A Day with Dagan

close up profile shot of handsome black lab dagan, his face is slightly wet from the grass and his mouth is open in a smileDagan's humans had an all-day meeting on Saturday, so he got to come spend the whole day with us. Dagan is a big, handsome boy who used to be a puppy-in-training for Guide Dogs for the Blind, but with his recent career-changed status, he could come enjoy his new pet privileges at our favorite dog park.

black lab dagan and yellow lab puppy katra holding ends of a stick and walking side by side, they look very puppyish in their playWe even got to play for a while with Dagan's partner in crime, Katra, an 8-month old yellow lab in training with Canine Companions (click here to read about their most recent crime). CCI dogs are allowed to do some things that Guide Dogs pups aren't, like go to dog parks, chase balls, and be off leash. And I guess all dogs are allowed to parade around with sticks!

dagan has the stick in his mouth and cabana and katra are on either side of him trying to get it awayCabana was super excited to have new labby pals at the park.

dagan sniffing grass in the background, while two sets of dogs are on either side of him, both set has a yellow lab and a brindled dog of indistinguishable breed but both have some pit bull in their heritageAnd even more excited for her new friends to meet up with her old friends. No, you're not seeing double. That's Katra and Amie on the left (blue collar), and Cabana and Kona are on the right. Amie and Kona are our slightly pit-bull friends that look almost identical but have no blood relationship (but they do share the same owners).

Dagan is a very handsome boy. He and Cabana make a very cute pair. Love to see everyone playing and having fun. Thanks for sharing their outing.

SO Cute!! What a great bunch of dogs! Dagan would love to come out and play again (or he would if he were awake. He is currently sawing logs like crazy!)

Looks like a terrific day and Dagan looks like a terrific playmate.

What fun! You have a great social life, Cabana.
