A little puppy brag

At last week's "practice session" (which Luna is doing in lieu of classes), Luna had to be behind a barrier because she was soooo overstimulated seeing her friends. It was all TOO much!

Last night, I remembered to bring some chicken as a super duper good treat, and she was a a star. It's the first time she's worked on an actual attention heel-- she walks well enough on a loose leash that this skill has been low on the list. So last night we started working on it and did pass-bys with her doggie friends. She loves the cattle dog in the class and after having not seen her in a few weeks, she was trrremmmbling with excitement at first.

But she got it together and did brilliantly. :)

Yay good job Luna!

Thanks! I'm really proud of her. It's easy to forget how smart she is when she's so damn rotten so much of the time. ;-)

And yeah-- she's getting taller and her muscles are starting to gain some definition. Her front end is catching up to the back end-- I was a little afraid she'd be all sloped forward forever!! lol
