This morning mom and dad left to do a few errands and I stayed home. Mom does not want me to get used to going every time and she said she was getting her knee supports fitted and did not think I would be that helpful. In my opinion I am always helpful. Then they came home and picked me up and we went to Home Depot and Lowes. I did really well except for impersinating a hoover vacum cleaner. With my nose only an inch of the ground it is hard to ignore all these goodies. Our trainer said this is the next major thing mom and I need to work on. Mom uses LEAVE IT but I do not always or she is too slow and I am too fast. The trianer gave mom some drills and ideas for us to try. They had one area in home Depot that was a mess with all kinds of little tidbits on the floor. Dad followed behind and said mom was too slow and her corrections were to weak. Mom became frustrated and said fine you do it. Of course dad took me through and he was better and I did really well. Mom was irritated but happy to see how dad did it and it worked. Mom always says it is the handler not the dog's fault. So then mom did it and dad watched and She did better. We then headed home and the folks ate lunch and I had a rest. Then I saw mom getting ready and went and sat on the step so she could get my collar on easier. Mom looked at me and said okay if your up to it. Dad put the ice chest in the car and we went to the grocery store. We went to two stores and I did very well. I did solicet really bad from this one lady who kept straing at me and smiling. Mom got my attnetion and then we moved on. Most of the time I just looked at mom cause she had treats. We are now home for the evening. Mom said her legs and head hurt to bad for our evening walk. It is okay because I am wore out. I know we will have our evening task/game play time. We always practice the old ones and sometimes mom adds in a new one. I look foreward to it every evening and if mom forgets I always come and remind her it is time to practice. See as I said I am very helpful.

Good job! Sometimes it is hard for mom to hear how she does things wrong from dad, too. Does your mom or dad have a cell phone that can take video? If so, your dad could just video you and your mom, then your mom can watch the video and see for herself how to improve.
