Timber’s treasure is still in the wind, well Arkansas actually. It will be there for two more days it looks like and then off to sunny Southern California.
Oh the wait!
In other news, Timber, Karen and I had our second private lesson with Lucky Leash today. This woman is amazing. We love her. Timber is doing so well and he is so darn smart.
Karen and I on the other hand have entered a very steep learning curve. Lola from Lucky Leash has her work cut out for her.
No news on Timber’s treasure as it travels from Florida. I’m guessing, just by looking at the map, that it must be in Mississippi or getting close.
The only weather alert there is pollen, so hopefully the thunderstorm and tornado alerts won’t be a problem.
64 hours A treasure map, whatever could it mean?
Of course you have to add some sleep time to that. So let’s say 8 hour days, stops in Naples, FL; Highland Beach, FL; Miami, FL; Starkville, MS; Bella Vista, AR; Bakersfield, CA; Atascadero, CA; Novato, CA and last, but not least, Salem, OR.
Eight days, 4,318 miles, 64 hours on the road.
Once upon a time, there was a litter of puppies.
Timber says, let the countdown begin, but he’s still not gonna tell you his secret.
Timber just wanted to assure you that his secret is REALLY big.
And yes, his secret is safe with him.
Something big is about to happen at Greyhound Gardens.
Timber knows all about it and I don’t think he is going to tell anyone.
In another day or so, the countdown will begin. It’s big, it’s exciting, it’s…
Nope, we’re not gonna tell. Bwah ha ha.
Well, Timber is signed up for private obedience lessons. He still has a few issues that we would like to stop.
We could teach him the basics, sit, down, leave it, shake… but beyond that, we really need help.
Sunday we start our first of lessons for him with a professional trainer. I’m pretty darned excited.
I have the best assistant in the whole world.
Last night the lighting was perfect, the flowers were in bloom and I was ready for photos. Karen was ever so happy to take Timber out for me. And then, I thought he should run through the field of flowers.
Her pants didn’t look that bad covered in bright yellow pollen.
Ever so thankful none of us have allergies.
We got a bit of an attitude from the red head a few weeks ago. It did not make me a happy camper.
And when momma ain’t happy, nobody’s happy. Timber got put on NILIF.
This dog blew me right out of the water. It took him a day to sit. Another day to shake, then shake with the other paw. Down was a walk in the park. I put his beloved Stella and Chewy treat on his paw and told him to leave it. He is amazing me. He leaves it. He stands. Now I’m trying to get him to gently jump up and give me a hug, we’re not doing so well with that one. All of the other commands he does. He just makes me laugh with joy.
Of course, it upset his tender tummy for a few days when the rules changed and if he doesn’t want to eat, he’s not so motivated.
Now that he’s feeling better, for just a few treats we can whip right the commands.
Ah yes, that’s our boyzoi.
