Diamond In The Ruff TKN, CGC, ATT
How we got him: I decided I wanted a fun dog to do sports with. I love my Siberians, but they are not an easy breed to train. I was on a waiting list for a Wirehaired Vizla, but the mom took forever to come into season. I saw that this Lab breeder had puppies available. The timing was perfect since I'm home all summer. We drove up to see him and I fell in love with him the moment we made eye contact.
How he got his name: On the drive home we looked at names for black dogs. We got as far as Carbon and we knew it was the right name. Scott came up with the registered name.
Training and showing: I taught him all sorts of tricks from a young age. They cannot earn any trick titles until 4 months of age. I had returned back to school when he was 4 months old. I was able to do the novice title, but I have not had the time to do have him do his intermediate routine yet. I have so many plans for him.
Some more about him: Carbon is an amazing dog. He lives to please, and I love him dearly.
His best friend: Bob
His favorite thing: Me and food.
