"Hey Daddy-O, this class is cramping my style. Let's make like a tree and leave." "Keep talking. I got a lot of room left in my ears yet."
For the three readers who actually read this blog, the few who know Loki and ALL the dog handlers at the K-9 Clinic, you all know how far he's come. Last year, I couldn't last 3 minutes in class without him yapping, jumping, mouthing and thrashing around like a raving lunatic. Now, when he goes to training […]
One of my current jobs is to keep the photos and content updated on The K9 Clinic Web site. Can you say "dream job?" How fun is it to add photos and think of silly captions? Check it out! Twinkle Toes, the Formosan Jumping Bean, shows us it takes more than one human hurdle to challenge […]
Can you? Wanna be startin' somthin'...
Every morning is routine here at Wild Dingo. Get up, go outside. Clean up dog yard and put up with the ridiculous antics of two very attention-needy dogs. Mr. Wild Dingo has a hard time believing that Juno can be a tough little gal and stand up to Loki. Juno never displays her confidence or strength in […]

Here are a few pix from our morning exercises. I'm warning you, he's trained to ignore hot dogs and tri tip from strangers. So don't even think about it. It's a good thing too. You just never know when it will rain hot dogs. Handsome patiently waits in the shade for his turn after Juno. […]
Wild Dingo received a voice mail message from a person asking if I had any available Formosan dogs or where to get them. If only I had the answer. Formosan dogs seem to be replacing Pit Bulls and Chihuahuas as ‘the cool breed to own.' And as much as I love this breed, I caution, […]
The trainer that Loki and Juno work with once said that huskies were "wild" dogs and not really meant to be domestic, or something along those lines. I could be mincing words so don't get up in my grill about his exact words or disagreeing with his opinion. He’s an experienced K9 police dog trainer […]
Before anyone calls the local cruelty police, take a gander at how I arrived at this month's banner. That's Loki's "Game on!" face. If you didn't know him and saw that face, you'd most likely have an accident in your pants. But when you know him, and see that face, it makes you laugh so […]
