Today dog train began for my newest addition Wu now 4 months old
From home to the reserve I said heel 100 hundred times to no avail and had to show her my assertive "I'm the boss, don't mess with me voice" It always shocks dog when they see you in training mode but I tell them the truth, learning to come and sit may save your life one day. (I had to delete a rant here about people who don't bother training their dogs or putting them on leads but I thought that's better suited to a ranting blog, not a PG family friendly blog:)
So we trained unsuccessfully, arm sore from pulling, neck sore from choking and once we got to the park, lead came off and I whipped my camera out.
With training over Wu became a fantastic photography assistant and never strayed too far.
She lay in the beautiful cool green grass with me as I stalked these birds whose names I don't know yet and together we had our bellies tickled by insects underneath us. No amount of tickling was going to make me lose my target.
So I amassed about 136 pictures in the reserve. Many were rubbish. Note to self - remember to check settings, macro is not good for range flight shots.
And with the clicking over Wu and I sat and pondered life and we both agreed life was good.
We had a cuddle and I packed up my camera and headed home where not a child is in sight because they are all on holiday somewhere.
Then to finish it all off, Wu grasped the idea of heel half way home and never looked back.
I just love me' dogs.
Apart from the hour I spent with just Mr nunde at the Pancake parlour, child free, this was the other best hour I had today. I just love best hours too.
