Cailloux graduated. Yes… there was a final exam consisting of all the different commands she had learned during the last 6 weeks.
For each command that she completed she got a tiny milkbone. The dog with the most amount of milkbones at the end of the class would be considered the Valedictorian of the class. After all the completed commands, and garnering a total of 11 milkbones, Cailloux took home the prestigious “Doggie Obedience Class” Valedictorian. Yes, proud mother indeed.
After laughing internally at myself for a little while (also cue eye roll in disbelief), I decided to take some pictures of the event.
Firstly, there was a “Congratulations” banner. How freaking adorable is that?!
Then I asked Cailloux to lie “DOWN”, which she did perfectly, and I snapped a picture of her next to her certificate of completion.
And now proof that she got the 11 milkbones:
Oh! Did I mention that they played “Pomp & Circumstance” as they handed out the certificates? Yeah, that happened.
