Next, she brought out the POINTING STICK. When the pointing stick points at something, I'm supposed to touch it with my nose. This is harder than it looks, because I am only a good dog if I touch the end of the stick, not the middle. I don't really know what this is good for, but it does involve hot dogs, so, I'm there! Sometimes I get a little too into things and try to touch the stick before its pointing at anything.
Point/touch, point /touch...
I'm actually pretty good at this, if I do say so, but its hard to photograph because my most handsome self takes up the entire frame and I am sooo quick to be a good doggie. That said, I get bored with it sooner than Mamma and I have to sit back and communicate with her, "enough point/touch already."Next up, put my footies on, among other things, the Observation Deck. Piece of cake.
About this time, Momma started whining that it was only 17 degrees out and the suds I got on her fingers had frozen them solid (they do look sort of blue) and she couldn't hold the camera anymore (whimp). So she got on her mittens and we finished up sans photos. Happy to report that I was a very good doggie and executed some more spins, some weave poles, recalls, finishes, and even a short sit / stay! Then my brain really was tired.
Mango Man! Oh yeah!
P.S. I heard there is big snow coming in today! I am worried about Momma because she is going to training (maybe agility?) out west of 495 and big snow makes it harder to get through the 495 force field. Maybe she will get out of school early? Master will be home with me because he can't work due to Tender Knife Twist in his wrist (more about that some other time). Hope he keeps my Observation Deck clear for me.
