Obedience School 101:
We are very proud of our little dog, Cookie.
She graduated from obedience school this morning.
Sit. Stay. Heel. Sit. Stay. Heel.
She didn't do all that well because she was so sick for about 3 out of the 6 weeks, and just really couldn't get with the program.
I think her graduation was more a social promotion than one on merit but nonetheless, she graduated.
The graduation ceremony was somewhat disappointing, although it was much like most graduation ceremonies.
The instructor gave a too long, boring talk for nearly an hour and then a demonstration of her dog's remarkable abilities (he is pretty amazing). Then we got to walk around the arena once and we were done.
It was slightly disappointing though, because they forgot the certificates and said if we wanted one, they would mail it to us.
I don't think obedience is Cookie's forte.
She is better at sleep, eat, be cute.
But I would be willing to bet that if I spent 6 months with her and worked at it seriously, with just her and me, we could do all the stuff we were supposed to learn in the last 6 weeks.
Higher education just isn't all that it's cracked up to be.
I wonder if she should work on her masters degree.....
