Puppy Training

by Meghann on September 17, 2009

Maddie and I had out first of eight puppy training classes this evening.

It was the first class, so there was a lot of talking and explaining of what to expect out of the class. I’ve already picked up a couple pointers that I am going to start incorporating in my training at home.

She was a ball of energy the whole class. She LOVES playing with other puppies and I can tell she is really going to enjoy this.

The best part was during the class a little girl sat next to me and spent the whole time messing with Maddie. I was afraid Maddie was going to bark at her or try to nip, but she was a perfect angel. I was a very proud Mama!

Let’s hope she stays this good for all 8 classes!!

Now, for some reason my lunch today did not hold me over at all. Less then 2 hours later my stomach was growling pretty loudly. Luckily, I was able to provide a pretty hearty snack to hold me over until dinner.

I had a Strawberry Chobani with the last of my Honest Foods Blueberry Vanilla Crackle Plank.

Yum!

Since our classes started at 7:00 and I live less then 5 minutes from the PetSmart, I decided to eat dinner before hand.

I was feeling pretty lazy and took the easy route with an Amy’s Burrito

I topped my burrito with some Trader Joe’s Peach Salsa.

I am really excited about these Puppy Training classes. I hope I am able to work with Maddie to really make them effective. Cross your finger for me. We’re going to need it!

Lately I have been living vicariously through one of my co-worker’s daughters. She is on her school’s cross country team and he could not be more proud. After each meet he’ll discuss her stats with me and what she is doing to work on improving her speed. We swap race stories and strategies. He’ll talk more »

Confessions of a Garmin Addict

September 17, 2009

I followed my normal routine this morning. I got up, got dressed, had a small snack, drank a small glass of water, got all my electronics on and headed out the door. It wasn’t until I got to the bottom of my stairs that I realized the beeping noise my Garmin usually makes when it more »
