5 month day

Okay, okay so I am 2 days late. But my boy is five months old! He has been here for 3 months and is doing fantastic! I love this puppy, he is so goofy and wonderful with a real work ethic. He loves going out and is a joy to have in public. We are working out a few kinks, hopefully they will resolve soon, but other than that he is great. He weighed in this morning at 35 pounds. He is smaller than his big brothers, but he was the runt of the litter. :) He fits in his adult collar at the smallest setting, but the plate on it makes it a funny shape that rubs his neck in weird places, so we will wait a few weeks. :D

Fullertons bat dog impression.
On Saturday (Fullertons actual 5 month day) we had puppy class at Discovery Academy. It is a High School in Utah. Anyway, we did a presentation for them. We started as a big group and my leader spoke to everyone and showed a couple videos and then we broke off into groups and each raiser talked to and answered questions to the students. It was a lot of fun, and Fullerton got so many complements about how well behaved he is and how cute. Everyone said he was the cutest, and I totally agree. :D (Not that I am biased or anything) Fullerton was the youngest one there by about 8 months, so he looked pretty small. But he behaved himself and was a great rep for GDB.
I showed the students how the groom the dog, and they took turns brushing his fur and teeth. They had a good time.

More brushing teeth.
And playing tug with one of the students. I also showed the students some games we played like tug and come. They had fun and were giggling watching Fullerton come running to them. He is so goofy when he comes, he does this jack rabbit leaping thing and gets so excited. It was a great outing and all the dogs and students really enjoyed themselves. Fullerton was exhausted when we got home and slept the rest of the afternoon. That's about it for now. Ta ta everyone!

Happy belated five months, Fullerton! In some pictures, he looks really similar to Peyton. Got to love those yellow boys from the Tiburon line. :)
