Great day everyone! It is us, the ***attitude*** team!
Sorry you haven’t heard how we have been doing the last few days, but I didn’t want to write very small entries and decided to combine the last ones.
I believe I mentioned that miss Wren, the Christmas songbird and I technically finished training on Monday so have pretty much just hanging around beating each other up and having a discussion on who is top dog in this relationship.
Um, I’ll stil need to get back to you on that, ha!
Speaking of who’s the boss Wren believe’s that dogs in their own house, barking at her from a window is absolutely not allowed! lol,we got off the bus to do a route in front of a house that had a little dog in the window. The moment the little ankle biting dog started barking at Wren she turned and growled at it!
Like seriously. Thisdog of mine will ignore other dogs that aren’t named Sunshine, but will not tolerate other dogs barking at her from inside their nice warm house.
I can’t wait to see what she does with the little dog that lives next door to us who definitely barks a lot from it’s patio.
OMG, Wednesday morning was cooooooooooold! Who the heck turned off the heat? I actually had to wear layers for the first time while here. Just brrrrrrrrr!
We went to Target since some people wanted to do some shopping and it was a perfect time due to the cold to work more on inside work. But what the mean trainers didn’t mention until we were at the mall is that
Ooops, the stores don’t open until 9 or 10 depending on the store so my lovely humans and dogs you’re all going to walk outside from where we’re parked which is at Best Buy over to Target.
They are trying to kill us!
Carey got us going in the right direction and off Wren and I went. I was a little nervous because I was afraid that we would end up in the open area even thoughtrainers were spred out to help us out if we needed it. I was nervous because there are times that Wren is very subtle when she makes turns. But once again this girl showed me that we work great together no matter how demanding or how subtle she decides to be at times.
I had no clue when she took me around the carts or tables that were in our way. She went around them or hell even probably skipped them altogether. The only time I had to move her on her way is when she took me to stores that weren’t Target.
She didn’t even demand teats. Can you believe that!
I did give her one and lots of praise when we got past the open area and didn’t end up lost in it.
So, remember when I told you that I was going to teach my girl how to find pepsi for me? Well . . .
Hahahahahahah, once again what a coincidence. She did exactly that.
Linda helped me go find the blueberry pepsi and I couldn’t decide if I wanted to try the lime or the mango one and dlet Wren choose for me instead.
Guess what this girl did? She turned around and put her nose right on the pepsi lime. Pretty funny since the vanilla pepsi was next too it. It was just too funny!
Well, this was the final outing for everyone and the trainers decided that we were going to go back downtown. It worked out great because I wanted to know how tall the little songbir is because I could have shown that she is shorter than Luna my last Leader puppy. Ha, looks can be deceiving. Wren is 21 or 22 inches tall. It was hard to tell because Linda said she wouldn’t stay still long enough to find out for sure, lol.
Wren and I didn’t really go out on this lesson. I mainly went so that the class decided that we wanted our final group picture in front of the lion.
I’m hoping at the end Linda did record all of us, but I have no clue what you may have seen in the beginning.
I handed Linda my camera knowing that technology and her don’t get along. I turned on the camera and told her what to do and you can hear me say that part. What I didn’t know is that, hahah, darn go-pro cameras turn off the little screen after a few seconds so a sighted person can’t see through the window to see what they are actually recording. has to be some setting, but anyways.
Linda is like trying to figure out what to do and ends up turning off the camera. I know because I heard the tuns of beeps when it’s turned off. lol, then she starts pressing more buttons and I have no clue what’s being recorded. One of the awesome instructors or heck maybe even Linda got it working and
Well, hahaha, here’s how that turned out.
Our final group activity was Family Feud and it was
The Leaders vs. the Dogs
I just have to say that I thought some of the answers in the tv version of Family Feud made me shake my head and wonder where the hell they found these people were bad, but noooooo, try the game version. Those answers made me wonder more on what planet they were on asking these questions.
It was a whole lot of fun and a very close game, but in the end, The Dogs took the game on sudden death!
