We love us some TWooie butt! Because when we see it, it means the TWoo is having a Superfantastichappyday time!
In a cavalier disregard for desensitization protocols that would make Nickelsmum blow her stack, I decided it was too nice a day to stay home, so we all went to the doggie beach. I am pretty sure, being he is from Northern BC, this is the first time TWooie has ever been in the ocean. He reacted with a lot less alarm than the first time Dexter – my coastal baby – went into a body of water.
TWooie sounds like a horse when he clop-clops through the tide pools. When he *runs* through them, he sounds like a water balloon exploding. He’s losing weight, but he’s still reallllly fat.
The great thing about East Beach is its vast expanse, so we could easily avoid other dogs. Except for the ball-stealing Belgian Shepherd, who traveled a looong way to come over and nick one of my tennis balls. I managed to convince TWoo he didn’t need to kill the thief, and he was very pleased with his own self restraint.
It was such an uneventful beach trip I don’t even have anything really interesting to say about it.
Piper’s 2X2s are coming along very nicely. She still gets all squirrelly in the brain when I try to introduce a secondary obstacle before the weaves, like a jump, but we’re now getting about 90% correct entries, even off side. This is promising stuff! I may even train Wootie on the 2X2s.
*waits for you all to stop laughing*
*continues to wait, taps foot*
So our first Woo-Off was a smashing success, and all the prints are now sold! I hope if you like what you saw, you’ll consider hiring Laughing Dingo Studios to do a customized piece of your four legged friend. Don’t forget to tell her the Food Lady sent you.
It’s time for another round of 2X2s with Piper, but before I go, I wanted to tell all you red dog fans about this stellar creature we have in rescue right now.
This is Cooper:
Isn’t he just so good looking? He’s just a year old, athletic as all get out, very keen on the ball and good with other dogs. We think he’s be an outstanding agility dog, and so flashy it’ll make your stomach hurt. He’s located in North Vancouver and he’s waiting for YOU to adopt him today! Check out his profile on our website, and when you can no longer sit on your hands to keep yourself from firing off an email about him, contact us about making him your next best friend!
