Mom says she has to remediate me in my training - the two weeks mom and dad were on vacation I didn't have to do anything. Grandma and grandpa are too old to worry about training. So mom said we'll start from scratch. I don't mind - just means I'll get plenty of things to keep my mind occupied.

Mom has been so busy - but she manages to take us for our walks every day. She says its her therapy. Whatever it is it works for me!!

Everytime mom goes somewhere in the truck she take me and Boomer along!! She's so awesome!! We LOVE to ride in the truck!!

Mom and dad went on vacation. I got to stay at home with grandma and grandpa. We had company visit and I wasn't a good boy. These strangers walked right into my house. I pulled away from grandma, but grandpa got me and put me in my crate. Grandma said I was a good boy for the rest of the time. That made mom so happy!! All of our training is paying off!!!

Boomer was pretty sad for the first few days, she thought mom and dad weren't coming home. But I reassured her that mom and dad would never leave us!!! They love us too much!

And sure enough mom and dad came home!! Mom took us to the lake for a walk - we love that!!

Gotta go!!


Look grandma and grandpa, I'm a big boy now!!

Grandma and grandpa came to visit!! The last time I saw them I was this crazy run around puppy!! Now I'm such a gentleman!! I've been to school and got the smarts real good!! ;}

Grandma offered me a treat and I sat and was so gentle. She was so impressed and told me so!!

I love it when I get treats for doing good things!!!

Mom has been running around like crazy getting ready for vacation. She said I'm not going to boarding because my job is to stay with Boomer. I don't mind - Boomer plays with me. Mom said she's got tommorrow off and will make sure we get to play frisbee (did someone say FRISBEE!!). Can't wait!!

Road Trip

Mom and dad went out the other night and came home with one of those white bags that smell soooooo good. The bag has lettering on it something like P-e-t-c-o. Not sure what that meant but, I got a Bull stick - yeah! and some of those yummy cookies. Mom also bought me a winter coat. It has sheepskin on one side and velour on the other - it was too big.

Mom said, "Come on Turner Road Trip". That means do my silly hop-jump out the yard to the truck!! Mom took me to my favorite store - Petco!! Mom exchanged the jacket. I had to try on the new one just for size in the store - everyone said I looked like Count Dogula. Whatever that is!! I just loved all the attention!!!

Mom said I need the coat because we're getting another home in Texas. And that the winters are colder there. Good thing I got a warm coat - I don't have much fat to me!!!

Love Road Trips!!

See ya later,



I'm feeling a little crazy today.

Went to training - everyone has been soooo impressed by my improvements. I'm becoming quite the gentleman!! Mom knew I had it in me!! About 15 minutes before the class was going to end people started coming in to wait for the next class. This one lady made a sound like a cat - hey where did that sound come from. Then I heard this really strange sound - it freaked me out. I stood on moms foot and leaned against her shaking like crazy - what was that sound. I'm not tooo sure about it - no I don't want any food for a treat - no I don't want to look at you - what was that damn sound????? Mom took me outside - she said I shut down and had to leave the area. She called dad and said I had a new fear - the sound of goats. Whatever the sound of goats is I am definately freaked out about it!!! Mom assured me that the sound of goats wouldn't hurt me - hope she's right!!!

Good thing mom and dad have cows!! I like them!!! But this goat thing - NOT!!!


Who said school isn't fun!!!

Mom took me to Best Paw Forward in Sanford to start my Basic Manners Class. It was so much fun. Since I'm afraid of other dogs getting in my face I got my own special spot with a couple of walls so I don't freak out. I also get to wear a bandana to let the instructors know how special I am. You know the best part about school? Clicker training!! I get treats every time I do something good! Mom clicks and I get a treat! Every time!! When school was done we went for ice cream!! Boy this school thing is working out great!! I was so pooped out after class that I slep for the 2 hour drive home. Now we have our training sessions every day and next week I go back to learn more, yea!!!

Gotta go - if I behave I might get hear that click sound and get another treat!!


My Tail of Devotion for Turner

Turner - my retard;}. He makes me laugh at some of the stupid looks he can give you. Turner is the most affectionate dog I have ever had. He will face you and place his paw on your shoulder and "hug" you. So smart that we have to stay one step ahead of him. His smile will brighten your day when your down in the dumps. We drove three hours to a kill shelter to get him and believe me it was worth every mile!!

This is a special Tail of Devotion

Mom said I'm AWESOME!!

Well mom and I have been working on my fear of other dogs. I've got a new gentle leader head halter and have been working hard at clicker training!! Sometimes I get treats, sometimes I get rubbed but I've been paying more attention to mom and I feel great!!

Mom decided to see how far I've come since we've started. So off to Petco we go!! I was so happy - I love going to that store - it has the BEST smells!! Well not long into our shopping a little teacup yorkie came towards me real fast. Mom stepped in front of me blocking me from the little monster. I sat down and watched her. Mom told the other lady with the yorkie that I was in training that I was afraid of dogs. The lady looked at mom like she was crazy. I did great!! Next I saw a couple of basset hounds - boy are they low and long!! One took a poop in the aisle, the other just barked and barked. As soon as I saw them I sat next to mom and waited for my click and praise!! She said I was AWESOME!! I was sooo happy that I pranced around the store one more time just to show mom how far we have really come!!

Once we checked out I got into the truck and covered mom with big sloppy wet kisses!! She was so happy that she called dad and said I was AWESOME!!

Well I've got to go now, time to play since I'm now AWESOME!!

Mom took me to this cool park in Clermont. We walked in the sun and boy did it get hot!! Luckily there wasn't too many dogs around so I wasn't nervous, it was soo much fun!! Mom has been helping me with this new stuff - clicker training. She would click when I did something right at the park but I wasn't interested in any treat. So a good rub on my chest was all I needed....

Mom said we're going to the park on Saturday to see how I do with other dogs around. Now that I know she'll make sure I'm safe I don't have any worries!!!

See ya!!
