Mom took me to this place called Zoom Room today. I got to go all by myself, but wif Mom too. Lexie stayed at home.

It was a whole room for dogs. Mom said I was havin' what they call an E-valuation. There was a black rubbery floor an all these 'gility things in there. There was a lady named Gretchen an her dog named Elliot. Elliot is some mix of poodle, an this an that. He was very friendly an he was white wif black spots like a cow. He was also very big an tall.

Elliot showed me how to go through the tunnel. I peed against the tunnel.

Then Elliot got all up in my beard an tried to play wif me an I pooped on the floor, all of a sudden like.

That's when I tol Mom I had nuffa that. Gretchen put Elliot away an then it was jus me an Mom an Gretchen, sittin on the floor. Gretchen tried to give me tasty treats. I took a couple, but then I decided I jus din wanna be there anymore. I would not take anythin more from the Gretchen lady. Mom gave me treats an I din even eat those at first. But heck, treats is treats so I started eatin 'em when Mom gave 'em.

Gretchen said maybe I wasn't gonna do so well in a classroom sitchuation. There is somethin called a Calm Dog class that Mom wanted me to join. Ha. I shook like as if it were thunderin outside and got the Gretchen lady to say maybe I was not ready for that. It's not like I don hear Second Child sayin' how borin' school is an how he don wanna go. I'm not stoopid.

I got the rest of the treats from Mom on the drive home.

Buddy, sounds like you had a tough day. I don't like going where there are strangers. It makes me shake too. Mommy told me once that I was a sissy dog but I beg to differ! Maybe your mommy won't make you go back to that place. The "zoom" part sounded fun though cause I like to do me some zoom zooms when I go outside. I bet another dog is gonna pee right where you did. Grrr!

Yes, Z-Pup, I get treats sometimes. I don think I need to go back there jus for those. You make very good sense to me.
You shake too Baron? Well, I am in good company. I don think I wanna go back. I can zoom in my own yard like you do, thank you very much. I will jus be homeschooled!

(P.S. Mom called me a wuss. Lexie says that is jus like a sissy, only spelled diffrent)

Yeah, I shake if it thunders,getting groomed,mommy getting ready to go somewhere. Oh and if I'm in the truck with mommy and she pulls in somewhere, I start shaking,whining and barking. Mommy calls me a wuss too. Hmm, now I know what it means. Not nice mommy!

long time, no bark from you.......

Buddy sounds like a very rough day.....I think, I would have been the same way. Cuz, I've never been around other pups.... Mostly because of where we live. I know you'd be good at the games, so would I. How do we get past the Fear of an area that has no comfort zone????????

Glad you had some good treats out of the deal..And of course a ride.... You do like to ride,don't you?????? Happy Valentine's Day. kisses,mazy

Aww, man. That's too bad. I bet you would get better if you could go back a couple-a times.
