Recalls...not always a non contact sport!




The highlight of my recall work this weekend was today when I took the border collies to the park to do some restrained recalls...Cricket is doing so well, and I am able to get pretty much the whole way across the park and do her recalls-it is awesome to see her and how fast she runs to me-she is AWESOME.


It all went horribly wrong when Cricket caught up to me and I did a 360 degree turn with the toy, she had so much momentum that when she grabbed for the toy.....she caught my shirt, I heard a RIP!!!!! and sure enough....you guessed it....she had ripped my whole right boob area out of my shirt-Who knew it would rip like that??? OOOH CRICKET! It was great having to march with my dog past the playground full of children, the sheriff's dept and the parking lot before I got to my car. Unfortunately I had also cleaned out my car the other day and with the warm weather I had taken out my jacket. Ughghg, what a time for the car to be totally out of gas-the next stop in our adventure was supposed to be Target and the gas station. Well, we skipped Target and I really hope the car will make it back out to the gas station because I just did not want to go pump gas with my newly restyled shirt, thanks Cricket! I think the dog has a little drive!
(Cricket says it was NOT her fault!)


I will spare you all pictures or film of the event, LOL, no need to thank me for that!

Funny girl, Cricket!!
I thought maybe she may have hurt herself when I read she did a 360 degree turn. Luckily it wasn't too disastrous!!! LOL

LOL! What an enthsiastic recall! What more could you ask for?

I think you should make Cricket do the dishes for a week to pay for your new shirt.

Great story Kathy.

Dogs!!! I still have ripped clothes from when Miley was young. Im glad she is little. She couldnt reach that high. Mostly I just have holes. I guess your shirt is now used for cleaning stuff. LOL
