Um. That is just the hillside. Totally boring. I mean, where are the doggies?
Much better. Well, it would be much, much better if you could see more of us, and less of the road, but whatever. Mom wants to make the point that it's Fall. Okay, we got it, we got it. If you want to see tons of pictures of boring hillsides, just ask Mom - she took TONS of them. Seriously... We went on one of our walks, and Mom was fascinated with the hillside by the Olympic Park...
At least Mom wasn't so dazzled by the hillside that she forgot about us... We stopped by the park on that walk, and had some quality tennis ball time.
Even though the lighting looks a little different both of the above pictures are Abby. You know, the dog totally missing the ball! Heehee!
Me? I've got mad catching skills! Heehee.
I think Abby might have been having some tennis ball focus issues because she's been Vienna sausage-oriented as of late. She had another doggie class last Saturday, and she was a total suck-up
|What a suck up!|
And for those of you who are fans of Sherman (and you know who you are!), here's a gratuitous Sherman picture!
And a picture of our Fearless Trainer, and her sidekick Lulu.
I'm not sure if all that edjumacation has done much for Abby, though. Today we were at daycare, and she thought she was all clever by rolling in poop. When Mom came to get us, the daycare people noticed that my dear sister was, ah, a bit aromatic. Abby and I were taken into the 'self-wash' room at the daycare, where Mom had the last laugh. Armed with doggie shampoo, an apron, and lots of towels, Mom loaded Abby into the tub (three times, actually, as Abby felt the need to escape the first two times) and shampooed her. Me? Since I was the Good Dog, I got to avoid the whole Forced Bathing adventure. Alas, Mom has no pictures of this whole adventure, as she wrestling with Abby, the shower hose, the shampoo, and the towels. But even with the fancy-schmancy doggie shampoo, trust me when I tell you that I was the one who came out of the whole ordeal smelling like roses! Heehee!
After getting a bath, Abby came home and immediately felt the need to get rid of the 'clean' smell.
She's a SPAZ! But that's not news, huh?
After Abby was done with her spaz-out, we got in some quality zoomies.
And some bitey-face.
New-dog smell was totally eradicated! Heehee.
We've also been working on our weave poles, although Mom has been slacking (again), and hasn't gotten any video of our latest (and best) attempts at the weave poles. However, here is a super short video for Granny, so she can see the basic idea of what we're attempting. For the record, Mom's cutting out the hand-motions and is working on her technique, while I'm just getting speedier. We may even add the final two poles sometime!
Here's the link for those of you who get this via email: http://youtu.be/uN4XvGS09JA
We'll work on Mom to get some better video. And more pictures of us, and stuff! Heehee.
