Update on Dog Obedience Class

Monday Nov 13, 2006 06:27:00 PM

I went with Mom to the Ventura County Animal Shelter on Saturday for my first class in dog obedience... Mom didn't know I wasn't supposed to go to the first class 'cause that was training for humans ONLY!.... Geezie, peezie... I could have stayed home and taken my full afternoon nap!...

As it was however, I was on my best behavior and sat, laid down and slept in Mom's lap thoughout the hour... Well, at least I tried to sleep but there were two flies in the room and every time they got even a teeny bit close to me, I did my darndest to catch one!... Dumb flies!... Don't they know a dog's gotta take a nap every afternoon to stay beautiful???

Mom REALLY loved the class... (guess she needed more training that she thought, huh? )... The instructor was just too cool and funny - tons of information in one short hour - but Mom was really jazzed about the whole class...

The next day Mom took all FOUR of us to PetSmart to get choker collars, or in my case and Rogaine's, the nylon/choker collar 'cause I got a tiny neck and Rogaine has no hair... We're usually very good at PetSmart 'cause they got such great smells in there...

But there were puppies EVERYWHERE... And y'all know how I am about puppies... They're real posers, ya know?... Tiny like me but dumber than a box of rocks... Sliding all over the floor, whiddlin on the floor... One even left a puddle close to us and at first Mom was a bit upset about it until she realized WE didn't do it but that dumb ole puppy did it... Whew!... Thought she was gonna give us that look and tone in her voice, but the puppy wasn't too bright the way he did it... He just squatted down and let it flow like the water hose out back...

Mom had her hands full fitting all four of us for those new collars... But we got her back for disturbing our day like that... As she's trying on one, the other three of us were going this way and that way until we managed to go around her legs in different directions... Finally she had to take her flip flops off just to untangle her feet from our leashes!... But she had the last laugh - she just stepped down on our leashes so we all had to sit and behave ourselves!... Must be that new dog obedience class already working its magic, huh?...

I don't know what's going to happen next Saturday, but Mom's real excited about it... She tells me that she's gonna come up with a special treat for me to put in that little white can she was given... She did try and give me one of those Charley Bear treats, but Lordy, Lordy!!... If she thought that was a treat, I need to look up that word in one of those human dictionaries and show her the definition of it... I took one whiff of it and turned my head... A "treat" is spaghetti... Wonder if she can fit that into the little white can???

We've all been put on treat rations around here anyway since Saturday... Mom heard we're now supposed to 'work' for our treats... What's with that?... We're supposed to be the spoiled ones around here...

Well, I gotta go now... Mom just washed all of our beds today and Rogaine's in mine already smelling it up on me! Stay tuned - I'm SURE I'll have more to say about this class in the future!

Love, Peanut
