hi bloggiepals,

every saturday, it's time to be practice being a Good Dog in class!  Mango's momma wanted to know if it actually works-- am i, tula monstah now a converted ruffian gone good? could it be true? and who is this instructor? what is this class? can the Mango sign up?

WEll it's Good Dog 201 I told her.

so she had to see the real deal for herself.

Class starts with targeting practice and then stays.
 Look, i'm on a  15 ft. lead.. might not be the best idea-r.
as mom gulps because you know who is right next to us.
.. isn't the class rule: staring is rude!
ummm  Paul-- norwood's staring.

 it isn't all work nope, we play games like Simon Says.

Simon Says jump up and down.  Not me!.. look! there's mommie actin' a fool.

supposedly learning to come when called is most furry important.

hey what's he doing?
(quick you bettah reel me in!)

there's always time for some scratchies

then i put my best luvie eyes on the mango momma
Smiley from millan.net

hoping for some of this.. i know she wanted to!

by the end of class me & my goofball cuzin were like BFFs.
(i mean it's taken over 2 years of training to control myself- but see!)
does it matter if i still wanted to take a nibble?

now this leaves the question.. will the RH Mango himself be enrolled in
this intensive training to be a good doggie?

nope, he has other plans.

that doesn't mean she didn't sign this guy up.


Stay tuned for a bunch of good dog shananigans

Congratulations Tula...you're hard work has paid off!
your cat pal,
p.s. tell your Mom that she's the BEST to spend so much time helping you be the best you can be. You're one lucky girl!


I think you are the one staring.. staring is most rude even if I do taste like hot dogs.

I still wanna see that diploma

Tula, I can see where you would have trouble taking your eyes off of a fine looking cracker like Norwood!

Anya said...

Hi sweet Tula
Lovely post and Norwood is also there .... LOL
He cannot without you !!!

((hugs)) Kareltje =^.^=

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Tula it is amazing how well behaved you are now. All that work has been rewarded! Mommy is trying to figure out how to get Hootie from jumping up on everyone. He'll sit to greet, then jump up cause he thinks he's been so good and now deserves a jump.Oh well.

I'm just a wild & crazy guy. What can I say?!

The OP Pack said...

Tula, we think maybe we didn't know you when you were a ruffian. We all had to do those obedience classes too but Norwood wasn't there, any idea why not?

Oops! You look like your doing a good job there! Monty here could use some training. He had obedience classes before but it didn't seem to help. He is not very nice on walks when he sees other doggies! Especially since he got attacked once by 2 loose dogs.

Tula! We found you through Dexter's post on his and Mango's blog!
Darwin has an Akita frenemy, Biggie! He's growled and nipped at her so she's terrified of him, but I'm sure she'd love you!
BTW. I loved your thought bubble on Mango's blog about the fava beans and chianti! hehehehe
