Update on Kona

So, life has been super busy lately. No surprise there. I have some stories I need to post, but I can't find the pictures yet, so I'll have to work on them later. Instead I've decided to post an update on our cute dog Kona.

Kona is now 10 months old. I weighed him last week and he's up to 117 lbs. He's tall...tall enough that he can drink out of the sink. Actually his head comes up to our bar, so that might give you some perspective. Speaking of the sink...the other day, I caught him licking a cereal bowl that one of the kids left in the sink with milk and floating lucky charms. Yep, he's that big...

Here are some of his favorite things to do:

- Snuggle on the love seat in the office while dad works.
- Zoomies around the living room and up and down the stairs, around the basement, between the kids' beds, etc. Just zoomies in general.
- Gutting his stuffed animals.
- Going on walks. He has spring fever and LOVES to be outside.
- Pointing at birds. Apparently, he thinks he's a bird dog.
- Training!

As far as the training goes, he's still in dog school, but we're going to stop for the summer since our Saturdays have become quite busy. However, he's training for a dog show! Our vet has a health clinic in the spring and this year, they've invited the dogs in dog school to perform some tricks. It's on April 30 at Mountain View Veterinary Clinic in Providence, UT. Kona has learned several new tricks, but mostly he just likes to watch the other dogs. Tim is certain this event is going to be a circus in all senses of the word, but we'll see. Kona and I have been working hard so hopefully, he'll at least do some of the tricks he knows. I'm hoping that Tim will record this event so I can post it on here, but we'll see.

Anyways, Kona is awesome. He definitely adds alot of joy and happiness in our lives and much laughter. I'll definitely let you know how the "circus" goes!
