I'm Just So Very Busy





I am a busy little dog. Yes, both kinds of busy. I investigate everything and that includes grabbing and running with the abandoned shoes that I find in her closet and hunting for squirrels in the backyard when I think she’s not noticing. But, I’m busy in another way too. She’s signed me up for agility classes and rally classes. Two nights each week, we go to class and the other days we practice so much stuff that my head begins to spin. This is a lot of work for me considering I didn’t know what a leash was all that long ago, I wanted to stand on the kitchen table all the time, and tried to swallow everything I saw. Things I nearly swallowed included pieces of paper, washcloths and bottle caps and bait (small delicious dead fish heads) left on the waterfront, but I was foiled every time. That's mostly behind me and now, I tug politely on my tug toy, down when she asks for a down, walk backwards (why she wants this I’ll never know), balance on a puffy round ball, and run into my crate whenever I hear the word crate. I’m so much better behaved she said, but I do find time to squeeze in the shoe stealing stuff even though I’m told this isn’t part of my new training plan. You see, this is all part of being very busy little dog.

Audie, you're totally good at the rally stuff. Dude you didn't tell me about the shoe thing, *I* do that too! I don't chew them apart I just take them out of her room if she leaves. Sometimes I make a monster shoe pile in the living room. Pisses her off hahahahehhe.

See you Sunday for more rally school!

Audie,

Are your knees fully recovered?

Us pibbles enjoy working, participating and resting with our favorites. If I'm not mistaken, that looks like you are on a bed and you know shoes don't belong on the bed.

So from my exerience, you are either asking your people for a 'pajama day' or your telling them 'no ones leaving w/o me'.

Do your Agile-Rally on and I'll check back,

Boris

Hey - I make shoe piles too! When Mom leaves I stack them in the living room in front of the TV. And sometimes before she goes to works Mom begs me to help her find a pair that matches. But I know if she can't find a matching pair she can't go to work!

It must be a pittie thing!
