What a Blessing!

It’s Thursday; which means it’s dog obedience class again. Today I decided to drag one of the puppies along too. I chose Blessing. Next week, it will be one of the other girls.

It was a long day, but she did so well! They both ended up falling asleep in their crates on the way to town.

I needed to do some grocery shopping, but it was too warm to leave the dogs in the car for that length of time. So we parked in the shade at our local gas station/mini mart while I used the free hi-speed internet. 😉

Then it was off to the feed store. But first, we needed a potty break.

I’m so proud of this pup! This was the best place I could find to potty her. Right next to the busy highway route, cars and trucks whizzing by and she was like, not a problem, just here to empty my bladder.

Then we headed inside to pick up food for the old horse.

Of course, we had to go see the baby chicks while we were there. 🙂

“Mom, can I have one of these to eat, um, I mean play with?” 😉

Yes, Cavaliers are “Spaniels” and they do tend to like to go after birds.

We headed to the next feed store in town to see if they had the feed I needed since these guys were out.

And of course, we had to check out their toy selection. Then it was time for obedience class at the fairgrounds.

I set up an exercise pen for her at the edge of the field that we work in. She was very content most of the whole two hours we were there. I was very pleased with her reaction to all the dogs and people she met. She loved everybody!

And my “student” did well again for class.

Class ended about dusk, so it was cool enough for me to let the dogs sleep in the truck while I ran into the grocery store(s). We got home late, but I was so happy with how well Blessing took in all the new sights, sounds, smells, people and animals she met. She was friendly, outgoing, curious and not nervous at all during her adventure.
