction. I have never seen him around water.
Take care .
