Volt is Fifty Nine Weeks Old

We fetched Volt from SAGA’s kennels on Friday afternoon, and he was very happy to see us indeed, it was so sweet! Initially we couldn’t find him in the outside runs of the kennels so we went inside to look for him, and as luck would have it he was right at the end. I was almost afraid I wouldn’t recognise him but I spotted him immediately!
He’s home for a two week holiday over Christmas, as his trainer is taking a break and didn’t want to leave the dogs in kennels whilst she’s away.
All the SAGA trainers go on holiday over Christmas so the dogs in training either go home to their puppy-walker families or they spend a couple of weeks boarding with volunteer families.
We didn’t get to the vet for a weigh-in, but is still 57cm tall at the shoulder, so I think he has stopped growing for sure.
When he arrived home I immediately let him off-lead and he and Riddick took off into the back garden to get re-acquainted and then they played until they were both exhausted! Its so sweet how well they get on and how well they play together.
Then I had to pop out to the shops and when we got home about an hour later Volt had dug a big hole in the corner of the back garden!

On Saturday we spent the day at my parents house and the dogs always come with us when we go there. Volt was super excited to see all the people he knew again and he and Riddick had a ball with the hose pipe and the children and the toys. They were quite exhausted when they got home.

Volt will be going back to SAGA to continue his training a day or two after New Year.
