Show ring training resumed

I don't know if you remember, but mom had a serious ankle problem and we had to stop our conformation training for a while . These days we have resumed our training!!!!!!! There is nothing better than working with mom, looooooooooove it! And she looooooooooooves working with me because I am such a nice girl.

I received a ton of praises today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know the ankle still hurts a bit, but since we looooooove working together, we started anyhow.

Getting asked a very annoying question

Oh well, before I tell you what the question is I need to tell you most people here think a pedigree is dog food...Erm..yeah.

Emma is a show puppy (May 9th first show) and I keep getting asked a stupid question - am I getting her spayed? Geez, no. It's ironical on one hand, so many mixes having pups (I totally disapprove of this, of course) and so many irresponsible people breeding or thinking about breeding their poorly bred dogs (some not even pure breeds). I am the first one to blame irresponsible breeding and not spaying/neutering a dog that should never produce a litter.

But now it's really getting on my nerves. First time I was asked I was "" and laughed. Now it doesn't seem so funny.

Anyhow I am not even thinking any further before I hear some good judges' opinions of her.

Oh well, it is an established fact that I beg. Well, it's more than that, I am top teacher at Begging University! I have many styles of begging, of course. Lately I can also sing as part of the begging. Mom tried to capture that singing, unfortunately I saw the camera and stopped. Oh well...

Hopefully soon you will get to see&hear me singing!

I was sleeping under mom's chair, she was sitting at her desk. And suddenly a friend (closer to the epicenter) wrote "earthquake" and then mom felt it,too. She told me Emma COME, took me to the safest place in the house and told me to stay.

I have never before executed commands so fast. I work fast, but this time I was sleeping! In a fraction of a second we were in the safest place, and mom kept petting me. I was fine though. It only lasted for a few seconds here, but it was a 5.3 on Richter Scale.

We called everyone, nothing happened, of course, but some (very close to the epicenter) were pretty shaken. Oh well...we can't control nature :)

Under the weather

Last evening and most night I was feeling sick, so I kept mom and dad up all night. And gave them a pain in the *** with the pills I had to swallow. Needless to say I won :D.

I am feeling ok now, so it's not big deal, but they really freak out each time.

I am not grounded anymore, on condition I obey commands, the moment I hesitate, I am leashed, but I have learned my lesson. I know that I am not allowed in a particular area where someone didn't pick up their dog's poop.

So today I got to play with lots of kids, some new ones who are afraid of dogs, but they absolutely loved to play with me. I am not surprised at their reaction (fear) because there are so many aggressive strays here. Moreover, a lot of dogs are poorly socialized even if they have a family.

An hour later or so Blanca came too. We put up a show and kids were laughing heavily. We both love them, Blanca is such a wonderful girl, sweet and playful.

I fooled mom today haha because she told me we were only going out for like 10 or 15 min, and we ended up staying more than two hours. So far, we got to spend 3-4 hours outside and it's just noon time. Oh well, I can't complain, but I know mom is tired like hell and also ran with me a lot despite of having a very nasty cold :(

We work together a lot and we love it big time but I wish mom got over this very nasty cold. Yesterday she could barely walk.

I know, I know.....:D

So you read about my bath yesterday because I rolled in mud while playing with Blanca. Well today I got a 3rd bath in 3 or 4 days because I did something that my humans don't like. I rolled in poop. Whaaaaaaa? You don't like it? Come on, it was fun. I still have my Golden smile all over my face, that's how funny it was! And come on, Blanca did the same!

Mom kept telling me on the street that I am a pig, not a Golden Retriever, and that I stink like hell. OH really? I loooooooove the smell!

PS I also ate. Blanca did, too, we shared it! Funny, because we don't share stuff like that, today we did. We really can't understand our families, what's the big deal?

Also, our dear friend Hugo had his second hand food :D Yep, he ate poop. His own at least :D What Blanca and I ate was NOT ours hahaha.

I am grounded! Help.

PS today Mr Liviu took me in the school to the principal. You know we prefer the park of the nearby school so I was taken to the vice-principal. Not for bad behavior, the reason was that people love me and Blanca. Both Blanca and I were inside the school. This happened BEFORE I rolled in poop :D

Rainy day :D

I guess you know what a Golden Retriever does very well when it rains.




As a consequence mom turned me into a little jedi:
And she thought it would be funny if she took a photo. Oh well...the nerve! To embarrass me in front of the whole world...

Mom and dad are extremely proud of me all the time, but now more than ever!

Sooooooo, I got one bone from mom and the deal has always been I can only chew on an old T-shirt that is mine now. I tried to show mom that I didn't like the idea so after a few seconds I tried to go on the couch, got busted right away, and then I tried to go to the bedroom, in bed, got busted right away again. All mom had to say was "I am gonna take that bone from you if you don't go on your T-shirt!" So I went. I spent a great deal of time there, behind mom's chair, but I wanted to spend some time with daddy, too. Suddenly mom sees my extremely cute head coming out of the bedroom, carrying a sock. Oh well...I thought...I am getting busted again. But no, not to worry, I can steal and carry socks! So mom and dad discovered my entire plan - I had taken the sock because it is fabric and because I am allowed to take socks and I used it to replace the T-shirt and placed the bone on it! I really wanted a more comfortable place and I really wanted to stay with daddy so I took the matter in my hands ...erm mouth and solved it!

Needless to say problem solving is my specialty! I got lots of praise for being so smart and for trying not to mess everything up!

Did I mention I did not leave any mess?

Happy Birthday Emma!

Woohoo time flies so fast. Emma is 10 months already! Sweetest girl ever, full of substance, lots of energy, and an incredible sweetness. Friendly with everyone, including the ones who are not so friendly (people and animals included).

Today she got a special treat- we got to stay hours and hours outside, from early morning, till late evening. We took some indoor breaks in order to relax a bit. It was such a lovely day! Pretty warm, sunny...

Emma and Blanca:

And the theme of the day (and any day) STICKS:

Mad play time

In the past few days I played with Blanca, and yesterday Blanca's mom and mom noticed they both wished they had a camera to record us. We were playing so nicely together...

Mom said she would bring the camera the next day. CAN YOU BELIEVE she forgot???? Come on mom, how hard can it be to remember one thing. Among many other things...Let's hope we have a camera next time we meet. That is tomorrow! If not...I will be a little upset and continue to dig a hole with Blanca :D hehe you have no idea how big it was!

One another thing mom is extremely proud of - I had a LOT of diversions around me - lots kids calling my name and trying to pet me, Blanca playing around me and I ignored everything during a small training session! Perfect recalls, perfect sits, perfect weaves (through legs), name it! In the end there was applause and lots of congratulations for me! I was ecstatic!

I also heeled off leash with a kid. Guess why? He had a stick and a tennis ball :D I wanted them both so I figured if I heel nicely I could have them.
