7 things about Skippy

I was tagged in the 7 things meme again (this time by Adekun at Adekun's Japan Blog), so, since I just did this a couple weeks ago, I thought it must be Skippy's turn. (woof!) So here are seven random things about the fluffy black puppy.

Skippy was born on Easter two and a half years ago in a litter of 7 puppies (five sisters and one brother). Skippy and his litter mates looked a lot like guinea pigs when they were born. He wasn't very cute 'til he was about 4 weeks old. We brought him home when he was 8 weeks old. He was already house trained and only had one "accident" in the first month! He is allergic to all grains and red meats and loves his grain-free dog food (Innovo, Evo) and lots of cooked chicken. Skippy is an advanced beginner in obedience classes and is doing so well in his agility classes with my teenage son as his handler that they may be in a dog show this fall. The final random fact is that Skippy doesn't really do any work in the garden. He is real good company though.

Good for you! it is so good to see people take an interest in their dog's behaviour. Skippy must really enjoy the agility training - I expect he has lots of spare energy to burn off!
