The Adventures of MEL!
Mel is a puppy from the Oliver X Layla litter born on April 16, 2021. This is a chronicle of Mel's adventures from two to four months of age. Watch Mel grow!
Mel Goes to Kindergarten
Mel went to his first kindergarten class at Kaye Ames People School for Dogs in Lancaster, PA. Mel already knew most of the commands being taught so he was the star of the class. A stellar student! But we have a few new commands to work on: Side (sit by my left side), Front (sit in front of me), and Stay.
Mel at the Ice Cream Shop
Mel went on a trip to the neighboring town of Bainbridge to visit the Ice Cream Shop.
The shop owner gave Mel a little bowl of ice cream. He loved it!
Uh-oh... Mel has a problem. He has ice cream on his nose and his tongue isn't long enough to lick it off!
Mel hangs out with the BIG dogs
All of Mel's littermates have gone to their new homes and Mel has officially started puppy training.
Much to Mel's dismay, puppy training begins with the CRATE!
Mel has also learned seven commands during his first week of training. . This very smart little guy now knows: Sit, Down, Come, Touch, Watch Me, Touch, Turn, and Park-it.
Summer Playground Adventure
Mel met dozens of children when he visited a summer playground program.
Uh oh... Mel tries leaping from the lounge chair to the raft. It didn't end well for Mel!
