Yesterday marked the end of the seminar.
I am feeling sad already! Because I know fairly well that it just means my folks are going back to their busy schedules and wont have time to bring me for anymore Agility practice.
Does anyone have any solution for this? 😦
On hindsight, I picked up many new handling skills but I felt mama & I could benefit more if we had prior experience to this sport and are not so novice. It would certainly help if Mama didnt confuse her Front- and Rear-crosses. geeshhh..
Anyway it’s over and tonight we are going over to Dexter’s place for buffet dinner with Luke.
And oh! Yesterday for the first time we played this game called Strategic Pairs. It’s about finding a partner to run the course and whoever makes a fault will need to swap partners to finish it. If you faulted and your partner faulted at the same obstacle, you just have to keep swapping and get stuck at that obstacle.
I paired up with long-time pal Miss Nova for the game, and as a consolation to everything, we actually managed to get 3rd and 1st respectively for both runs. *YAY*
Ok it might not be a big deal, but com’on how about a little encouragement!
Everyone received a postcard. Here’s mine:
Can you see mama in the neon wind-breaker??
The tiny humans with their great dogs.
Obviously I’m so infamous for knocking bars that’s why Luke wrote what he wrote, and I’m all the more convinced that I should not give up this wonderful sport.
But as you all know, my social life and recreation are solely at my parents’ mercy.
Need to think of a solution!
I was reprimanded by Mummy for biting myself silly.
She pointed the bald patches to me and said “Why did you bite yourself huh? Can you stop doing that!”
(Veron: Immediately after scolding him, he looked mighty sad and slipped away to….. our utility toilet. And stayed there for a good 15min until I had to go in to carry him out. I think he was self-reflecting and really guilty because he wouldnt even look at me when I teased him with the camera!)
Hi ya all, I havent really got time to blog, because the mama’s been so busy with her school term tests and all. And not to mention, my papa is so caught up in his work and studies to bother about me. So these days are spent lying around the house until papa comes home at un-Godly hours to bring me down for a run if I’m lucky.
But all will change for the better, hopefully, when my folks finally settle down and get their own place. Ahh… so discussion has been rife lately between my folks and Mama’s friends, namely Aunty Shaz and Meiyee.
The aunties are talking about property and other boring stuff. Think Shaz wants to move into Calrose condo at Yio Chu Kang, but I’ll be happy if I just get my own home and get to stay with Lizzy and Mama and see them everyday! Nevermind where we stay.
But I have a request – it must be near to training areas like the East.
That’s Papa’s suggestion too! He told mama that we should get a condo unit in the East as everything cool is there – famous food, the beach, airport, and most importantly, training!
Hmm but according to mum, that wont happen for the next 2,3 years lah because getting married and settling down takes time and $$ to prepare.
And oh, I’ve been kept busy these few nights because I am attending an Agility Seminar organised by PUPS. They flew in this South Australian trainer Luke Schneider.
I think he is so cool! (sorry papa).
I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I think mama too, although I could see she was quite tired after every session.
You can read more about the Seminar here: http://www.geocities.com/the_pups/LukeSAgilitySeminar.html.
That’s all for now… Hope to have more updates when I go for potluck dinner and next Sunday’s Class95 dog walk.
Erm I didnt join the fun today, because Mama was thinking I’m smelling like JPG Le Male so she’s lazy to groom me again today (I just bathed yesterday after attending Meteor’s and Jasmine’s birthday party)
But honestly I’m glad she didnt because turns out, I had 3 torn paw pads, which is quite a torture, out of 4 paws.
Human count: 14.
Dawg count: forgot to count
Anyhow, I’m sure everyone had fun! My folks organised this but they were actually the LAST to arrive! Turns out that they were on time, but when they drove in, they didnt see any familiar cars so they detoured and went for a spin and even drove to the petrol kiosk beside Aunty Eleanor’s home to take a pee break WAHAHAHA silly humans! *shakes tail in disapproval*
What do you think these logs are for?
For crawling under! “Excuse me, do you need help?” “No I can manage if you dont block my view”

At the end of it all, guess who we saw?
Uncle Ronald’s meditation got interrupted. heh
Join us for the next gathering! I promise it’ll be fun.
You’ll have lots of friends, tons of exercise, and a mobile canteen where you can have drinks and good food. And look, even a portable sofa! 8)
