A walk in the rain

For our March meeting, we went to ride the light rail uptown and do a city walk in uptown Charlotte. It started out with just a drizzle, but soon, the rain came pouring down. To start the meeting, we met inside a puppy raiser’s office to do some business and learned about fun games to play with the puppies. Sherman’s favorite game was “controlled retrieve”. He has been practicing in the backyard with his wubba. It is one of his favorite things. The pups were extremely patient waiting for the train. Once on board, they did exactly what they were supposed to do. Sherman managed to scrunch himself into a tiny opening in front of a seat. He did extremely well on the light rail. Riding it brought back memories of when we went uptown with him for Christmas when he was only 4 months old. He did such a great job then too. He is a great traveler. Once we got off the train, we went through some of the buildings uptown, working on finding the door, switch, and the straight line concept. After we came out of the first building, it was raining harder and the dogs could have cared less about the rain. Sherman looked so sad being all wet, but I know he loved working in the rain. That is one thing I don’t have to worry about with him. He is a bit of a mudpuppy! After walking around some more, we continued back to the light rail. All of the pups did a great job with the new sights and sounds. Sherman waiting on the light rail
