hi bloggie pals,

It's been awhile since the last training update.
 every Saturday i still do the usual, 
head to grad skool with the usual suspects-
except my training doesn't stop therah.   

And then there is my real-life NORDUDE training.
see, one of my goals is to be able to play with my cuzin, Nordude!

...but take a look at this training footage.
it's got me scratchin' my head?? woo'll see.
first i need to give woo the setup.

 remembah a couple of months ago..
we were finally close enough to touch nozes &
i gave his fuzzbutt a thorough examination 
fur the first time. woot woot!
(click here - 4 those who don't know or can't remembah)

both of us were on-leash- mostly b/c 
he luvs to jump his long tennessee leggies right on your head!
and then who knows if i go ruffian on him.

the other day, i tagged along on his walkies-
through the trails and of course, off to the froggie pond,
where he unleashes his mr. berserko-nez on his usual suspects.
see fur yourself- click here. he's coocoo.

well, i become a little unglued when other doggies run around,
well move period. 
my training requires me to practice 'watching' calmly or nicely.
(although sometimes i'm trying to play too- it just doesn't 'look' pretty
-could easily be misconstrued if woo know what i mean)

click on pic 2 biggify.

okay, now fur the actual footage shown below
or click here.

yep, i had to watch HIM have ALL the FUN!
what! how?? who?? huh??

i did move to a shady location & waited patiently.
we're talking 50 minutes until he was finished.
only so much fun woo can watch.

what wasn't shown
-the part when he charged right towards me!
we bumped noses, he ran off so i would chase him.
oh, if only i could chase him! how fun would that be!
( tm showed no hackles, no grr, nothing- she luvs him) 

next time.. thinking i play in the froggie pond & he watches!

yep yep,

Click & treat

Tula! You were awesome! It will be fun to watch you hunt frogs and Norwacked has to watch. We'll see how that goes!

I hope we do get to meet when we're back in Massachusetts. Hopefully,with an open ended vacation I'll be more willing to leave my, mom and dad for little bits of time...

word verification: prankyho...wtf?

Hi Tula - sorries I never visit, but I always hear about you - you are furry famous! I had to see this post, cause Nordude and me are pals and I wanted to see what the cuzzies were up to. Now I see. Yes... Next time you must do the froggie hunting while Norwood watches hehehe!
Hugs xoxoxo

Mango said...

Sitting around in the shade sounds like a good deal to me. Watch out for Norweed. He is crazy. But I think next time he should have to watch you.

We thought you were very patient there, Tula. We even saw your tail wagging. We would love to see you in the water and Norwood watching, but we bet that is going to be as much of a challenge for him as it is for you.

Listen we think that you did really well..We had the pleasure of being with your cousin this past weekend... HAHAHAH he is cracker jack crazy only made worse by a bunch of nuthead terriers( 2 of whom are a bit of nut cases themselves and we mean US don't ya know.. I think Norwood thought we were CRAZY when we saw a squirrel and were too close together and got a little shall we say REACTIVE and attacked each other HAHAHAHAH I mean doesn't everyone??? Love A+A

Jacks, Narra, Tuchuck, and Rousseau said...

Yo, Cookie Face! We're finally visiting again! (Tho we have checked in just to see your super cookie face...) You and Norwood are def on the road to a harmonious future--you guys rock! And we're very excited for you about the new house! WOOHOO!!

Have fun!!

Ya Know, it's just not fair. In fact, it's down right discriminate. smaller dogs get to go cracker and does anyone say a thing about it? nooooooo. just because you're HOOOGE and muscle-ly and can prolly squash him doesn't mean you can't get to play cracker too. I say since you have your mental leader on, it's probably as good as brain surgery. that your momma should throw caution to the wind, and let you go cracker on that cracker dude, or at least go cracker along next to him or something. besides, how much harm can you really do? i mean, he's got size and speed on his side. geesh. all this worry over nothin' prolly. totally!

Wild Dingo said...

Darn it! I walk away 3 seconds from the keyboard to go get a cup of water, and I find my cracker dog Loki at my keyboard penning, err, forging my digital signature on unsound advice! Disregard! do NOT trust the Cracker GS/FMD! His motivations are all about improving his public relations and upgrading his label from naughty/cracker to "not as bad as THAT one!" stinker.

way to go TM for keepin' it real! show 'em indifference, oh yah. that's where all the respect is.

Now its time to beat the GS/FMD

The Thundering Herd said...

Nordude may have a career here - go be all cracker dog while other dogs learn to wait.

Noah the Airedale said...

That was great Tula. You look pretty happy with your waggy tail.
We hope soon you two can play together.

Oh we did have chicken wings in our bowls that day for breakie. Sometimes we have chicken necks or legs.


Bruce said...

I think it IS YOUR turn next time Tula. But for now it's time to celebrate...what brand of champagne do you prefer? Or would you like a nice cold beer?
Congratulations Tula...you're doing GREAT!
love ya,
Bruce the cat:)

Cezar and Léia said...

We love Luna

Someday you will get to chase him, Tula! And when you catch him you can give him a wedgie!
