The Day the Circus Came to Town!
Took the Dog to the Circus tonight.
Bet you didn't see that one coming. If I'd been thinking ahead, I would have brought all four of the Bengals, and with me and my new RED hair, we could have BEEN the circus.
It went like this, tonight's Canine Good Citizen/Outdoor Adventure class met at the Rec Park. We go somewhere new every week, hence the "Adventure" bit. And, gosh darn, if the Circus wasn't in town!
As you might expect, this provided an entire level of "Working With Distractions."
Hey, does your dog chase cats? Walk him past the EIGHT tigers in open sided cages! Does your dog think he is the biggest thing going? The elephants can help! Having a problem with a Dog meeting new people...?????
We have clowns.
Dogs HATE clowns. Sometimes Dogs are not so dumb. Clowns are scary.
Cabal did really well. The other Dog Owners despair when they see his most excellent leash walking and sit/stay skills. I point out that this is his fifth time in Dog School. It's like he is in third grade, but repeated first and second twice.
It's fun, tho. And tonight we got to go to the Circus.
Today was much work, tho I did get the evil cable/phone/Internet company to lower my bill by $50. It's not easy You have to keep calling, over and over, and end up saying things like "Well, gee wiz, if I leave you for Company X for phone and Internet my bill drops $50, are we saying farewell, or are you re-doing my package?"
(which sounds vaguely naughty, somehow)
Venus and Mim did NOT like me staying away last night. Took out two lamps and a nice box filled with dried flowery bits. I actually kind of like my house with dried flowery bits scattered from end to end, so this is good, and lamps are over-rated. I only mention this because they are sitting on the couch with me, one on either side, WATCHING as I type, and if I do a whole blog about taking the dog to the Circus and don't mention them, I am afraid of what they might do next.
Love and critters,
