Agility!

Dear diary-

Well, last night was the second class in my third Agility class...Well that sounds a little bit confusing...Well, I'm in my third 7 week class, lets put it that way! Last night Mom was very proud of me! My Agility pal is Daisy the Maltese and we are the only "small" dogs, and we always get to work together! So we got to start with the weave poles. I still need the wires on them, but I only jumped over the wires a couple times, after that I was going super fast through those poles!
Next up was the dog walk. You run up as fast as you can, walk on the thin board that is straight, then back down, but slower because at the end you have to "touch"- two paws on the dog walk and two paws off, still working on that one though! But I did pretty good, off leash I only ran past it one time, and the rest I ran right onto it and kept going!
Next was the hoops and pause table. You go through two hoops off leash and jump onto a table that is raised off the ground a little bit, then you sit or lie down and hold it for at least 5 seconds. This one is probably the hardest for me, but luckily I will not have to do the pause table in competition.
And finally was the hoop, shoot, and hoop. This, again, is off leash. You run through one low hoop, into the shoot, and the shoot is half a tunnel and the rest is tunnel but fabric so it is just like being under the covers but running, and then once you get out of the shoot you run to another hoop and go through. I did awesome on this!

Mom'll have to video tape me and the furless sister at Agility class one day and post it on here!

Sincerely,
Iz

 

Christmas!

Dear Diary-

As I'm sure you know, Christmas was a few days ago. This was my second Christmas but first one with Mom, and I loved it! The furless sisters got up early and opened their presents, Mom gave me a bone to go chew on but it took too long and I didn't open my stocking until right before the furless family had to leave to go see relatives. I got a Christmas bo bo (you know the toy in the Petsmart commercial, the long squeaky one?), lots of mini tennis balls, new treats to try, a sweater, a drawing of me jumping through a tunnel, a new squeaky toy, and a new food dish. Boy, I sure got a lot!

We took pictures of my drawing and will be putting it on my page. To be more elaborate on the drawing, it is of me jumping through a pink tunnel and the furless sister pointing to the tunnel. It was taken from a real picture of me at training class. An artist drew it for us and Mom let the furless sis have it in her room. So, all in all it was a GREAT Christmas!

Sincerely,
Iz

 

How do these things happen?

Dear diary-

Earlier tonight, Mom left me downstairs and she went upstairs to do some work. 5 minutes later she heard coughing and gagging. She ran downstairs and saw a string of yarn, then she followed the noise. The source of the noise, was of course, me- isn't it always me nowadays? When she got closer she saw the blue string in my mouth! Turns out I had taken out a ball of yarn from the furless sis's knitting bag and dragged it through 2 whole rooms! Mom retraced my steps, but she was really just glad she heard me. She still is not sure how it happened, but it did, at least she got to me in time!

Sincerely,
Iz

 

Groomer gave Mom a little scare!

Dear diary-

As you know, I went to the groomer today and I look pretty darn cute. But when the groomer called Mom she said she had found a BUG in my ear. Thats right, a dead BUG in my ear! Mom rushed over there and they said they thought it was a tick but it wasn't- but they don't know WHAT it was! We still don't know! Gave Mom quite a scare when she said they found such a thing in my ear.

And if that wasn't enough, Mom had to put me in a sweater and then my Christmas outfits on underneath the tree-my new favorite sleeping spot. They were pretty cute pictures and we are uploading them right now.

Sincerely,
Iz

 

Where am I at right now?

Dear diary-

I am at the groomers right now. Mom dropped me off an hour or two ago and she'll be picking me up soon. She told them to not cut too much hair on my head and not totally shave me. New pictures will be up later today! I'm off to go find a mirror now...

It just didn't happen!

Dear diary-

Well yesterday was my CGC test and I didn't pass. Mom was disappointed (not for long though, she just had to look into my puppy dog eyes) in me because they've been working on my manners and obedience for a long time and knew what I needed work on and we worked and worked but it just didn't happen for me. Mom doesn't know what happened and my furless sister (my handler) doesn't either. The next test is in Feb. next year and I have to work and pass it then, I guess.

Sincerely,
Iz

Dear Diary-

Mom's known it ever since she got me-I'm just too darn smart! A few days ago she came home and I ran to the door as usual, but she came in with bags and bags on her arms, she showed the furless sis while I was outside and then put them in the locked room. But not before I figured it out. There is definitely something in there that I want. So my new favorite spot is right in front of that door, waiting. Mom keeps saying I'll be waiting until November 20th till I can get something from in there, and then I will have to wait about a whole other month before I get the rest! Hmmph!

CGC Test- NEXT WEEKEND!

Dear Diary-

Today I went and got a mock CGC test because next weekend will be the real one! Mom isn't sure I'll pass, but there is always next year (there are four tests a year)! My sit for greetings are not the best, I am such a friendly little girl, instead of sitting still I run and try to jump up on the evalutor- instant failure. Other than that the evaluator said to work on my walking on a leash, but I was really just nervous, I don't need much work on that. But it was a really long class, it went from 2:30-5:00 but it really went over to 5:30 and I went at the end, so I had to watch about 6 dogs test before me, I was getting pretty bored, BOL! All in all I failed 3 sections, but during this week I will be going to the petstore and tomorrow I get to go to Dad's Mom's (Grandma!) house (all my Aunts and Uncles will be there too, lots of practice on those sit for greetings), she just got out of the hospital because she got sick again, so I have to be an extra good girl when I see her!

Well, since it is almost midnight we should be heading out!

Dear Diary-

Today there has been a storm. We told our pals we would keep a pupdate and this is the first time today we have been able to! Here was how my day went:

5AM: Woke up Mom by licking her face

6AM: After Mom got ready she fed me breakfast

6:30AM: Went outside after breakfast and got DRENCHED from all the rain

7:20AM: Go with Mom to take the furless sisters to school

8:00AM: Mom leaves to shop for early Christmas presents

8:00AM-10:00AM- Watch the rain fall hard and play with my brothers

10:00AM-1:45PM- Watch the news with Mom and see the trees that fell down on power lines and cars.

2:15PM- Power goes out

2:30- Went with Mom to get the furless sisters

3:00PM- Shopping for Halloween decorations

5:00PM- Photo shoot with my brothers, I didn't get pictures though because the head boppers wouldn't fit me :(

6:00PM- Play ball with Mom

7:30PM- See a German Shepard and Shih Tzu outside and bark like crazy at them, but they ran away before we could check to see if they were wanderers

7:45PM- Power finally back up and then I am on to pupdate my diary

So my pals, we are great and the only thing wrong with the storm was the power outage, which I'm ok with! We are praying for the people who had trees fall on their cars and who still have their power out, I hope you join me in prayer for all these people!

Sincerely
Iz

Dear Diary-

A few days ago Mom moved my account from the one with the rest of my family. We will put a link on my page soon of the rest of my family, but they were taking over the whole account! Hehe

Sincerely
Iz
