We are camping on South Bass Island. Home of Put-In Bay. Mini Key West. Lots of bars with outdoor seating. Golf carts running everywhere. Generally intoxicated participants in the island wide party everywhere.

We went bar hopping for 5 hours with the dogs. Lots of attention, loud music and people, other dogs... Loads of fun.

Valor is very attentive to his surroundings but calm. Willing to meet people but generally uninterested in doing so. Just a good boy.

This is how we watch TV :)

I regularly do long down stays as well.

I ran sound at an outdoor event today. I took Valor for setup and he stayed for the whole event. He was off leash the whole time.

He's just a go everywhere, do everything dog. I let him roam as he pleased. There was about a hundred people in the audience. Lawn chairs and picnic tables kind of thing. He would occasionally wander around and say hi to newcomers and then make his way back and lay down.

I love this dog.

Sounds like he had a blast!

So happy that life is beginning to open up again. 😊

Going to my first "jam" next Saturday. They still ask for masking though, and I've never tried to play a stringed instrument for 2 hours while wearing a mask, so it could be utterly Miserable...
will just leave early if I can't take it!
I'm also curious about what the people who sing, do. 😷

First time on a boat. By the end of the afternoon, he was diving off the bow, retrieving and coming back up the ladder by himself.

He’s maturing into a nice dog.
Yeah. I like him a lot.

We were at my brother in law's. They have a APBT and an American Bulldog. They got along very well with both my dogs. Apparently that's a first as they were worried about it.

The APBT had a seizure in the other room and Valor jumped up from under the table and went to check on her. We wouldn't have known otherwise.

Valor also jumped up on the front rack of a 4 wheeler and rode through the woods with me. First time. No training.

He's just a good dog with dog nerves and a do anything attitude. In all honesty, that's more important to me than protection work, though I feel he will do well.

I’d certainly rather have a dog with a good attitude and strong nerves than a dog with weak nerves and amazing protection work.

Oh I concur. That's a liability.

I'm officially a fur daddy. I'm teaching him to sit pretty.
