  1. WAIT . . . . please

    March 27, 2008 by MyEye


    This is the weekend.  Kip and I are entered in our first two obedience trials to earn legs toward his CD.  It’s a German Shepherd Specialty show with all breed obedience and rally.  We’ve been training in our Club building, but these shows are in a park (about 3/4 of a mile from my home).  So, we’ve been going to the park every day to practice in all the distractions that parks offer.  One of our READ children came by Tuesday — had to hug Kip and watch.  That was difficult for him to ignore.  Today some sneaky Parks and Recreation employee turned on the sprinklers while we were practicing a recall — there’s a test!  Though neither of those things will probably happen at the trial, there will be something — one of his doggy buddies will be next to him on the long sit and down, or I’ll drop him where some child lost part of a hot dog.  Kip, WAIT, please!
