Guess what? I, Mango, am enrolled in Canine Good Citizen skool! That's right! I had my first class last week. It is really hard. I had to sit still while some lady came up and looked in my ears and touched my feet, but it paid off because after that she brushed me which felt really nice. Momma says I am only learning how to be a good citizen in the skool yard, but who cares? It is fun!
Loyal readers know that I, Mango, attend graduate skool with Miss Tula. She is HOT! Now some doggies are afraid of her, but not the Mango! No way! So a lot of the times I am partnered with her during walkie practice where you promenade around the ring as close as you can to your walking buddy.
This week we were walking so close I was almost faint from her Tula'ness. She kept sneaking looks at me and even did a grrrrr. Oh yeah, playing hard to get, right? Next week is the last class, so I am hoping to get in a quick butt sniff. Oooo la la!
We did some super duper hard recall work. Trainer dude setup a bucket of cookies and we each took turns going over and getting a cookie right out of the bucket. Nommy! But then we had to do a recall thingie past the treat jar!
Tula went first and got off to a great start. I can't believe her acceleration!
Ruh roh! Seems the treats are more interesting than her momma.
But she got it on the third try! Go Tula, go!
Me? I made it like a shot first time. Of course part of it might be trying to get away from trainer dude who is clearly a bit touched in the head all flapping his arms like a big chicken.
And again! Notice my turn of the head away from the food to demonstrate that I, Mango, made a relentlessly huge decision to go to momma and avoid the food despite my obviously emaciated and starving condition.

Yuh, and it being Halloween, check out the lovely Tulip. Subtle, but charming.
I opted for a seasonally appropriate bandanana. But I took it off halfway through school because it was kind of tight.
The DOH is still super busy, but she promised some blogging time today to visit my pals. I certainly hope so.
Mango Man! Oh yeah!
P.S. My pal, Bolo, is running a contest to show how much your humans look like you. I submitted a picture. Hehehe. You can enter by clicking here.
