The weather has turned out to be beautiful for the Bank Holiday weekend not that we're planning on going anywhere as the roads are too busy and too many visitors here. We sat in the garden yesterday afternoon after returning from the puppy socialisation class just enjoying the sunshine and I had the last bottle of cider bought over a month ago and that must have been the last time we had really decent weather when Tilly enjoyed being in the paddling pool. The peace was only shattered by a young seagull on the neighbour's roof with it's constant loud squawking calling for it's mother or food. I do resist the temptation to feed seagulls but I did feel sorry for this one all the same.
We're half way through the puppy training course now but only four pups were in our group yesterday. I know all the puppies names but not those of the owners although I have chatted to them while waiting our turn to go inside the hall. It was a good session and with so few there I got more of a one-to-one with the trainer. Tilly is very good at the wait command even when I walk away from her although she's still kept on her lead. The trainers were doing checks on the pups, all scanned for their microchips, dog tags checked, teeth and coats checked and Tilly is in good condition as she has been fully groomed and her coat is shiny and she's not over or under weight. I'd taken her grooming brush and favourite toy as requested last time but none of the pups were interested in playing with their favourite toys, too interested in what else was going on. The idea was to teach them to leave when told to and Tilly is not very good at doing that especially when she steals things she shouldn't and likes me to chase her around the house. I thought I'd show you Tilly's favourite toy only bought on Monday. It's a unicorn tugger except it now has a missing tail and only one arm but just look at the back of it, tugged ad destroyed in just four days! Tilly is a lean, mean wrecking machine :)
