There’s a robot in tha’ house! Every dog owner’s other best friend…a Roomba! Thanks to iRobot we’re test driving a Roomba 650…and after a few sniffs and a lick Relic seems pleased with his new pal. Of course we’ll see how they get along after the battery gets charged up;) I think we’ll call him “Karl 2″. Stay tuned for some video….
It’s almost that time of year again…National Robotics Week kicks off April 6th and runs to April 14th. It should be another great year of robots and robotic focused events.
Bleeker is once again thrilled to be the official mascot and above is the 2013 logo! Get all your Bleeker NRW gear in the shop and get all duded up for the annual bot party!
The NRW strips will start on the 6th but the storyline begins the week before…love is in the air this year so look for it starting April 1st…
Bubbleawesome asked about the pup yesterday…so here’s a small selection of recent photos. Relic is almost 5 months old now and is showing the wisdom and maturity of his age……..right.
With the Georgian Bay frozen over it’s been great for chucking the soft frisbee and crunching icicles. We’ve had a bit of warmer weather lately and lost most of our snow. With Spring approaching, that means mud and having a dog with white paws doesn’t seem like such a good idea.
We also finished our first six weeks of classes and had a great time at Muskoka District Kennel Club in Gravenhurst. In our final test we had to complete a series of exercises, one being the pizza test. A knock at the door signaled a pizza delivery and the dog had to sit while we (the handler) paid for the pizza from the delivery person…Relic had a hard time not saying Hi and staying put, so we ended the exercise with a 3rd place finish…the SHAME! At the end of the classes we got this group photo…it was very difficult to get 5 pups all under 6 months to stay still.
Besides working on his retrieving and obedience skills, Relic has been leaving these around the house…
My hands are especially glad to see the needle-like incisors go.
The lad weighs 26 lbs now…minus a few teeth. I’m looking forward to getting him in the water this Spring and getting those retrieves locked down. Might also try agility classes…if I can get in shape to keep up….
