Noah Balboa

[Insert victorious ‘Rocky’ music here]

That’s right.  After months of serious stick-carrying training on our daily walks, Noah has conquered  the world champion of all sticks– a tree trunk.  He’s been working on this one for a while.  It was a small redwood tree that died, and I had taken it out of its container, root ball and all.  As you can see, last night he finally whittled the root ball down to a manageable size (it was a 10 gallon root ball,) and was able to complete his training exercise this morning!

And then he took his victory lap around the yard with his tree trunk.

I wish I could have taken a video of him running full speed around the yard with his tree trunk–complete joy!

We’re off for another ‘practice session,’ walking, a little running, and of course, the prerequisite stick-carrying (only Noah participates in this part of the exercise.)
