Firstly, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one with a TP/Kleenex addiction, and I'm thinking if sooooo many of us have this "issue" then it's not US with the issue, but the peoples!!
Anyway, last night we went to school. It was dark and rainy and windy. When I got into class I was nervous and shaking a little bit, then the other doggies from my class showed up and I started wagging my tail and calming down.
I didn't really listen worth a crap last night when it came to "sits" mom had to tap my butt, but I was more aware of mom and not near as spazzy---until BOOM!
Thunder, big boom, lights out.
OMG I was in the dark with all these weird dogs (and Chewy, my shihtzu boyfriend)!! Mom had me and told me to stay calm. Finally the lights came back on and I was like "what the crap?!?!"
I started to shake a little bit again, but mom got me into walking pretty and I calmed down. I do really good at my sit/down stays. Mom can be 3-6 feet from me and I just sit there...mostly cause I'm looking around but I did watch her during some of her "watch me's!"
Afterwards the trainer said I was still doing great compared to how I was...oh and that' I'm pretty. So I licked her in the face. We only have four classes left before the TEST...OMG, I don't know how this is going to go. Guess mom will be dragging me out again this weekend to do some more outside/new place/Petsmart training.
Hope you have a great weekend!
