Drum Roll Please...

Introducing the new and improved Linus.
Today was the last of our Canine Good Citizen class. We passed, but have yet to take the actual Canine Good Citizen test which will take place in the fall. Linus's shining moment today was when handlers had to leave their dogs in a row and stand more than 8 feet away from them, in a row, making an 'alley'. The instructor then threw a ball down the alley. Linus didn't bat an eye, I almost cried. Then she did it again and gave me permission to cry because as Liz said "not many Goldens will stay when a ball is thrown" but my Baby Li Li did.
I am thinking that major excercise before class is a good thing, except for the fact that it makes Linus super lazy and sleepy.

Aww....loved today's journaling and that photo is wonderful! BTW, Sandy did much better today digging in her dirt pit for treats. She's becoming piggish about it and wanted to dig up LOTS of treats. I had to cut her off at 12 treats this afternoon. The next step will be a WW for dogs program.

That's great for Mr. L! But, that is an old picture...
