Tanner is having an operation today, in which a part of his manhood will be removed. This is utterly disturbing to me, but it had to be done as we have no breeding intentions with him. I dropped him off this morning, and he seemed extra excited to go to the vet -- if only he knew. You can post 'get well' or 'sympathy' comments here and I'll make sure he sees them during his recovery period.

In related news, Tanner has moved on to Level 3 training, which will involve 'high' jumping and other fun things. In his Level 2 class he learned to bow, walk backwards, and look cute by putting his chin on his paw; roll over, play dead, and wave are still a work in progress.
