I took today off of work! Yippee! One reason was just to take a break, and the other was to do some doggy stuff. John and I headed out for Panera Bread for breakfast. I asked for a chocolate chip bagel, but the guy gave me a cinnamon sugar one. I usually correct mistakes, but I actually like this bagel, so I kept it.
Then it was time for me to do Pre-novice obedience. Remember when Storm and I graduated obedience? Colleen asked if I wanted to do Storm at this show. It is somewhat informal. Since I was unable to work with him this last month (thank you, back) I decided to go for exhibition only, which meant I could correct Storm in the ring.
It was basically walking on lead:
Figure 8s (around people):
stand for exam:
The judge telling me Storm was being very good:
First section done. Then we got a slice of pizza because I was sta-harving at this point. Not as good as John’s from yesterday, but when you are hungry anything tastes good.
Then it was time for the group long sit and lay. The dog has to sit for 1 minute while you are at the end of the lead.
I have my arms crossed because that is going to be Storm’s ‘stay’ command. He did good for this, except he should be straight and looking at me instead at other things. At least he stayed still.
Then it was lay down and stay for 3 minutes. Long time for a dog.
Storm started getting up after about a minute, so I just had to mash him back into the ground.
Lots of other doggies at this show. Let’s see how many of these you know. Answers will be at the very bottom.
A) Remember what kind of dog Storm is?
Storm did really well for me, especially since we had an extended break! He was a very good doggy.
Got home and had another snack, because that pizza didn’t last long. Hadn’t had enough protein for the day! So I made 1/2 of a lavash wrap with laughing cow, apple slices, and cooked ham cooked in a pan.
Yum! We stopped at the smokehouse and stocked up on meat. It is so worth the trip there because everything is fresh, local and inexpensive!
Then it was latte time.
I was feeling pretty snacky today. Like bottomless pit snacky. So, I had a pear before dinner.
Usually when it is hot I lose my appetite, but not today. 85 degrees out, can you believe it? And we had snow on Tuesday.
Dinner time was some breaded pork that John cooked the other day.
With hot sauce. 85 out and I am eating hot sauce??
I have to say it feels great to have a day off of work! I love not working on Sundays 😀
Think we might go shopping tonight and get some shorts for John. His are all too big now. Maybe I’ll get some more for me, too
Here are the breeds:
A) Clumber Spaniel B) Dandy Dinmont C) Italian Greyhounds D) Cane Corso (Italian mastif)
