Willow's Graduation

This past Saturday was very exciting around these parts because Willow graduated from Obedience Classes!

We've seen a huge difference in him over the last eight weeks, which is a great thing because I was ready to ship him off to live elsewhere!

Willow with the trainer during his final testing...

He hated wearing the grad cap. I was in Heaven, snapping pics left right and centre...

My Mom and sister came too :-) Mom brought Willow a little grad gift...

Hmm...what could it be??

Dog treats!

Thanks Mom!

The proof...

Believe it or not...I baked him a bone-shaped cake...

Ian only let him have an itty bitty piece because he was afraid the sugar would make him sick. Party pooper.

Thank you PetSmart!

Congratulations Willow!!



  1. My Effie did their classes (and hated the cap!) too! It was awesome, and I loved it. In fact, I'm thinking about going into the intermediate with her now that tax season is over...
    Congrats, Willow!

  2. What an awesome cake! I would never think of making a cake for a doggie graduation, but I love it! Congratulations Willow!

  3. Aww! I love your puppy!

  4. Willow is gorgeous...and now looks like the perfect gentleman!! Now...go be all that you can be, Willow!!

  5. Glad I'm not the only one that does these Obedience School Classes.. I have a little one taking the Puppy Classes.

  6. Good job, pup!


    He's beautiful!

  7. Wow he is soo big now! A handome boy he has become ;) Congrats to willow!

    Is he named after the movie Willow? Cuz that would be the shiz! ;-)

  12. Oh, how adorable! Love dogs, don't have any, but still love dogs! A golden too, what good family pets they are. Congrats to Willow!

    BTW, the cake...awesome!

  13. Look how cute he is just sitting there patiently looking at his cake! What a good boy. I could just squeeze him.

  14. He is such a gorgeous dog! I have two crazy dogs, one wasn't trained by us so he's perfect, and the idiot puppy (who's now 1 and should know better) who can barely sit on command, even though he graduated puppy classes. I think they just let him pass because he's cute.
    I've just found you through the Fencepost, and I look forward to visiting your blog again!

  15. aww hes so cute!!!

  16. That is just the cutest thing ever! You are so awesome! Willow is very lucky!! Congrats to Willow! I love the cake.

  18. A heartfelt congratulations to Willow! You can tell by the way he's sitting there so still, he was so caught up in the moment. What a good boy!
    You must be one proud Momma!

  19. Awwwwwwwwwwww - I just love fellow humans who make bone cakes for their hairy children! :-) Yay Willow!
