Once again we are joining Jodi at Heart Like A Dog for Follow-up Friday.
Jodi’s explanation: For those new to the blog, my Follow-up Friday provides me with an opportunity to update or revise a post from the previous week.
You know sometimes you post about something and you need an update but it doesn’t warrant a whole blog. Or sometimes someone made a comment that really resonated with you. Yup, Follow-Up Friday baby!
Yesterday I wrote about the pet friendly hotel we stayed in last weekend. Jodi mentioned that she had stayed at a hotel and they put her on the 5th floor that was being remodeled so that it was a pain to take her dog Sampson outside. I don’t want to mislead anyone. We had a similar issue. It was a long way for us to take the dogs out to air them. We were on the second floor, but the hotel was full of dogs so I can’t really fault the hotel. The grassy area was a long walk for a puppy. He was a good boy and made it outside each time, but not always to the grass.
There was one perk to the long walk, especially for Storm. One route outside was through the lobby. The hotel had no issue with us taking the dogs through the lobby. In the lobby area they had a popcorn maker that seemed to be popping popcorn every time Storm and I walked through. The smell was making us dream of popcorn. Storm made quite a game of finding and grabbing any little piece of popcorn that anyone had dropped on the floor. I swear she has the vision of eagles when it comes to spotting popcorn specks.
Now to Thunder’s Master test. There isn’t much to tell. He ran a nice clean land triple and then absolutely refused to give up the third bird. Nope. No-way. That is two tests in a row that he would not give up birds and was bounced because of it. We will work with him on this, but obviously if he is not going to give up the birds, he can’t run tests. He does not do it in training so it is a tough thing to correct. Dunce cap for Thunder.
I did get a couple of nice pictures of him.
Hunt test season is over for us, but hunting season will start soon. We’ll see how Thunder does with those birds.
Have a nice weekend!
