Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

More obedience.


Katie and I went to another drop in competitive obedience class, this one right across the freeway from the airport, last night.  Since I was away almost 6 weeks and Katie didn’t get to go to school during all that time I’m trying to make up to her and go as often as we can.  She had fun, mostly, and was pretty close to perfect, in her own Katie kind of way.   Except on the long down when, as I was walking away a plane went by low and loud overhead at the same time the thunder started.  When I turned around, on the other side of the ring, Katie was right behind me…looking sheepish, but scared.  Poor baby, I couldn’t yell at her.

But guess what?  She did TWO stand-for-exam exercises for two different instructors and didn’t move her feet at all!!

You go Katie-girl!

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Yea Katie!! Diana


  2. Wow! That’s awesome that Katie allowed to peole to “examine” her. Go Katie.

    Talk about a class with distractions. I can’t think of a more distracting place with airplanes & thunder. Misty would have been shaking like a leaf.


  3. I agree with Sara, those are some incredible distractions. And to recover and do two stand for exams, I think that’s great!


  4. Well…the stand for exams were BEFORE the downs and sits and before the thunder…but still, she did great! LOL!


  5. WooHoo, Katie! So glad to hear she did well at her class and did 2 stand for exams! That’s so awesome!

  6. Progress, one step at a time! Or rather one stand-still at a time! Good for both of you.


  7. Neither of us do well with loud noises either.
