Hey Di -
It's me Charks. As usual, I've been busy :-) Dad thinks I'm almost perfect... dad just sooo under-rates me. On Sat, mom was out of town and dad took me down to the local coffee shop to get a coffee and scone. The only problem was that dogs can't go into the shop. Sooo, dad put me into a sit-stay, looped my leash over a post and went in to get his coffee. I, of course, held my sit and we shared a bit of that scone to celebrate. Can you say 'Good dog, Charka!'?
On Sunday, dad decided to take me for a long walk past the big park. Actually, I helped dad decide by pointing myself in the proper direction when we got to the corner. I do automatic sits at curbs (Good dog, Charks!)... but I do sometimes indicate my walk preference. Weeellll, there were tons of people parking on the street and going to the park... so I got to show off my don't-bother-anyone walk... Good dog, Charka!
Then there was the toddler... the parents walked past us and the child was following, and just came running at my side to give me a pet before anyone could react. I did not react; nope. Good dog, Charka! [OK, I am very tolerant of children. I was certainly not surprised at my behavior].
And in agility, I did a couple of perfect weave-tunnel-hop-hop-teeters... dad gave me good treats and a big hug. I loved the treats... and dad hugs me even when I'm not 'Good dog, Charks!'.
There's probably more... dad says I'm have more and more times where I'm 'Great dog, Charka!'... I love dad... and hotdogs.
Talk to you soon Di,
Good-dog-Charka (that's me :-) )
