For a little comic relief I present…Katie!
She and I have a Rally trial coming up this Saturday. Last night I was telling my husband that I spent my lunch in the car reading the Advanced Rally signs and practicing commands out loud. I demonstrated for him; “siT! Down! Back! Circle! Katie – HEEL!” He started laughing and pointed behind me.
There was Katie dutifully sitting and downing, all the time cocking her head to one side as if to say “GEEZE Mama, not so fast! You know you were using your SCHOOL voice!”
And now she tells me if I laugh at her she just might not be so responsive come Saturday. So I guess I better be more respectful. Because you never know what a Sheltie is going to do.
You just never know.
