Monty goes to the meeting
Tonight was our monthly Kennel Club meeting which dogs are invited to attend. Seeing Monty has only been in a vehicle once, back when he was 6 weeks old and traveled to have his hearing test - but never since; nor has he ever met a dog that doesn't have spots, it was his turn to go on an adventure. The ride up was a bit shaky, he whined a bit but luckily had company on the back seat, one of Pam's Whippets went with us too. When we arrived at the meeting location we practiced walking on a leash (he's very athletic and was able to get some spectacular jumps in the air), then headed in the meeting room. Seeing Monty has always been the quite one in the group, I expected him to be shy and even timid with all the strangers and strange dogs. What a wonderful surprise when he never showed an ounce of being scared, timid or shy! He LOVED everyone and everything. His tail was just a wagging the entire time. He met lots of friendly people, men and women; as well as a Beagle named Abby, another whippet, a papillion named Jazz, and one REALLY HUGE Doberman. Monty acted as if he'd been meeting stangers every day of his life. We received many complements reguarding his lovely temperment and what a charming young man he is. Good boy Monty!
