We can hardly believe that we are coming up to Linus’s two year anniversary with our family! In that time he has had so many adventures with us and is blossoming into a wonderful family member that welcomes us home with a wagging back end every day!
In his time with us so far, Linus has become a volunteer for RAGOM as well, and has been doing some home visits as well as being an ambassador at the Meet and Greets. He has quickly figured out that everyone has treats to share, and he will (shamelessly) beg by sitting. He has met a lot of friends, and it is reaffirming his confidence in meeting new people. We love being able to give back and spread the word about RAGOM, as we found out about this organization from a local meet and greet.
We have also been very active in dog sports, trying out many different things to find out what Linus loves and wants to work in. We have done agility, rally-obedience, and general obedience. Linus achieved his Canine Good Citizen title at the end of last year, and we have found that he loves to do the obedience style of training. We have taken a few Rally classes and Linus earned his Rally Novice title in October! We are very proud of his hard work, and are going to continue on the Rally path before exploring more options. He also enjoys retriever training with Dad.
In the home, Linus is a wonderful companion, he loves to be where you are. Whether that is snuggled up in the recliner with us, or laying nearby as Mom sews. He is laid back and calm. We added a new four legged family member, and they love to play and rough house together. We are constantly out hiking in the state parks and city parks nearby, and Linus loves to follow his nose to all the good smells out and about.
Thank you RAGOM, for the wonderful dog!
