Today is the last day of April

One third of the year over as time gathers momentum!! So true that as you get older, time goes by faster. Hubby and I were saying the other day when did we get to look so old?

Doggy class today instead of Sunday and I shall find out if it’s a permanent change or just for the Bank Holiday weekend. It works out very well for us as I’m taking our friend to the local doctor’s practice where they are giving the latest Covid boosters. We haven’t been invited yet for ours, but we are only in our 60s and they are still only doing those in their 80s.

We bought Maya a new style collar yesterday, a half choker similar to the one Kela wears.
The full choker we bought is too long and Hubby has been using her usual collar with mixed results, so we thought along these lines. When we came back from our shopping trip yesterday, Hubby dropped my off by the park and I walked her home on her usual collar. I didn’t meet up with anyone or anything until half way round the estate when a guy we know was walking his little dog on an extending lead some distance away. Maya saw him, and I made her sit until they were out of sight, then counted to sixty before we continued on our way. She was pretty good and on a scale of 0 to 10, it was a definite 8 as she sat at the kerb until I told her to cross and trotted along beside me, though she did lose a little bit of concentration a couple of times, but at least I had no lunging.
I tried out the new collar in the afternoon and it was brilliant. She was brilliant. The walk was brilliant, in fact the most perfect I have had with her, so I hope it was not a one off!

If only we could get her to go through the night, but maybe our class leader has some ideas.

Have a good day, keep safe and take care.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
