It is very hot outside, 721 dog degrees, but Mom and I still went down to Lodi to practice obedience and Rally. We had a ring time to go practice obedience first.
I was pretty happy to get to Lodi, and I was busy using their network to send pee-mail when SUNDAE arrived with her mom. I LOVE Sundae. She is the girl of my dreams. She’s a beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog, and I LOVE her. I wanted her to know I was interested, but she was kind of aloof.
I had to lick the ground she walked on. Mom told me to stop because I was embarrassing myself, but I could not stop. Sundae is so beautiful. I know her coat wasn’t as beautiful as normal because she had puppies, but she was perfect. She was hanging out in her ex-pen outside the obedience practice ring. I had to keep watching her.
Mom decided I had to practice recall FIRST, and I did. I ran right to Mom next to the exit, and I did NOT leave to go see Sundae. I was hoping she was watching so she could be impressed by my skills. I know she’s won a million titles, so it would be hard to impress her, but there’s no harm in trying.
Anyway, I did well on all of the obedience work. I sniffed just a little, but I would have gotten a qualifying score if this had been a real show.
Next we did Rally outside. I really wanted to sniff the grass and the fence near the first few signs, but once we got past that, I was on track. I did my jump; I did stand/stay. I did figure 8 and spiral. I even did 90 degree left pivot. That is not easy. I got lots of good treats, but Mom said no matter how I did, I was not going to get to go hang out with Sundae.
I think I’ll see if Mom will enter me in the show down in Lodi in September because I’m sure Sundae would be there. That would be better than Reno, for sure.
