Lisa, I'm sick :cry:
I woke up with a stuffed nose, headache and felt nauseous.
I don't know if I'll be going early or not. Depends on how I'm feeling.

Hi Lisa, hope you see this before you leave.

I won't be leaving here until about 4:30. So I won't be there very early.
I am still feeling like crap :cry:

I got there an hour early with a few girls and we hung around getting the dogs used to each other. Then the trainer showed up and we went inside. Did a few minutes of training "watch" and got started.

He went around and did the first two steps (shaking hands and sit for petting)
Then he did the grooming and walk on loose lead
We then did walking in a crowd (I put Angel in a diff room and me and the trainer were the crowd)then the sit stay, down stay, come, and calm your dog down
Then we did walking by a dog, and we took each others dogs and did stranger for a few minutes.
Then the last test was walking through the door before your dog. (I think thats all 12 steps).

The trainer was pretty easy on us and let us do the step another time if it wasnt perfect.

Here's a picture of us all after (not too great sorry)

hehehehehe You guys beat me to the punch telling the GREAT NEWS!!! WAHOO! All that worrying for nothing!!!!
I closed my eyes when the papers were being passed out. He was telling everyone one at a time, "You passed' then on to the next person, etc. I was sure he would tell me 'Great try Connie', but when I heard 'You passed' I couldn't believe it!!!!
What a GREAT feeling!!!!
And Lisa, I owe you a LOT!
I came in with a very positive attitude, a few of us practiced in the chill outside (and it was FREEZING!), but somewhere down the line, leave it to me to have a panic attack. How the trainer got Lisa's dog and how Lisa was right in front of me telling me how to breath and focus on her. She was EXCELLENT! She calmed me down like no medication could. She was unbelievable. The way she took charge of the situation and the calmness she brought into me, breathing a long with me. She was a real HERO today and I want you all to know it!!!!

That was Lindy with Brutus and one other woman wasn't there do to some kind of heart condition.
JP, I'm glad you came regardless of how you felt. Getting the pass and knowing we will all receive our certificates MUST have made you feel a whole lot better!
Now get rest up you two as we have the Bowl-A-Thon this next Saturday towards the legal funds. I hope to see you there!!! You too Lisa!
Lindy is captain of the team and I am coach and head cheer leader. It's going to be a riot and the A Chennel news will be there.
You both are coming right?
