You can now call me...


I took my test yesterday, and I passed!!! I almost screwed it up though... I had to do my sit, down, sit, stay... then I had to come when mom called me.  Well, I started to come, then I went over to check out my brush instead of going straight to mom.  Hey, I just wanted to make sure my brush wasn't going to get left there!  I went to mom eventually!  She was a little shocked when I ignored her... oops.  But I passed anway because I came to her eventually... and I didn't go up to anyone or any other dogs, I just went to check out my brush, BOL!  Heather took video of my test, so you can all see how awesome I did and how horrible I did on my "come" command.  Mom took video of Heather and Emmett, so we'll include that too for those of you that know my brotha from anotha motha!

This is the beginning of my test... my greet, grooming, heeling, sit, down, stay, horrible come.

This is the "walking through a crowd" test and loud noise test

Mom can't figure out how to get the last 2 video's here... so you'll have to go to YouTube to check them out...

This is everybody that was in my class!  We all passed!
What? That's it? We're done?
I passed??? Seriously??? I passed?
I'm a GOOD CITIZEN! Woooooo!
Now what do we do?
Next week I start agility classes!  Wahoo!!!  I'm going to do Therapy Dog Training soon too... but mom says we need to work on the "come" first... and apparently the "leave it" which I'm normally really good at... except for the "come" part of my test... because I didn't want to leave my brush.

I took some more great adventures yesterday and today!  Check in tomorrow to see the official list of the trips I've taken with my awesome furiends!  Then the judging will begin!

Later Dudes!
-Corbin, CGC


  1. Congratulations!!!!

    Personally, I think knowing where your brush is at all times is very important! It's not silly to check it out and remind mom it's there!!

    Way to go Buddy!!

  2. Corbin - We're so proud of you! CONGRATS!!! Your sit/stay was awesome buddy! Our Mom & Dad are always forgetting where they put stuff, like keys and whatnot, so they would totally appreciate a reminder so things don't get left behind. We think you're just so smart, you're ahead of everyone else :) They're sitting and staying and coming and you're off FINDING! Yay!

  43. Oh, CORBIN! I am SO very much proud of you. I knew, knew, knew you could do it. And I'm glad they didn't fail you cuz you wanted to go check out your brush. I mean, you just wanted to make sure it didn't get broken or anything. I think that's pawfectly understandable.

    I'm just really, really, really happy for you! YAY!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  44. Mazel tov, Corbin, CGE! We're impressed. Abby loves doggies with initials after their names :) And we bet that lady had food smells on her hand that got transferred to your brush or something, so of course you had to check it out.

    We've really been enjoying your contest! You have some furry good friends!

    We sure hope Merry and her babies will find great forever homes.

    Jed & Abby, L.B.E.

  45. Hooray Corbin, we knew you could do it!
