Hi Friends! I am dead dog worn out. Training Bailie to pass her Obedience Class was a lot of work, so today I’m putting my paws up and letting little sis Bailie write her very first blog post! After all she is the one that experienced it all, so who better to write about it than her? I will be back tomorrow baking some yummy Valentine Luvcakes! Take it away, Bailie!
Bailie here at the keyboard for the very first time. I can’t believe my sister let me actually have my own post! I have the most exciting news to share with you! My class was cancelled twice because of our cold weather, but finally on February 6th, I got to take my exams and I passed Obedience 1! I was howling like a hound the whole night! I wasn’t perfect, but I went from class clown and most likely to fail to one of the best in the class. I did an awesome job and Mom was super proud. Emma was along and got to watch from a distance. She didn’t have to growl to correct me even one time! My strengths were rather unusual, down, and down/stay. Now I can finally relax and work on fun stuff like Nose Work.
Emma posted about my training a bit ago – how I was going to all kinds of places, including Mom’s office, to work on my obedience skills. Well, I tell you, I was seriously working like a dog. I had to go to the office three mornings a week for an entire month. What puppy does that? It was rough working at the computer, pawing through files, barking to banks on the phone!
Since Mom had to use our computer a lot of the time, I sometimes had to settle for one in the other room, but it had a nice big monitor. When no one was around I would google “wabbit” and look at all those larger than life wabbit photos. I got caught, though, drooling on the keyboard, and that was not a good thing.
