Our class is canceled tonight. Our trainer has been sick off and on for 2 months. I worry about her. Some kind of respiratory virus. We work on the advanced signs and Augie knows them pretty well. But to take him off leash in a public place - ooooh boy, that one scares me - especially after his RLH moment during one of the classes!! For the time being, we will live vicariously through you and Kodi for that!
Please continue to share - love hearing of your experiences!
Well, it has been a long time coming, so I'm sure Augie will get there too!
We were planning to go to a CDSP Obedience training session last night, but our area was getting pummeled by tornados. (last count I heard on the news was 11!) We decided to stay home.(with my Mini Cooper, I figured a tornado could easily carry us away, car and all!
) There was video footage of the biggest one sweeping across the Connecticut River, and just sucking the water up out of the river and into the funnel. Really scary! Fortunately, while some of them touched down pretty close to us, we didn't even get winds any stronger than you'd get with a strong thunder storm. Our pool accumulated another 2" of water though!
The heavy damage, injuries and deaths were all further west than we are. A lot of people lost their homes, or at least their roofs. And since this isn't a major tornado area, there are no tornado shelters. One family rode out the storm in their bathtub... but it saved their lives. The house came down around them, but they were all fine when rescue workers got to them.
Kodi wasn't thrilled when big hail hit the windows, but otherwise, he did fine. One of my friends had to drug her dogs and put them in crates in the basement because they got so upset over the noise. Kodi just wanted to sit with us and cuddle. (of course, maybe that's because I make him ride through the car wash (feeding him goodies all the way) on a regular basis. Maybe he just thought it was a gigantic "house wash".
