Ok, now to our post.
The Lady got this bright idea that it would be nice to be in an activity for the end of winter. Looking at her schedule and the school schedule, she decided to put us (Lee and Phod) in flyball. Well, really she thought Phod would love this and Lee could go along so she wouldn't destroy the house when home alone.
As you regular readers will know, we missed the first class because someone had kennel cough. The next obstacle was getting Phody into the car. He is taking a pill called Cerenia to help with his motion sickness. He hasn't thrown up the 2 times he has tried it but either it or the stress of the car is giving him diarrhea (once in the car, the other time not in the car). However, he is happier to go in the car and doesn't have to be forced.
Our Lady didn't blog about our first class because she was too embarrassed with our behaviour. We were too excited to really focus. We really wanted to play with the other dogs, but the teacher won't let us. She says in competitions you can't play, so in her class you can't play. Our Lady wonders if this is a little strict for an introductory class where most won't go on to compete, but she tries to keep us away from potential friends.
Lady says we were much better the second class, but both need to work on waiting. She is very impressed with how well we both due when it is our turn to go. We can both be very focused then. Here is Phod showing off his mad skills working on turning.
Our biggest challenges which we will be working on over the weekend are when the ball is introduced. Zaphod loves the ball and doesn't want to drop it and Hailey will chase the ball, but doesn't care to pick it up. Practice will hopefully help!
Our Lady's favourite part about our class - how tired we are after.
Have a good one
