School Supplies

Hey all. Sorry I've been away for a while, I gotta catch up on my blog reading! Nothing too exciting going on, no snow, no nothin. But it is finally warmer so I think the polar bears have gone into hiding!

I did have to go shopping today, for school supplies! I start obedience school Thursday night and at or-ee-in-tation the teachers told daddy I'd need the following:

-two toys just for class
-poop bags
-yummy treats
-a training bag to put all my stuff in

So, mom took me to Petco (since I hate Petsmart) and I got some new toys that I can't play with yet, they're only for class. Mom also got me a Natural Balance roll that she cuts up and uses as treats (very very yummy btw!). We already have tons of poop bags so we're good there.

While there we met a family. They were really nice. A mommy and daddy peoples and their little boy and girl. I liked the little peoples, I'm still not too sure about big peoples but I'm getting better. The little girl was petting me and asked mom my name, she said Anna and the little girl was very excited, her name was Anna too!

We hung out for a bit, then mom and I wandered around some more. We met this nice family again at checkout. Mom put me in a sit and the kids got down on the floor and petted me, then Anna gave me a hug making all the other peoples go "Awwwwww!"

They were very nice and mom kept saying I was such a good girl. Well duh!! I'm getting a little better about being around peoples I don't know. Mom hopes class will help with this.

Anyway, I'm kinda nervous about school on Thursday. Mom will be doing the training, but dad's going to go for moral support and photos! Yay!

Hope you're having a good weekend. It's bed time for me!


  1. Oh hi Anna! Hope you have a great time at class! You'll do just fine, I am sure! I go each Wed...Family Dog II. It's tougher than the puppy classes I went to, and LESS SNACKS involved. Grrr... Anyway, on our way to being very polite pals, right!!
