Wagon Testing

Hey Pups!

I got to try out my new, extra-special harness today when mom got home from work. She doesn't normally have to work on the weekends, but every once in a while she teaches other co-workers things like CPR/first aid and safe crisis management.

When mom got home, Dad, the little biped, and myself were outside waiting for her. I was sooooooo excited. (Canyon was very upset and was flipping out inside watching us, he has these separation from his people issues if he sees them and can't be with them, I'm sure he thoroughly annoyed Kelsey Ann....hehehehehe)
Anywoo, they got me hooked up for our first trial run.
After a little while mom and dad came up with a different idea to hook me up to the wagon. The handle of the wagon kept dragging on the ground when I stopped, so Dad tied a rope underneath the wagon which my lead hooks up to.

I had to make sure I was able to perform normal bodily functions on the go.....very important for a working dog.

After practicing in the yard for awhile, Mom and Dad decided it was time for us to take it to the street in preparation for the parade tomorrow. We walked for about a block and then walked back to the house. (sorry I don't have any pictures of this but the battery in the camera decided to take a rest, we promise it will be charged up tomorrow for the parade) When we got home mom opened the back of the Sibe Vibe and started unloading the various items she had gotten today for Clark Griswold's, aka. Dad's, fantastic best-in-town Christmas light display. He is predicting this year we will have between 15, 000 and 20,000 lights. As soon as there was enough room in the back of the Vibe I hopped in. Mom and Dad forgot to tell me we wouldn't have to leave for the parade until tomorrow morning. So, I'm off to rest up for my BIG "official" sled dog debut!

Kisses, Sky boy

You look great pulling the wagon. So great that it gave us an idea. You should get harnesses for Canyon and Kelsey Ann and you could pull your biped dressed in a Santa outfit. That would make yoru dad's light display the best for sure!

Ha! We call our Dad Clark Griswold too...You can see our house from the Moon!

I think that carting stuff looks hard. I think I'd just lay down & give up.
