Assistance Dog Exhibition at K-State, TBG’s perspective

From what I remember of yesterday, it seemed to go well and there were lots of people.

As far as Ansel, well……he was a WILD BEAST, from the moment we entered the building until we left in the afternoon. Uncontrollable, out of his mind, wild dog are just a few adjectives that come to mind. If Ansel was a fighter jet, yesterday could best be described by 3 words. CRASHED AND BURNED!

Obviously, he was living in an alternate universe. I’m at a loss to describe his meltdown. If you can imagine taking a wild raccoon, tying a firecracker to its tail and lighting the fuse, you might be able to visualize Ansel yesterday.

Now, everything else about the day other than his actions was wonderful. It was a great informal greet in the Union and the presentation went flawlessly and was superb. It was very informative and the speakers were the tops bar none! James and Schwan surely did steal the show!

We did meet a couple that was interested in becoming puppy raisers. I hope they look into it and if it works out for them, great!

All said, the day was great, Ansel was a train wreck and we move on, inching closer to that August turn-in. I sure hope yesterday was a last gasp at mush brains for Ansel. I’d hate to have to paint a blue “P” on his head.

Here's a typical picture from yesterday. What you can't see in the picture is where Ansel breaks his "sit" and turns a pristine shot into a chaotic dog "twirl" that took minutes to untangle and re-shoot. This was typical of his actions, ALL...DAY...LONG!


  1. I beg to differ. Ansel was a model PIT! And, I watched you guys take that last shot. Very good puppies one and all! :)

  2. This post made me burst out laughing twice, but i can hardly believe my Favorite of All the Dogs was a wild beast. I tried to imagine it but i can't. if i become a puppy trainer it wil be because Ansel and (heh) SWMBO visited my office...
