Black Pearls of Wisdom...

My Ball and Chain

So Burt and I have been going to training class at PetsMart. Every Sunday afternoon. For an hour. With our trainer, Trixie ;) Last week was unbelievable. The Mom and the Dad brought this thing called a "coupler". I heard them tell Trixie that they hadn't used it in nine years--since Perky went to the Bridge. Seems they would "couple" Remo and Perky together to slow Remo down on their walks.

Trixie had the big idea to "couple" my brother Burt's harness to my harness so he would feel more secure with me right next to him. I tell ya, what a pain in the back!!! Trixie would say "come Dixie", and me, being the star that I am, would immediately try to come. But this 50 lb furry weight of a brother wouldn't move. I had to drag him several feet until he got the idea and got off his butt.

When he got the idea though, there was no stoppin' him. He dragged me ALL OVER! Up and down the aisles. Quick turns. Plowing through crowds. Careening around corners. Bouncing off displays. He was UNSTOPPABLE! And they thought this was a GOOD idea???

Momma bought a coupler for Puff and I but Puff is so much slower than I am that it just doesn't work. I'm really glad that only lasted one day!!! Let him continue to walk behind me as that is where he belongs.

Duke did that to me a a parade!

Good thing we were out of town - how embarassing!

He out weighs me by alot!!!

I weigh 60+ and he weighs 110+ although I think he was around 100lbs when we were there....BUT STILL!!!

He wanted to crowd surf! He was a Hit and I wanted to hit him!!!

Talk about a trip. It was a long walk on a hot day and I fell asleep before I remembered to do it.
