Well, this is pretty cheesy, but last week Lucy graduated from a 6 week training class! Woohoo!
We worked on training her at home but I became obsessed with the idea of taking her to the lake and seeing if she likes swimming. Her feet are slightly webbed, so I think she is built for it and might love it! BUT, Andy had a great point - we can't take her to the lake until she listens/minds us better. So, we signed up for a class with Sean at PetSmart (at 100 Oaks).
She (and we!) learned a lot but we still have a lot more to work on- like coming consistently when called and laying down. For some reason, she refuses to learn how to lay down on command. We're going to take the intermediate class with Sean later this fall to continue working on training with her. I don't think the lake is in our future this summer - I just don't think she listens well enough yet.
We got to pose with a little graduation cap on her - it was so hard to get a photo while she was squirming around and trying to fight the hat!
Happy family! :)
P.S. Andy's tattoo is a 45 adapter in case you're wondering! A lot of people ask him about it because they don't know what it is!
