Ojo graduated from dog class!

This means that she does Sit and Down and Stay and Come. Or at least she knows a little bit about doing these things. She now knows how to go to her bed and lie down, how to wait for her dinner, and that she's not supposed to barge through doors until the people tell us we can go through. Also she's learning not to jump up or bark or pull on the leash!

So she's done a lot of work!

I have to tell you though that I have far more tricks. And I must say that my Sit, Down and Stay are fabulous, and I am very polite on the leash. (We are both good at the thing called Recall, but that's because we had to learn it or else we wouldn't be allowed to run and play at Forest or Beach!)

So my young friend still has a long way to come to compete with me in my trained greatness, but we are still all very proud of her!

Brody who is not Old

We took a friend on our Walk today. His name is Brody!

He is Old, but do not tell him that. He doesn't like to hear it. His people asked us to go slowly for him, but he led our Pack the whole way. Because he doesn't want anyone to think that he is Old.

He is very gentle, and he was much fun to have with us on our Walk. I think we should take him Walking again soon...

New Ball

Ode to our New Ball

Oh New Ball
You are round and bouncy
You fly from the people's feet
Like a bird or a squirrel
Or a little round sheep

Ojo likes to chase you
And I like to chase Ojo
I am very happy you came to us
Our New Ball

By the way, it looks like I am chasing New Ball in that picture above. But I am not.

Ojo is chasing New Ball. I am getting in front of Ojo so that I can cut her off and herd her and generally be annoying. I am very good at this. (She annoys me by pushing into my people, so I annoy her by cutting her off when she's running. Very fair, no?)

And besides, Ojo just likes to run. Like me, only even more. She even runs with our littlest person on her two-wheeled-crazy-thing.

Summer evenings at the Park with our people are the best! Do you have special outings with your people in the summer?

Tall grasses in my favourite Park

Today Nature was making Hot Sun and Cold Wind.

We went to one of my favourite places - Uplands Park! The grass and flowers had gotten very tall since I was here last. Ojo has never been here before. She loved it! Can you see her?

While Ojo bounced around in the flowers, I made a cozy nest in the cool grasses. Much more sensible, don't you think?

Whatcha dooin' now, Ojo?

Wait, you're playing chase-littlest-person? I LOVE the chasing game!! Wait for me!!!

By the end, Ojo's tongue was doing this. Can we do the tall grasses again tomorrow?

Help with Hose

Friends, sometimes Ojo is a bit annoying. Like when I'm getting petted by one of my people and she pushes in there and steals my pets. Or when I have a stick, and she pushes in and steals my stick.

But here is something good. I now have help with the water from the thing called Hose!

And, although I am slightly ashamed to admit it, she's better at playing Hose than I am. She is a crazy Dog! (And very brave in the face of all that water!)

Happy Canada Day!

To all our Canadian Dog friends - happy Canada Day!

This thing under my bum is a flag, not a mat? Who knew? In either case, I am very proud to be a CanadaDog!
