Arrival Story: I'm a RESCUE PUPPY My mommy met me when I was just a little mousie of a size at 2 weeks old. I was at a shelter where my sister volunteered at! My mom told my sitster that she wanted a little runt and they chose little me! Of course, they had to wait until I was older (8 weeks to be exact). They picked me up from the recieving center at the north shelter on a Saturday gave me a t-shirt and diapers and drove me home in a car seat. I weighed 5.2 pounds and had real bad kennel cough, so my mommy took me to the vet the next day and got me anti-biotics. I was perfectly fine after all my medicine and I'm now a happy healthy agility trainee.
Bio: WOOT PEEPS, I AM the BORDER RUSSELL SCHNAUZHUND I know what you're thinking...what in the name of D-O-G is a Border Russell Schnauzhund? Well, I'll tell you. It's a sheep herding, cat treeing, yard racing, all-day playing, agility whomping MACHINE! I am all those crazy breeds (Border Collie, JRT, Schnauzer, and Dachshund) all rolled into one high-drive puppy. I am the sturdiest lil' doggie you ever met! Watch me run, weave, jump, play, and at the end of the day RELAX (psshhht, that doesn't last for long tho).
DUDES and DUDETTES I am "The Air Up There" Abbey a future agility Champion (no batteries required).
The perfect agility dog: The pup who was the wriggler, the runner, and alert
The one that near destroyed your house and stole your favourite skirt
The one who learned commands before you said the words
The one who turned your yard of grass
into piles of dirt
The agility dog I want, be it pure or be it mutt
Is the one who drives me crazy
I love my psycho pups!
I am no longer one of the cadets in training, or one of the baby scouts...I am officially a Dog Scout of America. Look out world here I come. This opens doors for plenty of new opportunities and fun! I can earn other badges. I can become a therapy. I can get my CGC which only makes my doggie scouts certification all the more impressive. The test to be a Dog Scout is much more difficult than a CGC. We have to leave a live animal when asked, we have to leave food when asked, we have to do a whole BUNCH of things including all those sits, downs, and stays.
I was so excited when my sister told me I had passed. She sent in the forms for my bandana and badge right away! Now we're eagerly awaiting them so that I may wear my bandana around town and prove what a grrreat girlie I am. (some people don't know that, you know. I know it's blasphamy!!)
We had our first DSA meet up today. It was a blast! We got to learn new and different things and all though the doggies make me a little scared right now, I know I will get used to my new friends.
We worked on a few things that get us our Dog Scouts title and earn us our badges. Obedience, which I ruled the roost at; leaving food and other animals, ummm...that was a bit harder; and socializing with other dogs and people, I was pretty darn good! I got afraid when one doggie came up to sniff in my face, but I got used to her quick.
I made some great new friends who look JUST LIKE ME! I can't wait until the next doggie meet up.
Okay, so I went to a run thru today over at the training center. If you want to put a level on it from 1-10, it was about a 7.5. I started off great, did everything right and in the middle decided to run and go say "hi" to my little sister, Bella. Well, of course, I was called back and came instantly, but only did 6 out of 12 weaves WHAT?!, yep only 6. Mommy didn't force me to do more, but she didn't reward me either. She figured I wasn't doing them because I was hot and tired and it's one of the hardest obstacles on course. I refused to do the A-frame, so mommy didn't make me do it at the moment...I was having some problems with it anyway, but I DID THE TEETER and ran all the way to the END. We did the rest of the course pretty much perfect. After the other doggies got a turn to run, mommy brought me back to the A-Frame and weaves (you didn't think she was going to just let me duck out on 'em did ya?). She had me do all 12 weaves and rewarded me, then had me do the A-frame and rewarded me and had me do it again and again. We worked on the teeter too, and before we left, mommy had me do a six set of channel weaves and only rewarded me for completion. =D All in all, it wasn't a bad day, but this Florida heat was killing us. We left early, sweaty and bug bitten.
Mommy is going to buy another 6 set of weaves and add them to our other 6 set to make twelve poles so that I can practise on them. Weaves are my favourite obstacle, and mommy SWEARS the reason I ducked out on them was because I was too hot, either that...or I'd been so used to doing the 6 set in the yard that I didn't bother to do 12. Sorry mom =P.
