TrumanVision: Hot Day at GDA

May 17, 2008 — GDA is located in Sylmar, which is also known as Blistering UV RayTown. Some days, like this particular Saturday, it’s so hot that it’s just cruel and unusual punishment to do any obedience work with the dogs up there. So in lieu of the usual monthly puppy classes, the trainers broke out the wading pools in the dog run and had us observe our pups’ play behavior.

At first, Truman didn’t think much of getting into the water, preferring instead to run around the pools with a toy in his mouth, trying to get the other dogs to take the bait and tug with him. But after a while, the siren song of happy canine splashing was too much to resist, and he joined Camry and Blitz and the rest of the dogs in their jolly water sports.

I’m not sure if he was thirsty here, or just trying to show the water who was boss by digging in it and biting the splashes.

TrumanVision, Sort Of: If Only I Were Taller

May 2, 2008 — If Truman had been tall enough to look out the window of the tool car, this is what he would have experienced. Fortunately, I shot this snippet of video to show him later. Just listen to that whistle!

TrumanVision: Truman’s Post-Bath Shuffle

I am thrilled that there’s finally an easy way to upload video directly to Blogger….

Though I tend to take more still photos of Truman than actual video (you would think the opposite would be less of a challenge), I occasionally like to record a moment for posterity. This is a brief clip of the madness that occurred after Truman’s first bath. I had promised him that I would feed him dinner afterward if he was a good boy.

Yes, I fed him anyway. But that’s not the point of this story.

For your inaugural TrumanVision experience, please enjoy a little of his post-bath “Labrador Shuffle.” Pure energy burn or an attempt to air dry himself? You decide:
