(For the record, Maggie and I both love other dogs, but Maggie is a bit too exuberant for this type of work. I like to play, too, but as a former show dog, I know when to play and when we're working! I've also had two litters and am extremely good with puppies!)
OK - so Mom and I set out to meet everyone at the park! I ignored Flynt as best I could, then also met Moss, and was good at ignoring him, too. We went on a nice walk together, ignoring each other along the way, and being calm. After our walk, Mom asked us all to sit so she could get a group picture - here is one of them:
|Moss, Flynt, and me. Mom didn't even have treats. That's how good I was!|
Mom said she thought I'd be good, but didn't think I'd be as good as I was. She was really proud of me. Not to brag, but the word "perfect" was tossed around a bit. I would have LOVED to play with those boys, but understood I was working.
To make up for it, this morning on our walk, Maggie and I did a bit of this:
... and a bit of this:
|Maggie and me, thoroughly enjoying a bit of Crazed River Otter Games as we walked|
It was super fun.
I'll hopefully get to see Flynt and Moss again soon! Maggie will get to meet them eventually; she said she knows all kinds of great things she could teach Flynt. Mom said that's what she and Beth are afraid of. Ha roo woo roo!
