Still counts! Ezra only lifts his leg on two trees in my friend's back yard… this particular friend is THREE hours away. Ezra only pees on two trees three hours away. Male fail.

Journey got a rabbit this morning - it ran out from under the deck while she was out, and she nailed it within seconds. Got it away from her before she could eat any of it, though.

Also, Laur, I'm laughing at the "field full of breezes"

Darn autocorrect!

It's pretty cool. Saw some cirneco and LHW too. I didn't realize how long courses are.

Started Talon's new training program. We are going to walk 3xweek just around the neighborhood working on focus and his reactivity issues. There are a few spots I know there are dogs that are at least contained, so we will be working on focus mainly around those areas. Than 1X week we will go to someplace more challenging for him (ie petstore, lowes, a "new" park, etc).

Today we started it, he did really good for the first time! We went towards a house with four stone statues of dogs pushed up against a chain link fence. Talon is convinced they are real, if just very quiet, dogs. He was super focused on them at first, but after a few times of rewarding for his focus on me we walked right by them without even a glance at them.

Unfortunately it's right next to a semi-busy road so we got to work a lot of sitting and looking at me while cars went by, which he did really good at! We didn't go to the school like planned as two dogs were playing frisbee in one of the fields off leash and Talon was pretty done anyways, so we headed home.

We had to go past a yard that has a very loud, fence running doxie and chihuahua, but they didn't seem to be out. Well, we found out they were in fact out as soon as we got right next to the yard they started barking. Talon didn't freak out, but was very "OMG OMG *whine!! WHINE!!****" as I kept pulling him backwards. We had to halfway down the block before I was able to get his focus back.

The part I'm really proud of is after getting his focus back I was able to keep his focus as we walked past the yard with the other dogs barking! He only lost focus on me one time, but after just two steps back he regained it. I'm so proud of him! This really gives me hope to continue his training! I just wish I hadn't been so anxious about starting this sooner, he could be so good by now lol

David took Art as well and Art is just amazing. He didn't react to a single person or the dogs.

Mia got bragged on three times today by three different people. I'm a proud mama.

1. A lady in my tricks class who has a pit bull. I was running through Mia's tricks and she said she'd watched Westminster and they'd talked about how smart papillons are. She was amazed by Mia's tricks.

2. My trainer. I forget how the conversation goes but we were hanging out at the lure coursing and I had kind of ragged on Mia (jokingly!). She told me Mia was a fantastic dog and was telling everyone else that they should see how many tricks Mia knows.

3. At the park we were walking on a trail and Summer stepped on Mia's leash right as a big group of people came walking by. Mia's leash was yanked out of my hands. I told her to wait and she stopped and let the people walk past without any glance. I grabbed her leash and a lady in the group said 'Wow, that is one really well behaved dog!'



She's a good one.

Not only were there multiple Ibizans at the show today (a first!), there was one that was SO COOL. I absolutely loved him. He was a big wire hair who was just having the time of his life. Playing with his handler, super up and cute. I loved him.

Also, Jeromy is sold on Cardigans now. Yessss.

I for some reason decided to let Juno sleep in bed with me last night, and now all day today she has had it in her head that she should be allowed on all the furniture, and that she's not going to lie down unless she is in someones lap.

And she's so hard to say no to.
