I've been relaxing at home after a great weekend with Mom doing agility up around Baltimore. She's learning to be a better handler, but I'm helping her along by being a good boy for her. She was SO PROUD of me! We got a ribbon (and second place) two days in a row over all those big ol' obstacles like the A-frame and the dog walk and teeter, but on the Jumpers courses I had to show her who was boss and run faster than her!
She says I got a title on Saturday, an AX (Agility Excellent), so she was happy (MOM: VERY happy!). I was happy running! She bought some video of our runs so maybe by Christmas she can show everyone our running style...
Here I am with my pal Snoopy and my ribbons hung up by the fireplace... we need stockings to hang this time of year, Mom!
Mom was looking around the house for something so she was poking around some stuff and found my birthday present from her. She lost it last month --- a new blue jacket! Wow -- I'm so cool in my new duds ---
She was trying to figure out what to do with that Christmas tree on the table in the den and thought she found the answer....agility ribbons!
Well, maybe not.. she needs to go through all our ornaments and find some smaller ones to put on it. She's got a lot to look through!!
Today we got another little Christmas tree in a box by the front door (grrr -- I barked when I heard the man come and deliver it -- that's my job when my people are away). It's too little for the table so it's going in the kitchen and it already has lights on it. Mom says she's got no idea who sent it. It was from the big florist people (FTD), addressed to her, but the note on it said "To Daddy" and something about hoping he recovers soon, Love Courtney and Brice, somebody like that. Hmmmm! Maybe "Daddy" is wondering who Mom is on the note he got in his box!!
I hope he wasn't supposed to get a Christmas tree!!! It's cute though -- Josie and I are posing on the floor with it 'cause we can't find the extension cords right now.
Mom calls it our "I-don't-know-tree" 'cause we don't know who sent it. As in the song 'O Christmas Tree' (Oh I-don't-know-tree, Oh I-don't-know-tree, I don't know if you belong to me!). Ha ha, Mom!
