A Day of Wonder and Marvel
It was truly a day of wonder and marvel, here in the Wild Kingdom.
First of all, Cabel the Dog PASSED his Canine Good Citizenship Test!!! This came as a complete surprise to, well, everyone who knows him. He is a great dog, but does sometimes lack Good Citizenship skills. We hedged a bit, his trainer and I. One is not meant to use the head harness Gentle Leader thing, for reasons my trainer does not get. They are meant to do it all on coller and leash. Cabal is simply not controllable tho that way, so we used the Gentle Leader. He is taking the class again, with hopes that we can work up to just a coller.
Besides, it is kind of fun. People, dogs, walking around. (Top that for excitement LA folks!)
And JL2 let me pet her while she ate! And seemed to enjoy it. Or she was really hungry. Hard to tell.
Venus only drew blood once, and I kind of asked for it, playing Fingers Coming Out From Under The Blanket. Must re-Softpaw.
The peas got planted, tho, sadly not by Transcribing Girl.
And I read my first Jane Austen Chapter. (Getting away from the transcribing for ten minutes.) Wonderfully delightful! Why I have been scared off from her for so long I do not know...It's beautiful. I'm starting with Sense and Sensibility. Reading her bios I discovered that it was published on 1811, NOT the early 1900's, which was what I had thought. She was born a full 100 years earlier than I had believed.
This, for some reason, makes a huge difference..
Still a full moon.
And a day of wonder and marvel.
Love and Moons,
