#SAGApupVolt Is Fifty Two Weeks Old

And he's visiting us for a week!
He weighed 34.6kg on the vet's scale today, and he's still 60cm tall at the shoulder so he hasn't grown much in height.
On Friday last week I got a Whatsapp message from SAGA asking if we would be able to have Volt visit for a week! His trainer is going to PE to assist another trainer and she didn't want her dogs to stay in kennels while she was gone as they have already had two weeks of their new routine with her. So we get to have our Volt home for a week much sooner than I anticipated!
I got to have a quick word with his trainer when I fetched him and she says he's doing just fine. His positive dog distraction is a bit of a hindrance but he is obedient so its not a huge problem. And she says he's a bit of an escape artist too, which is something we didn't experience here at home! He is a very high energy dog but he is very lovable too.
We visited my folks over the weekend and he had a lovely time playing with my mom's dogs and visiting with the family.

Glad to hear he is doing well! It must be lovely to have him home for a little holiday :-)
