I'm a CGC!!!

Today was responsible Dog Owners day so we headed to Centralia for a fun doggie day in the park. There were dog's of all shapes, sizes and colors. Here Danzig say's hello to a pink and purple poodle. We spent a couple of hours just walking around and checking out the smells and then headed off to sign up for AKC CGC (Canine Good Citizen) testing.

The test has 10 stations included a separation test. Here a police officer holds Danzig while I hide behind a tree. The police officer had a K9 shepherd and he was smitten with Danzig since the moment we arrived. We spent a lot of time talking with him.

I'm a very proud Mom today as Danzig passed and is now officially a CGC! I was nervous but Danzig was as cool as a cucumber and he did great!

After the test we headed to the brand new off leash dog area at the far end of the park. This was our 1st such experience and I've heard some horror stories so was apprehensive at 1st. The area had just opened a few weeks ago so it was clean and not at all crowded. There were 2 separate areas, 1 for big and the other for small dogs. The white dog saying hi to Danzig was a shepherd who just had his coat shaved.

Way to go Danzig, you rock!
