We had been living together for 2 years, we did not train him at all (our poor roommates!) and he was this amazing surly old man all the to the end. Now we have 80lb Lab mix, who doesn't realize how big he is. He is well mannered for the most part, we are not super trainers, but he has the basics down.

You can never hang out with Zero the Zombie Killer too much.

And some family tandem riding and touring happening, hopefully soon!
(Also, bear with me as I'm entertained with this whole Instagram thing.)
Stay tuned...
