    I'm so proud of Judge. He is more kind hearted and sweet than what I ever could imagine. I have my little brother's dog for a little bit. This is the first time he has ever left Kilo in 3 years for more than a night. So, Kilo was sad Saturday when my brother left him. He had laid down on a dog bed and sighed heavy. Judge went over to him and curled up around him laying his head on Kilo. Almost telling him, it's fine, your boy will be back in a couple days and my girl will take care of you. It really made me cry. This dog is more tender hearted than you could imagine.

    Awwww! That made me a little teary eyed! What a sweet boy.

    Lily for some reason followed me into the bathroom this weekend, usually she just waits by the door. *shrug*

    Scout met me at the door when I went home to eat dinner at 4. I got good snuggles! Lily is trying really hard to make friends with my roommates' cats'. Duffy is still having none of it despite Lily's attempts at polite body language and butt sniffing protocol.

    And they have both stayed out of the cat food this week! (gosh I hope I didn't just jinx that)

    I've been working on "drop it" with Fable, and today I saw her running around with something in her mouth. I asked her to come and drop it in my hand. She finally did it without hesitation first! Yay!
    Oh, and it was a cat turd from the litterbox and I kind of squealed when I realized what it was. That might have set us back a bit, but hey, she did a good job today, lol.

    Those are pretty cute stories!

    Well, Chulita, who has had issues with taking walks since she went blind in one eye has gone on walks lately as long as it's not around here. When I've taken her to novel places, even places she has been, but spaced apart, she thinks that's grand. So, I'm proud of her for being so "brave" as long as it's someplace new and probably because nothing scary has happened at these places.

    Jose`...hmmm...I guess I'm just proud of him for being him. He really hasn't done anything fantastic. But he doesn't have to, I guess. He's just such a nice little fella.

    Oh, here's something. While walking him on the side walk, some little kid about 1-1/2 or 2 yrs old came up behind him and put both hands on his back side, startling him. The father didn't do anything. Jose` jumped a little out of surprise, but didn't really react in any other way. Then the kid put his face right in his face. Again, Jose` just took it. That was before I had a chance to move them apart. Then I explained to the kid (who's too young to understand, but it was for the father's benefit) that not all dogs will tolerate sneaking up behind them or letting someone shove their face up that close....that a lot of dogs would bite, soooooooo.... Anyhow, I was proud that Jose`, who's not that use to little kids was so tolerant and easy going about it...just a great little dog.

    Well Squash has perfected his technique of grabbing a mouthful of horse poop while running "on by" it, without stopping. Oddly, I am actually sort of proud of that.

    I just love my mush puppies. They have so much heart and are really amazing and fantastic, and make such a good team.

    Gotta say, for Jose not to react any more than that -- isn't so little, especially not for such a small dog. That was quick thinking and good impulse control on his part.

    Tango warmed up my my MiL when she was here this past weekend. Last time she was here he wanted nothing to do with her. She was really excited to have a snuggly dog in her lap.

    Frodo went to an autocross on Sunday and was awesome! There were quite a lot of people there and he didn't bark at even one person! We had three people ask to pet him, and we didn't even need to play our "people touch you, you get food" game, just had each person give him a cookie, and then he let them pet him :)

    He also met Reba the Golden Retriever without any kind of reactivity.

    And here's a picture of him at the autocross, being a lap warmer:

    Thanks Renee. Yeah, the only reaction was that of being startled from not knowing the kid was coming up behind him, a little tucking in of his butt and a little jump forward, then turned to look and was like, "that's fine, but next time let me know you're coming." lol

    Frodo is a good boy....just chillin' ...cute pic!

    :rofl1:

    Just trying to imagine that, lol.

    Really proud of Strider and my parents old man cat, Kiki, today.

    Usually Kiki is terrified of the dogs. He'll glimpse one through a window and streak off like he's being chased by fiery death hounds. Strider loves this "game" and feeds into it whenever he gets a chance. Like lunging at him through the front window. Or running on top of him if they happen to get in the yard together.

    Magically, this morning, Kiki was on the porch and I warned him Strider was coming out. He. Just. Stood. There. He caught Strider's eye and I told him to leave it before he had a chance to prank-lunge, and he did. Not only that, he totally left it. Usually if I say it, he won't lunge but he'll give Kiki The Eye or do something passive aggressive that scares Kiki because he likes getting a reaction.

    Not today though!

    It's little but I know how I've talked about how uncontrollable yoshi can be around food and we have finally succeeded with:

    Note: she doesn't get the whole thing. Only about a third.

    Abe jumped 16" last night at agility. From a dog who wouldn't get near any equipment a few weeks back to almost running a full course at 16" made me cry I was so happy.

    I put a jump out with the weaves today and did jump-weave and weave-jump exercises with P.
    I have no words for how amazed this little dog makes me. I want to give him ALL THE COOKIES to show him how proud I am. It's still not enough.

    I must say I'm quite impressed with the size of the hoard of socks Fable managed to stash in the litterbox in one day. 21 socks. Some are even matching pairs.
    At least I'm not wondering where the hell all my socks are anymore.

    FYI, the cats- not so impressed with Fable's hoarding skills.

    I was wondering the same thing hahaha.

    Bamm is doing so well with Joey. They actually play together now and Bamm is being pretty patient with Joey's bouncy puppyish antics. I thought it would take longer for Bamm to get used to having a male dog around, but its going really well.

    Cricket got out today. The landlord accidentally left the door open and she ran outside with his dog. She came running when Josh called which I think is big since I wasn't there and she usually listens to me better.
