Thanks everyone, Lucas (toddler) is doing better. He still has a cough, but the fever has passed, and the laboring to breath is gone.
Lynn, that is really scarry, I bet you and Casper were both really on edge after that. I would definitely talk to the trainer, hopefully he will have a good solution.
They really need either 2 classes, or to have the animals separated (big/little).
Princess is doing much better in the car, we have figured out to take her for a walk first, and to make sure she's in her bag. We've tried the plastic crate since then, and she still slobbers everywhere. If she's out of the bag, she slobbers everywhere. So we have learned, we don't go anywhere without her bag.
She started conformation classes, and the trainer (also our new vet) told us that she didn't really need the basic puppy obedience class, because she's almost potty trained, and I have her doing some of the basic commands already.
We've been to two of the conformation classes, and the first one was hard.. it was really a battle of wills. I won, but the little turkey wouldn't even look at me for the rest of the night. She got in bed with me, and then went to lay with hubby instead. lol
The second class went really good.. she's doing pretty good on her lead and she stacks ok.
My teenager did last week's class with her, and I saw the first part when I dropped him off, and caught the tail end of it. I think he may be our handler.. he just doesn't know it yet
I'll try and catch the chat, but it probably wont be until Monday... our weekends are crazy, as all 5 kids play drive Mommy nuts.
