KARMA....

For a day that started out with a heat wave and temps over 112 degrees it ended up being a pretty lucky day. Whooo Hooooo!!!

Today was my lucky day. In our agility classes the instructor gives out tickets for people that help with setting up the agility course. The last session was a bit irritating because there was only me and one other person that would help with setting up the courses--there was a group of people that would just sit around and talk-which is fine but it was irritating when they got tickets for setting up and I did not. I usually did not get a ticket for helping because after class I had to go drop off Breeze and get Lizzie for her class. It was hot, and the middle of the summer so it was hard work ... because I left a few minutes early they got tickets and I rarely did.

ANYWAY, you know Karma has got to be a real thing because I won the drawing of the tickets and got a FREE AGILITY CLASS this session. So I might have missed out on a lot of tickets I feel like I should have got...but it does not matter because I WON a free session of an agility class, WHOOOO HOOOOO.

To wrap up my day I worked with Cricket doing some practice with her end behavior for her contact, at several different places in the park. It was the first day I had taken it on the road....and Cricket was amazing. The first time or two we tried it she was sort of iffy and then it just sort of clicked we just do what we have been doing at home. BOY it is so amazing to see the little wheels turning and see a baby dog figuring things out. It is just so amazing to me that the dogs are even willing to do all this for us, and they can figure it out. Today I am amazed with my little puppy... amazed she is so willing to try to figure me and so willing to work to figure out what I want out. She just alwasys seems so happy to be working with me,....who could not appreciate that? Today watching her I just felt AMAZED.

Congratulations on winning! What a great idea your instructor has to get some help!

I'm not surprised at all the Cricket is always so willing to please you. You put in the hard work at the beginning, and now you get to reap the rewards.

Congrats on winning that free session! That's totally awesome!

I think it is amazing too that dogs are so willing to try to figure out what their humans want and will try and try until they get it. What a special bond there is between dogs and their people!

Good job Cricket on your contacts!
