Boot camp begins

"All my good dogs, COME!"

Yep, just what I expected. Obedience training began tonight for the little grunt. After a nice long walk off the leash to burn off some energy, I put it around her neck and started walking around in the back yard. After she figured out that any struggle was futile, she did pretty good. Not bad for a first day under the iron fist of her drill sergeant.

She's started "retrieving" socks and other things I've intentionally left on the floor. Yea, that's the ticket, my house is a mess because I'm training a dog! In a couple more weeks it should be time to clean the house and start with tennis balls and small bird decoys...that's right, a VALID excuse to take a trip to Bass Pro Shop!

Other than that, I'm still recovering from a long weekend with the boys. Sunday was spent on the couch in the fetal position watching golf. Good times though, good times. My spring fever is now in full force and I need a vacation.

Obedience training... such a pain in the neck (har-har!)... but so very necessary! It should be a bit easier having Molly as an example, right??

Awwww, so letting puppies run around willy nilly and flip over the back of the sofa is a BAD thing then?

Um, ok...

Note to self....

That is some kick ass grass you got there, Adam. Impressive.

Chickenhawk- I wish it worked that way! You have to start off at square 1 each and every time. The competition will help on the retrieving end though.

SFG- No, not a bad thing...sometimes you have to let them screw up and knock some sense into themselves.

Okie- Thanks, but its only winter rye. Its beginning to turn down in the heat.
