Whiskey continues to love life in Northern Minnesota. Although spring was slow on coming (it snowed 4 inches last week) it has finally come, and so the adventuring begins! Even though the water is FREEZING, that hasn't stopped him from going in the lake, although admittedly he may have over-committed on a lean and fallen in the first time! It sure is hard to balance 38 lbs of puppy sometimes! Water fetch is now his favorite game. He went fishing for the first time a few weeks ago and earlier this week he took his first trip into the BWCA. His training is going well and Ruth is starting the long process of getting him certified as a service dog. The biggest challenge will be getting him to listen to another handler as part of the final testing process, because he does NOT like it when she is out of sight.
