Mango is a true Catahoula. He loves testing, testing, TESTING his boundaries. Highly intelligent and territorial, he's always on high alert in the backyard and house. He's always looking for a job. Anything that he thinks he can help me out with, he's more than willing to be right there to do the job for me. He follows me from room to room, just in case he is needed. If he could work two full time jobs, he'd be the happiest pup in the world! Mango is also the most determined dog I know. He REALLY likes getting his own way and he is super persistent and a punk-ahoula.

I love summer. I love swimming. I love my mom taking me to the park. I just love it. Mom keeps saying that rally obedience has really paid off cause I "listen" to her when we are out and about and around other dogs that keep wanting to play with me. I love going to the dog park and hanging out in the back field and playing fetch. I chase down that ball so fast so no other dog can get it, but then i take my time running back to mom. Mom laughs at me cause I guess I get this really intense, focused look on my face as I wait for her to throw the ball. NOTHING will distract me. I want that tennis ball BAD. Other dogs will come up to me and sniff me and try and get me to play by pawing at me, but I don't even notice them cause i keep my two eyes on that tennis ball!!!!!

And swimming...I love swimming. Who doesn't? Oh wait, my sister doesn't. My Aunt Sheila lives with my sister Novi and they try and get Novi to swim, but evidently she doesn't want to get her hair wet. A catahoula that doesn't like to swim?? it's crazy! We have webbed feet so we can swim!!!! Novi is just silly.

Mom told me today that at the end of August I get to spend 10 days with Aunti Moc!!! I love her! She's the best trainer in the world. I love going out ot her ranch. There are other dogs (but I don't get to play with them) and goats and chickens and so many good smellies. Mom said Moc might even teach me how to track. But I already track naturally, so we'll see what happens. I'm just so excited I'm wiggling on the inside. I get to spend 10 days of working non-stop. It's my dream come true!!!!

Well, the last two days, I've really shown mom and dad what a big doggie I've become! I've got muscles and I want to use them!!!!

First off, last night mom was sitting on some sort of extra large ball that she refers to as a "fitness ball." I really don't like this. Normally I just bark and bark and try and bite the ball, but last time she had me working while she did sit ups on it and so I sat patiently next to her. but last night I showed her how I really feel about the fitness ball! I saw her sitting on it and came running full speed for her and jumped on her and the ball. I was able to use my muscles so much that I knocked my mama off the ball! Then I was able to move in for the kill. I jumped on the ball and barked and then took one, big bite! Wah-la! Death to fitness ball!!!!

Later, when I played tug with my daddy, I was able to really show off my muscles!!! Daddy was lying on the ground hanging on to my toy and I tugged like normal. But then I turned on the juice and started showing mom and dad what I can REALLY do! So I tugged and tugged and dragged daddy across the floor!!!

Yep, I'm strong. They better not forget it!!!


Rally Obedience part II

I'm starting to really like this rally obedience that mom has been taking me to! I'm now used to all the standard poodles and they also bore me and so I don't pay very much attention to them anymore. I've figured out that if I do what mom asks me to do while out on the course, she gives me lots of liver treats! wooo-weee! I get so excited and I just wiggle when we are out there. Some of the stuff is kind of when we have to weave between these cones. mom doesn't give me enough space and I end up knocking over the cone and then the teacher talks about how many "points" would be taken off. Who cares about points? I'm getting food!!!

I did show mom something new about me though. The teacher tried to demonstrate something with me and I REFUSED to go with her on leash. NO WAY! She's not my mom! It really surprised my mom though cause I'm so friendly with everyone.

During our last class, we did our last run through on the rally course off leash! mom was up there apologizing to everyone in ADVANCE for me misbehaving! She has no faith!!!! So just to show her that I'm full of surprises, I was super good and stayed with her during the course while being free of the leash! I didn't try and go near the people or other dogs. I stayed focused on my mamma!

Woof! Woof!

High paw to all!
