Lesson 2b--Back to Basics

An earlier post that Silver was improving in the obedience department was wishful thinking.

Silver Flirts

She's still adorable and charming as all get-out, but when we practice the obedience lesson--and we practice twice a day--she clearly doesn't get it and just stands there. She looks off in the distance in the classic I know you want me to do something but I don't know what it is so I'll just stand here until you get a better idea attitude.

I've emailed her instructor. Jen has an agility competition with her dogs this weekend, so I'm not expecting to hear from her right away. Meanwhile, Silver and I will do the Marietta Farmer's Market Meet & Greet tomorrow: she knows how to work a crowd.

I think there's probably a parent-teacher conference in my future next week.

Meanwhile, folks, don't forget that there's an auction to benefit the adoption efforts of SEGA over here.

She IS adorable! I bet she can get just about anything she wants with that face.

I've thought of a way to try to change-up the touch-the-cup exercise. More info tomorrow...
