One year of CGCness

One year ago today I earned my CGC certificate. Seems a lot longer ago! The certificate has 10/17/2009 on it, but that is the date of my paperwork for the furst time I took the CGC exam. We did not do so well on the greetin' another person with a dog that furst time around. So we practiced ALOT and we came back 10 days later and tried again. On 10/27/2009 I passed the CGC test! We were very happy that day! Actually Mom was happy. I am not into credentials.

So any CGC hopefurs takin' the CGC and not passin' the furst time, don't give up! Just keep workin' on it! You'll do it!

So have I been upholding CGCness for the past year? I think so! If anything I am overly friendly rather than shy. In fact, controlling my exuberance was one of my biggest challenges while studying for CGC. I luv peoples & pups! I would luv kitties, too, but they won't come to me. I never run away from home and I greet any neighborhood pups who make their way to our house. I've stopped goin' over to swim in our neighbor's pond (after I got yelled at) and I don't excessively bark.

Ok, so I am avoidin' bringin' up the 10 CGC requirements. Mom was lookin' it over and we have to admit I am a little rusty on quite a few. Once I passed we kinda relaxed. Actually relaxed ALOT! Maybe time fur a little review?!

Since you already know them, reviews should be easy.
While I never did anything like CGC, growlmy & I regularly go through a varied 'menu' of my 'tricks' so I don't furget what I learned...never know when I may need to show off! BOL!
Have a nice day!

Hi Petey, MrJack, Zaidie, Flicka & Whitley! Thanks fur the barks of encouragement!

Zaidie, ma wondered sometimes if we should've waited, too. Maybe it would've been easier. But we was already in training classes and trainin' mode, so we went fur it! We think you make a great Canadian Good Neighbor already! BOL!

Flicka, ma agrees CGC should not be the end of the journey. That's why she's a little mortified at how lax we've become. I probably won't get anymore letters behind my name but there's always more to learn fur me and my peoples!
