Mary, Duncan and I spent the day at the AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day event. We were there to work the German Shepherd Dog Club of Greater Raleigh table, and we shared our space with the German Shepherd Rescue. Duncan was, as always, an excellent ambassador of the breed. He was very well behaved, and was loved on and admired by just about everyone who stopped by. Duncan even took a few minutes to show off a few of his freestyle skills and his very focused “stay.” We did take some time to check out the other booths and watch a few demonstrations. The AKC had dogs showing off obedience, rally, agility, flyball and herding.

Duncan in front of the first table we set up. We ended up moving to a different table so we'd have more room.

Mary and Duncan at our table. Duncan actually has both front feet on my chair.

Taking a break to love on Mom.

Duncan was not the least bit interested in taking a cookie from the strange person in the dog costume.

The day was a lot of fun, although Duncan and I were both very happy to get home. After a quick round of playtime with Reyna, Duncan zonked out on the couch for a couple of hours. Hope he gets plenty of rest tonight, because he’s got herding practice first thing tomorrow morning!

It was fun...nice re-cap. Could not have done it successfully without you and Duncan. Thanks so much for all you are. You mean a lot to me. Mary B.

I've always wanted to have a responsible dog.

Don't get wet tomorrow AM, I'm planning on working on the truck again and you know how that irritates the weather Gods.

The weather Gods were kind - the rain stopped when we got to the training site.
