Well mom had another bad night so we all slept in. After we all had breakfast dad had to do inventory of the rv's in the park so mom decided her and I would go along. Dad helped mom put a couple leads together so we could practice for a hands free leash. Our trainer is making a custom one because I am too short and mom is too tall for the ones on the market. She has had trouble finding hardware that was small enough for me but easy enough for mom to use. Mom also wanted to collect feathers for a project she had in mind. So off we went me by mom's side as she used the gopher grabbers to pick up feathers and put in a plastic bag. Dad walked close by with his clip board. At some point mom got a vision of what we must look like and started laughing. I did very well and mom was pleased. She liked the idea of having more freedom with her hands. When we got back to our space I went inside with dad for a few moments. Mom came and got me and took me out to the patio. It was covered with feathers and other interesting stuff. Mom explained this was for my LEAVE IT training. This was so hard for me as mom says I have a feather fetish. We worked on this for a while and I got better. Afterwards mom got out the grooming table, I was so bummed. I am not sure if you know this but terrier's with my coat are hand stripped. This means plucking out the old coat for new to come in. Today it was my face, it seams mom thought it looked bushy. Of course after that then my feet looked bushy, so of course she did them next. Luckily she was tired so she left the rest of me alone. This called for a big nap until dinner time. Afterwards we went for a big walk and I did very well and now I am done for the day.
