Howdy blogaroos! Squirmy put-that-pillow-down-now Wormy here on a super Saturday! Yup -we’re having a super duper time with our company! And I am trying my very very VERY best to entertain them. Keeping in mind that entertainment does not always equal good behavior…
So since Susan and Keith have been here, I have attempted to ricochet off them about 56 times. But who’s counting.
I have demonstrated my ability to circle the dining room table multiple times without stopping. While I am hanging onto Tuggie. I am encouraged to hold onto Tuggie because otherwise I just attempt to ricochet off people. Or bite them. So the Tuggianapolis 500 is encouraged.
I have also demonstrated that IF you leave the gate to the DFZ open by mistake, I am quick to steal throw pillows from the sofa and then race with THEM around the dining room table. You know the situation where a 2 year old acts out in a grocery store and a parent is left feeling embarrassed and helpless? Same story with a 17 month old PON and company.
While the two leggeds were eating birthday cake for Sue’s special day, I sat and stared at her, looking like a starving stray who hadn’t eaten in days. Sue looked at me and said “the last thing YOU need is sugar.” I’m not sure what she meant by that. I guess she meant that I’m sweet enough….
We did manage to squeeze in my obedience class yesterday, partly because when I come home I’m a TINY bit tired. I didn’t bite anyone or do any ricochets at class, so it was moderately successful. I think I would be a star in class if I had a different handler. But I’ll keep training her.
The other guys are behaving pretty well. I mean the Boss does bark out instructions to them, and the Coyote will sneakily leap on them from behind. Good thing they are family- they didn’t have to sign the danger waiver when they arrived.
I’m not sure what’s on the agenda for today, but you can be sure I will be right in the middle listening to any plans. I suggest more walks – but we’ll see….
Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe.
