Today I woke up early because it was my first pit-ed class. I was real excited, but things started to go all wrong right away. I had to ride in the car! In a crate! I was not happy about this arrangement, so I put my toes through the sides of the crate and held on as tightly as I could. And I cried. A lot.
Eventually, after a LOT of bumping, going around corners, noise and unhappiness, we got to class. A whole lot of my friends were there and I was so happy to see them that I forgot all about the horrible car ride. Then class started. Class means I have to sit and look at the foster lady and walk nicely next to her. I had to concentrate real hard and sometimes I got confused which made me a little worried. Everyone said I did a really good job, so I must have done the right things and they must not have noticed when I was all mixed up.
Here's a picture of me practicing sit and look at home. It was harder to do with lots of other dogs and people around.
After class foster lady said "Winnie, if I buy you a seat belt and let you sit in the front, will you be quiet and calm?" I wagged my tail, so she knew that I promised to do my very best. She went into a real interesting looking place and came out with a harness to keep me safe in the front seat. I felt so much better in the harness in the front. Now I could see what was outside and keep an eye on the foster lady to make sure she was driving properly. I kept my promise and didn't cry any more.
When we got home I was super tired, so I went into my crate and took a long nap. She bothered me with the flashy camera, but I fell right back asleep, so it was OK.
(I'm not the one who adjusted the crate and made it all wavy, it was like that when I moved in, I promise).
Next week I'll go to pit-ed class again and I hope I won't get so mixed up. I wonder if I will be this sleepy after every class?
