Woke up and the sun was out! Whooooop whooooop!! The high hit 61 degrees! Unbelievable! Mom took us for a walk. Once again I was on the short lead and had to walk next to mom. Awwww come on! I wanna walk over there and over there and over there! Come on mom !! Well we got back and mom took us to the playground. Guess what? The snow was almost gone and I got to chase my chuck-it ball! Mom took us in and fed us breakfast. Then mom and dad went to the store. Me and Darcy took a quick nap. When mom and dad got back we went back to the playground to play again! Yippeeee!!! I got back in the house soaking wet and muddy, but very happy! Had on my best and biggest pibble smile..

Mom and dad had to work tonight. The clouds came not long after they left. Now me and Darcy are on the big bed chillin. Waiting for the rain to start tonight...

 

Diary Pick of the Day!

Thanks HQ! I love being Diary Pick of the Day! Since we've been to our first CGC class, mom has been making me walk right next to her. No more in front for me! At least for the next 6 weeks! :) I'm on a 5' lead (might as well be 2') and must walk like a good boy. I'm doing better every day. I think I know what she wants. Now we've got to work on my down. I hold out for mom to use treats and she does! The teacher told her to stop that and go NILIF with me! Oh boy! That means I now sit before I eat, down before I go for a walk. Geez, it's like I HAVE to do something before I get a treat! Sometimes I don't get a treat, I get a chest rub. I like them also!

 

CGC Class

Well mom and I just got home from my first class. Mom likes this trainer alot. She said, she's so different from the last trainer and wishes I had done my STAR class with them. But, moving forward... There are 4 other dogs in this class - 2 people didn't show up. A newfie, Dillon; a German Shorthair, Carley; a Golden Retriever, Lela; and a labradoodle, didn't catch his name. When mom was signing in, the trainers husband took me for a walk around the place. He was a really nice guy and I liked him alot! The trainer told mom that Dillon, the newfie, has some dog reactive. No problem. Well it was a problem. I'll explain in a minute.

So we all sat down and the trainer asked us to do a few things to see where we are in our training. Sit, handle your dogs ears/paws, walk on a loose lead and leave it. Sit, I've got down no problem. Handle ears and paws - love it! Leave it, I'm not bad at either. Walk on a loose lead - what?? in front of all of these new people that I can't stop looking at!? Well the trainer came over and had something wonderful in her hand. OMG what is it I will follow you anywhere, sniff, sniff!

Then the trainer said something to mom and boy did it click. Mom told her about having a reactive dog before and this class is just as much for mom as it is for me. That mom wants to learn how to read/talk to me. The trainer said, you had a reactive dog, you were focused on what was around you so you could redirect and control. You need to focus on Grunt (me!!) and realize he is nothing like your other dog. Well mom took the yummy smelling thing and walked me all over by my nose! It was fun. Mom was giving me so much praise that I started to prance! Yea!! We're off to a great start! Mom's doing really well in my class! :):)

 

We're good again,,,

Mom came home and I made sure she knew that I was sorry and that I love her. I kept looking at her with sad eyes. Mom finally sat down and I crawled up on her lap and gave her a lick that I was sorry. She gave me a hug and said it's alright.

Today mom took us for a walk, she slipped and slid all over the road. When we got back she loaded me and Darcy in the suv and went to the post office. She had a package that needed to get to grandmas right away. We went to the bank first, then the post office. I got to see a few nice people while mom was in the post office.

Got back to the house and dad was plowing the snow around the mailbox. We went up to the house and mom took pictures of the avalanche. Oh yea, at 4 am the snow fell off the roof. It was loud! In the morning mom looked out and the snow was 1/2 way up the railing. It even broke a few sections free. What a mess!

 

Sorry, mom :(

I got diary of the day! Mom has been so busy she didn't check the computer until 11:15 pm!! Geez! So for my day today we played in the playground. We were sitting under one of the big blue spruces and the wind picked up. It was swirling the snow. I wasn't sure about it and kinda got close to mom. Darcy was getting freaked out, she hates the winds after Hurricane Ike. She was right under mom's arms. I nudged in as the wind blew the snow right over us! It was scary. Mom got up and ran us across the playground. We still have about 15 inches of snow and I antelope hop to get through it! Darcy walks behind mom as mom trailblazes a path. :)

Then mom said we stunk and gave us both baths! What??!!! It's cold outside... well that didn't work and we both got baths anyway. Mom dried us off real good and said that her and dad were going out for dinner. Darcy and I were glad to see them go. After a bath we like to take a nice long nap!

Well mom and dad made it home and got me some new toys from Petsmart. I saw some other little bags, but mom said they're for next week when we start class. Hmmmm, wonder what they are! ???

 

Baby it's COLD outside...

Mom didn't take us for a walk today. The wind chill was 16 degrees!! Mom said come on guys lets go for a ride! Ride??!! RIDE??!! SURE!! We hopped in the truck and away we went. Mom took us to town so she could mail off a bunch of packages. She left the window down for me so I could sit and smile at everyone! Then we went to the Courthouse so mom could get our licenses for 2013. Now we're legal again in the County! When we got home mom took us for a loop around the playground. That was about all we could handle it was way to cold. But me and Darcy took full advantage of it and played and ran the entire time! I stopped for a couple of digging sessions along the way first! Then mom took us in the house to play. When I decided I didn't really want to play mom said come on Grunt let's see how much you know. I walked along side of her, watching her. When she stopped I stopped and sat next to her. Even did some downs for her. I'm a smart boy! Mom said we've got to work on my downs more. That I've got to do them without treats. Huh?? Where's the fun in that??

 

Off to a great start!

So it's here 1/1/2013!! Yipppeee! Mom said it's a great start to the New Year! Mom read the news and was cheering! Turns out they passed one of the toughest Dog Fighting laws in Michigan! Up to 20 years and $100,000 in fines! This is fantastic! We're so happy!! Mom HATES dog fighters, anyone involved in dog fighting and breeders of fighting dogs! Finally one up for the dogs! :):)

 

Happy New Year Everyone!

I just wanted to wish all of my Dogster friends and Families a Happy and Safe New Year! Mom keeps saying that she's declaring 2013 the Year of Tie Die and Smiles! :):) I think mom may need some medication! Her brain is frozen from all of the snow!

 

Run, run, run!!

Mom let me and Darcy stay in the playground while she plowed the driveway on the 4-wheeler. We had a blast! Darcy and I ran almost the entire time! Mom would go up and down the driveway, me and Darcy kept up with her! It was great! I did manage to rip my new jacket. I rub the fence, it drives mom nuts! I got a few holes in it, now it's perfect!

I'm pretty ooped out now. We ran for almost an hour straight! So much fun! Mom let me stay outside with her when she plowed behind the house. She started her truck and I jumped in to listen to the music. Mom moved the truck and I chase Darcy around the back yard - again! Mom said Darcy got an awesome workout today because of me! Glad I could help! :):)
