Like every other puppy I've had, Aiobe thinks the vacuum cleaner is something she should keep under very close observation. Like several other dogs I've know, she actually enjoys being vacuumed herself. Maybe it feels like a massage. What sets this puppy apart is that she gets so relaxed when she's being vacuumed that she actually falls asleep. I'd have taken a picture of it, but I couldn't figure out how to juggle the camera, snoring dog, and vacuum cleaner all at the same time. You'll just have to use your imagination.

In the garden again

Aiobe and I have been spending quite a bit of time in the garden. We both like being outside, and when the weather is fine it seems like a good idea to take advantage of it. A couple days ago I thought it would be fun to see what would happen if I put Aiobe in the big wheelbarrow. She was very good and even seemed to enjoy being rolled around the yard.

A new toy!

Aiobe found a new toy today. She was very proud of herself when she brought it to me.

Aiobe and Sprint

Aiobe would like to play with Sprint all day long. At 14 1/2 years old he prefers things quiet. I raised Sprint for Guide Dogs for the Blind, Inc. of San Rafael California, and he was a working dog for many years. I kept in touch during that time, and when he retired four years ago he came to live with me. Aiobe is the third CCI puppy he's helped raise.
