Phase 1!

Spike is finally in phase 1! I am now at ease, knowing that he is actually finally starting the training.

Apparently Spike wasn't technically in phase 0 until 9/10. So he was showing up as being in phase 0 on the 9/2 and the 9/9 phase reports, when he wasn't.. I guess he wasn't even at the Oregon campus at that time? Or he was recovering from his neuter? I didn't fully understand what my leader said. I pretty much stopped listening after she said the CFR said Spike would be in phase 1 this week. haha

Just because I am so happy right now, here are a few pictures of Spike.

Here he is at puppy meeting a few months before recall.

We were taking a walk along the canal. We had to get to the other side of it, but there were no bridges. So we crossed the big metal pipe thing. I didn't think we would have any problems, but I got so dizzy looking down at the stationary pipe with the water moving below it. I thought I would fall in haha. Spike did fine, though.

Spike at Antelope Island less than a week before recall. There is a bison in the background, but he was more interested in the people to his right.

Spike at Antelope island again. This was after we were done playing in the Great Salt Lake. If you look carefully, you can see the salt crusted on his fur. I'm curious to see what black Clyde would look like after a dip in the Salt Lake.


  1. YAY!!!!

    I was so happy to see him in phase one! I know you have to be just thrilled. Go Mr. Spike :)

  2. Good luck, handsome Spike!! Look forward to hearing about your progress.

  3. Finally! I'll wager that Spike will fly through the phases now. :)
