Hey Dawgs!

We've been playing with dogmom for the past week and wondering why she's at home talking to people and working on the 'puter. Not that we mind... it means more ear rubs and tummy rubs and snacks and treats for us. Aaaannnndddd... we still have been going to Dog Pad to run and play.

Tory is helping dogmom to train Opie on some better obedience skills. He seems to be getting it and actually listening more. Dogmom says she knew he was smart... so smart he didn't think he had to listen to anybody.

Anypaws, he actually (sometimes) will heal and will come when he's called and sit-stay. Dogmom and Tory can open the door and tell him to stay and he actually does, until they walk out the door... then sometimes he thinks he should follow them even if they didn't ask him to.

But, it's a lot better than he was a few weeks ago when he went galavanting around the neighborhood chasing that squirrel for four hours.

Wuf Ya!

Hey Gomer & Opie,
Glad to hear the training is going well with you Opie. We bet you like it with your Mom home with you. We sure like our Mama home with us. How has Opie been doing during the bad storms this Spring?? Mama made me Butchy an Anti-Anxiety Vest & it seems to be helping a lot. I now wear that & take rescue remedy when a storm is coming. Haven't had to take my prescription meds yet this year. I haven't even panted during a storm. Mama also sold one of her vests for a big poodle. She is also scared of storms & fireworks. Anxious to see how the vest works for her. Hope you guys have a great week.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
