Search and Rescue

This past weekend was a pretty good weekend. Friday mom and Chloe went to Manor Care for a visit, but I stayed home with dad. It was Chloe's turn so I couldn't complain.

Saturday mom did some spring cleaning in the morning, but in the afternoon she took us to the barn with her. She rode Sophie in the arena and on the trail and we got to go both places with her. We went through some really tall grass, way over my head, that I had to walk on my hind legs from time to time to find mom. She thought that was cute:) After we were done at the barn, we went to Home Depot with mom then back home where mom finished cleaning the upstairs.

Sunday was my search and rescue training. I did pretty good on the first search. I found my subject pretty quick and did better on my recall/refind. However, my second search I didn't do well at all. It immediately followed the first one, but I wouldn't range away from mom and my recall/refind wasn't there at all. Don't ask what happened cause I couldn't tell you. I had a pretty long break after those two before my next one. I did pretty good in finding my subject, but when I saw him, he was standing and that kind of got my hair up. I barked at him a few times then when mom said it was okay, I finally went in. I still wasn't too sure of him, but I did my job and mom was proud of me. Mom, Tiff and Erin also worked with me on my crate issue. I don't like when people come to my crate and especially if they try to pet me or open my crate. I growl, roll my lip and sometimes snap at people. Mom said we have to nip that in the bud cause that is not good behavior. So now whenever someone comes to talk to me, mom makes sure they give me a treat so I don't feel threatened. I'm not sure if I'll by that or not, but I'll give it a whirl.

I was really tired from my long day so when we got home, just slept. Yesterday mom had a migraine so I slept with her all day and was all the more happier for it. The good news is that my UTI is getting better and mom didn't make me wear a diaper for two days now and I'm happy about that. Let's keep our paws crossed that the increase in my Proin helps with my potty problem.

Well, that's about all for now. I'm not sure what's on the agenda for this week, but rest assure that if anything exciting happens, I'll tell you all about it. I hope everyone had a good weekend:)
