Hey everyone, Happy Monday (hm, can one actually be happy on a Monday?)!
So, since it's the first of October, I just wanted to announce how important this month is...first of all, it's my birthday month (whoop, whoop), secondly it means that Halloween is just around the corner, thirdly October is National Pit Bull Awareness month, and finally October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month! Look at all these awesome events; I'll be writing more about everything in the coming weeks!
Well, as you are all aware, I went to my first class at the Humane Society for the mini-recall workshop on Sunday.
And...I have to be honest, I didn't enjoy the class very much! :-(
They are just very different from my normal school. They did not encourage and basically frowned upon the idea of letting us pups go and introduce ourselves to one another and interact on any level with each other. Do your schools do this too? At A Dog's Life, we go around the room and sniff each others' spots and (before class starts) we get to go up to one another and say "Hi".
Well, I didn't like this, not one bit, so I decided to bark! Yup, I threw a puppy temper tantrum right there in the middle of class. Unfortunately, the instructor didn't like this, so I was labeled a mini trouble maker. Oh well!
When we started the actual learning portion, I did really well! I focused on Domeek! I listened, I did, and I succeeded (except for another mini-bark session, when the instructor came over). So, even though we weren't loved...Domeek thought that we were an awesome team!
Next week is our second and final session, all I hope is that we come out with some recall skills and maybe I can eventually go off-leash! ;-)
When I got home, I totally passed out...using your brain sure is exhausting, let me tell you! :-D
This evening we are decorating for Halloween...yeah! I can't wait!
Have a great afternoon/evening everyone!!!
