A little dog in a big dog's world

I guess this is home

So the crazy lady came back again tonight. She stayed and chatted with my people a bit, then my people all gave me lots of hugs and kisses and told me the crazy lady is my new mom! She's pretty cool, I guess. She brought those tasty treats again, so I guess I can't complain!

She put me in her car and we drove into the city. Once we got there and to a small little house I got to meet my new brother! HE IS SO BIG! Oh my goodness, he is big and loud and fast ... holy moly! But he seems nice enough. We sniffed a lot and did the meet-and-greet thing then we went inside the little house and my big brother (his name is Gio) went and got a toy and tried to get me to play! I was more happy just following him around everywhere, though. He barked a few times and it kind of scared me, but I could tell it was just play barks so I was brave and tried to do some play bounces in his direction.

We've been outside in the back yard (it's a lot smaller than what I was used to but looks like fun anyways). Now we are both about to lay down for a nap in mom's room. I have a crate all to myself, and I've already checked it out!

Mom said that tomorrow we are going to go to some place called PetSmart and get me a collar and car harness and leash in my own colors (Gio has blue and green). Then I get to go meet some of mom's friends at the university. Wow! This is gonna be fun!

 

My First Flyball Lesson!

I just got home from my first flyball lesson and am completely pooped! I fell asleep on the car ride home, woke up briefly to have a tiny dinner than ran to mom's room and fell asleep on the bed BOL

Class was so much fun though :D I got to meet lots of other dogs, and most of them were even close to my age and size! Then mom and I worked on some directional stuff and she introduced me to a jump. By the end of class I was doing AWESOME and she was even able to send me away to do a jump a few times ... Just a few feet and I was still on leash, but I thought I did pretty good anyways!

At home, I always play with a regular sized tennis ball. I LOVE TENNIS BALLS and will fetch and fetch and fetch for ages! But tonight mom let me play with a little tiny tennis ball. I didn't know what to do with it at first ... it smelled like a tennis ball, and was the same texture as a tennis ball but it was so much smaller! But mom tossed it around a little bit and I finally caught on. WATCH OUT! I'm all over that tiny ball now! I was even able to catch it in my mouth a few times, something I have never been able to do with a regular sized ball. Mom brought the tiny ball home and we are going to practice catching and set up a few low jumps in the back yard to work on my jumps, too.

PHEW! That was hard work ... but I think I'm going to like this game!

 

Rally-O

Well tonight I learned what Rally-O is! Gio has been telling me that it is really fun, but I could never really figure it out. Tonight I had my first class. Mom thought I would be a challenge compared to Gio (The Show-Off), but I proved her wrong!! She thought I would be difficult to lure around and maneuver on leash due to my previous training for conformation work. But I caught on really quickly and by the end of class had pretty much figured out the little things she was asking me to do. I'm starting to catch on that she wants me to heel close and look at her instead of heel further out and look straight ahead like I was taught for conformation. I also sorta figured out that "get it" means I need to move to mom's side and sit nice looking straight ahead. I even did better than the cute little poodle that had done Rally-O before! YIPPEE!!

I think I like flyball better, but this is pretty fun, too. And I like being able to work with mom without The Show-Off hogging the spot light! BOL

My good buddy, Yippy, tagged me!

Here are the rules to this game-
Give 4 answers to the following 4 questions, and then tag 4 other pups!

So here goes:

Name four jobs that you've had.
1. Toy Rescuer. I am sure to snatch any toy from the deadly grasp of Gio. I'm a hero!
2. Comedic Relief. Whenever things are too calm, too quiet, or too tense, I jump in to save the day with some goofy antic!
3. Garden Inspector. I patrol the garden and promptly dispatch of anything that dares threaten the safety of the plants. Even if it means moving heaps of earth to ensure their safety.
4. Lint Roller. I drag my nose along the ground and pick up all bits of fluff, lint, string, or hair. Gota do my duty to keep this place clean!

Four places you have lived.
1. In British Columbia with my fur momma and my breeder.
2. To Saskatoon but still with my fur momma.
3. In Saskatoon with my current mom and big brother Gio!
4. Haven't lived anywhere else.

Four places where you have been.
1. To Regina, Saskatchewan for flyball tournaments and rally-o seminars.
2. To Battleford, Saskatchewan for a rally-o fun match.
3. I haven't visited anywhere else yet. But I will be going to Lloydminster, Saskatchewan next weekend for a flyball tournament.
4. I will also be going to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan in two weeks for a rally-o trial.

Four places you'd rather be.
1. At the training building with all my rally-o or flyball buddies, playing some Bark 'n Chase.
2. On a walk in the park with mom and Gio
3. Curled up on my special bed next to mom's computer desk.
4. Cuddled up with Gio and mom on the couch.
