Hey there everyone. For those following by email this entry does have videos. To view them please go to my site or my youtube channel www.youtube.com/canadianlynx1.
There has been a minor change in what I was going to put up. Since I need one more entry for day 26 so our fair well to Leader Dogs will be tomorrow morning before I leave campus since I have hours to kill.
This morning was one last route to say good-bye to those annoying squirrels, dogs and strange people, lol.
I picked to do the “P” route as my solo last route. Luna did a great job and here are a couple videos for you.
First video check out Luna and I flying down the first leg.
Oh yeah, you also get to see the cool new jacket I bought, lol.
The next video is us going through construction. I like totally forgot that there was construction on this route and as we’re making our way down the road I’m like thinking “ah hell!” The construction guys were pretty funny too.
Now after the construction Luna and I came across to this *pissed off* dog. We were crossing a driveway and this growling, barking dog comes running towards us. Luna tries putting herself in front of me and at first I’m trying to keep her moving, but it wasn’t happening. The annoying mean dog is still coming, I’m like *oh fuck* drop my jacket and just hold tight to my dog. Luna puts herself in front of me and we wait it out and I’m wondering where Jessica is currently hiding hahahaha.
Finally Luna decides enough of this and I grab my jacket off the ground and we take off! *whew*
What a way to end training eh, get eaten by a *pissed off* dog.
Man, that Luna already shows that she can trick me. *grumbles*
One of the things I wanted to work on with Luna is recall while she was far away from me or off leash altogether. Well, Jessica gave me a 10 ft. long leash to practice with and Luna just would not stay if I got too far away from her no matter what. So today Jessica watches to see how things go and would you believe this?
That darn *brart* of a dog of mine did absolutely perfect! She didn’t get up once. She even stayed still while Jessica like dropped money in front of her and then went close to her wanting to pet her! Like really? I couldn’t get her to do that at all yesterday when it was just her and I practicing, and she just had to go and show Jessica I had *no* clue what I was talking about, lol.
This afternoon the Brazilians left for home. I wish all those guys the best and it was so cool getting to meet them and learning a little Portuguese.
Now I’m going to sign off because I seriously need to get some packing done. Anyone want to come do that for me? *sighs* I hate packing! Then I have to say by to even more friends at the god awful our of 6:15AM.
Tune in tomorrow morning for my good-bye message from Leader!
