Basic Training

Post by linny » 21 Mar 2009, 11:40

:shock: :shock: :shock:
Ambrose had his basic training test last night.......and he passed :!:
I was sooooooh pleased with him because I didn't expect him to behave.
When we arrived his little friend Bobby was there (a Bichon Frise) and they were both just wanting to play,
It's always a sign when the tongue lolls out of the side of the mouth that Ambrose will usually behave like a delinquent :roll:
I was called in for the test feeling less than hopeful.
:o :o :o he did the best test ever :shock: ....even sat and waited in the recall instead of skidding down the hall and hitting me like a number nine bus.
Phew ....glad that's over :lol: :lol:

Hi Linny,

Well done to both of you ...

... please keep up the good work and continue at your dog training club. At his age Ambrose is just coming into his delinquent age and he with set out to outwit you ... smart dogs these doodles.


Dont panic I'm sure you will cope admirably.

Mike

Thanks :) ...I was really taken aback as he has been a so and so this week :!:
he should be wearing Stella's Devils horns :roll:
he's been..
1,.stealing four cream cakes from the worktop!(yes they were as far back as I could possibly put them)
plus a half a pound of sliced ham from the carrier bag as I was putting shopping away.
2,Disemboweled a brand new dogie duvet (within ten minutes of me putting in his basket)
3, he's decided that Maizie one of our cats is much better than any toy and has started to terrorise her whenever he sees her!
The list goes on ...and on....and on
The delinquent stage has already arrived :roll:

That's all obviously to make up for being SO well behaved on the test!! :lol: :lol:
Well done for passing though- you must have been so proud :D (even if it is all a distant memory now!! :lol: )

Well done to you both.

How old is Ambrose?

I only ask because if he is over a year you might want to consider registering him as a PAT dog. I think Pets As Therapy is such a wonderful charity and it makes such a difference to peoples lives.

Lola has just passed her exam but we are waiting for our paper work to go through. Im really looking forward to getting started!!

Cheers Paul

Hi Paul,
Ambrose is seven and a half months so a little young yet.
I agree ...Pets As Therapy is a wonderful charity.
We used to have therapy goats here at Rainbow.
It's amazing to witness the rapport that builds between people who are unable to communicate with other people... and the animals
I have been moved to tears ...many times....happy tears that is :)
