Okay, yesterday, I snagged an onion skin in the produce aisle, but hey, a girl slips from time to time.
But TODAY, I got to be a rock star! Mom and the Boss and I went to a mall. So much stuff going on everywhere which confuses Mom. All I have to do is stay with her. She may be all weirded out from everything going on around her, but that's because she's tall. I'm low to the ground, so my business is putting one paw in front of the other and reminding Mom where the ground is.
We went into different stores, one that sold candles. The candles smelled so strong I started sneezing. Mom didn't like it either. The Boss wanted to buy some, so Mom and I stood outside.
Then the testing started. Lots of stays, some recalls, some down/stays with Mom and the Boss disappearing while I had to let people walk by in front of me. Mom and I stood right in the middle of the mall where there were people going every which way with kids hopping and being silly and strollers and people swinging big bags in front of my face as they walked. We did elevator up, elevator down, lunch, in and out of stores where Mom walked so close to the clothes that I had to step behind her to not touch them. Then the Boss found a shiny black floor with the sun reflecting off of it and figured THAT would throw me off. HA! It didn't.
Then we walked outside and Mom took my vest off. I let out a happy bark and Mom thought I shouldn't, but the Boss said, hey, she's just celebrating a job well done. I wiggled all over the place and let both of them pet me while I talked a little bit (used my inside voice even though we were outside).
When we got back, the Boss still hadn't filled out the test form. She just signed it and told Mom "yeses and ones". Mom was almost dancing on one toe she was so proud of me. They are both proud of me and nothing makes me happier than doing a good job!
Pee-ew, those candle stores make me sneeze, too! And daddy can't be caught anywhere near those things. Great job on your testing!
