"I'm Battling Man!" I was later corrected that he was BADdling Man ("You hear there's a "bad" in it? That means I'm BAD.")
Upon seeing our new training stick for Brie, Miles wanted to help us understand how to use it. He did so not by using the stick directly, but by role playing as a dog so we could use the stick on him. "ARF! ARF!"
