LL: Lets go look at some Golden Retriever puppies.
BM: But we don't have any puppy food!
LL: Well, we aren't going to get the first puppy that we see. We have to research this. We have to take our time and make the the best choice, silly.
They hop in the truck and drive the 2 hours to Sierra Vista, AZ where they saw this:
My beautiful mug.
LL: She's perfect, we'll take her!!!!!
BM: She IS perfect, but what ever happened to researching and not taking the first one we see?
LL: What are you talking about? Just look at her sweet face!
*Scratch, Scratch, Scratch. Pen swishes over checkbook. Man holding checkbook has a very smug look on his face. I lick it.*
They were sold, and my work began.
The peeps stopped at a big store on the way home and purchased puppy chow. (BM didn't rub it in that he was right- TOO much. ) They also got a DRD- a Dog Recording Device. Known in other families as a "digital camera."
They started documenting what I was doing- and I started my work right away.
cuddled wth Lovie Lady...
and slept some more. (It was a long ride to my forever home.)
I trained LL to give me treats.
Me: When I sit, you give me a treat- Ready?
Me: Now, give me the treat. Good peep!
Training LL was hard work, so I had to sleep some more.
I modeled for my adoring fans...
and caught up on my beauty rest.
I taught BM to give me treats too.
Me: Ok, lets go over this again. I shake your paw, you give me that tasty morsel. Got it?
It wasn't all work, I taught the peeps to take time to play everyday...
and I even taught Uncle T the game of tug!
The peeps were coming along very nicely, but their training would not be complete with out learning to throw.
I taught them to throw balls...
It was hard work *yawn* but the peeps turned out just fine...
and I could finally sleep...some more.
