Introducing: COSMO

Our next pup up as we continue introducing our pack is COSMO.  He's a cool dog that walks with a swagger and flirts with all the ladies.  I know y'all will love him.

Picture taken the day Isaac met Cosmo.

Cosmo is our big brother. He just turned two at the end of March. He belongs to Isaac (our human's third born child). Cosmo was a gift to Isaac on his seventh birthday. Those two were made for each other and you hardly see one playing without the other. Momma says, "Every boy should have a dog - especially when that dog loves their boy like Cosmo loves his." I don't know about all that, but they do seem like a match made in Heaven.
When Cosmo came to live with our family, he was almost six months old.  He'd never been on a leash before and had no motivation to learn to walk on one.  He did not like playing fetch or with toys.  He seemed sad most of the time.  An award winning, dog trainer friend told mom that Cosmo had NO DRIVE and wasn't trainable.  He'd be fine for a pet, but not to expect much from him.  Mom loves a challenge and took his words as one.  Determined for Cosmo to be more than a pet, she made the commitment to spend every spare minute training with him.  He now prances instead of walks on a leash - prettier than any show dog you ever did see - and has better manners than any other dog in our family (except for Scarlet, of course).  Isaac hopes to have Cosmo tested for CGC and TDI in July. 
Isaac calls Cosmo his best friend and plans to start agility classes with Cosmo this fall.



AROOOOF!

  2. I love the picture and hearing about Cosmo who is a perfect example of a pup that has hidden talent--I'm glad your Mom didn't listen but saw in him the potential that he has!!

  3. This is what I am saying.....

    behind every good dog is a kid and a person who gives 110%, never giving up on us.

    Everybody wins.

    Boondocks you are like so lucky to live with the family you came into. It is a pretty cool one.

  7. I think momma's very wise, and there is nothing more special than a boy and his dog(s). :)
