Happy Sunday to you~We are enjoying cool and windy fall weather today. Before obedience class yesterday, I ran to the pet store again to get a jacket that would fit him, just in case we were training outside in the rain. I will take some pics this next week and post them. Due to the heavy rain in the morning, the trainer had the class in her garage. I will take some pics this next week and post them. It made it so much nicer being inside and he actually got to do a little bit of beginner/basic agility that was aimed more at his gaining confidence rather than learning agility. That isn't too say though, that I wouldn't love him to learn some agility-I think it is great exercise for him and me. We continued to work on stay and wait, sit-stay(for 2 minutes) and leave it-with a hot dog no less. I never realized before that the command "leave-it" means they may never pick an item up or touch it-ever(this may vary with different trainers). In our case, it happened to be pieces of hot dog-you talk about temptation, but he seemed to grasp the concept. At home, those items I will work with him on are Kleenex and laundry, he loves to go into our laundry basket and pull out my items. So much of his antics are puppy, but I prefer not to have my undergarments dragged throughout the house. Hunter met two very nice cats and he was interested in them but didn't try to get them to play. The bigger dogs are learning that they need to be careful and gentle with our guy. Next week is our last class of this session and then we will start his next session sometime between Nov.-Jan. I am also teaching him "place"which can be a mat or a bed to go to, so he can wait to greet people until I've released him or to get him to stop huffing at the cabinet that holds his food. Sounds funny but remember this is the dog that sneezes at me to get my attention and believe it or not, he does huff. This week he will get to spend three days with Lilly, while hubby and I run to the mountains.
I will be checking in on you all but the condo doesn't have wifi so I won't be posting. I am hoping we do get some lovely fall colors and no snow-however there has been snow in the high country this weekend, so we will see.
I hope you have a wonderful day today; hubby had to go to the golf course early so I will be sewing and maybe doing some of my bible study.
Remember to seize the moment; life goes by to fast.
It's looking like Fall!
