Sunday Chase, Tatum, Muffit and Me went to flyball practice. It’s the first we’ve had since, probably, November of 2007. It was so nice to get out. It was warm enough for a T-Shirt, and it was fun to run around a bit!
Chase did great, as per usual. I’m thinking that I think flyball is easy because Chase is just a natural at it. Tatum.. on the other hand, she is going to be a handful to train. I really must start to seriously train her when we go out. Leaving the crate, she will have to focus on me because I am fun! And so she learns that we are working and we are learning. Instead of we are goofing off and bunny hopping around to see everyone. But she is just sooo cute, and I do want her to be herself and play too. My husband and I were talking yesterday.. we want her to have a good puppy hood. No idea how old she is, but she has so much puppy in her still.
(Don’t tell my Obedience Instructor I had Chase and Tatum in an Xpen at flyball practice… LOL but she reads this once in a while so nevermind… 😉 ). Anyway, so I want to see if Tatum will go over any jumps, so I set her up, someone holds her… I call her over three jumps… she takes one, then two.. then hop hop hop like a bunny and off she goes! LOL I died laughing she is so cute. Nope, we are not ready for that step yet. But that’s okay. She ran off, like a goof, said hi to other dogs and darted away from people. But I ran away from her and encouraged her to play, and she came to me and got lots of treats then off we went to play again. Because I don’t want to end the fun.. or she won’t come to me. I just want to make more, better fun!
Muffit also came with, it was is first big expedition out of the house. He barked a lot, he was stressed, and so over stimulated. But that’s okay… I will introduce him to the environments slowly, in his own time. I want to take him to the DOCNA agility trial this weekend but not sure how he will do. Maybe I’ll take him only one day. And I’m not sure all four dogs will fit in my car. Hrmph.
I have to take my car into the dealer… not for an auto insurance quote, but the air conditioner is blowing warm, not cold. And I need an inspection, emissions, and oil change too. Good to get it all done at once anyway.
