Hi Di -
It's been another long while since we talked. I am a happy dog. I got my UKC Junior Jumper in dock jumping. I was the jumpingest GSD out there :-) And I'm still doing really well in agility... trials coming up. I train for real a couple times a week and do fun runs on Sat. If you ask me, they are ALL fun runs.
It's summer and we do a lot of walks... and I still do automatic sits at the curbs. Lots of people ask dad how he gets me to do that with no words and a loose leash. Dad just smiles and says 'Good dog, Charka!'. We also walk through the park where there are lots of people. I keep my mind on walking (and squirrels, of course) and don't pay any attention to all the distractions ('Good dog!'... that's me). Dad uses 'gee' and 'haw' to adjust my line so I won't trip or scare anyone.
Dad loves to walk through the woods near the wolf enclosure at the zoo. Sometimes the wolves walk with us (inside their fence, of course). They are big and doggish... mostly I just look for rabbits and squirrels... and moles (did I mention I'm really good at catching moles?).
Otherwise, since it's summer, people are throwing water all over their lawns. I LOVE spraying water... almost as much as I like big pools of water.
Anyway, got to go. It's time for another nice walk. I hope I can convince dad to do the looong walk. We'll see.
Talk to you later, Di.
