Dogs of the Earth!!
Well,I have to say that yesterday was one of the best days I have ever had.PL2 thought that I might enjoy this event made just for us terriers called Earth Dog,and she searched and searched and found a local club and then found out they were having a day where you could see if being a earth dog was something you might like! And they were going to have all kinds of games just for dogs!!!!!!(the Urban Rat Hunt, Chuck Draw, Trail & Tree, + Water Retrieval games!) So.....PL2 thought I might enjoy that( being the huntress of the family) and PL1+2 thought Archie might not enjoy it as much, so Archie would get to go to the farm with PL1 and pick up the vegetables we get every week.(Archie has always shown a great interest in the produce that we eat and has expressed a desire to become Farmer Arch) PL2 works with a woman who also has a terrier who loves to hunt( her name is Roxanne and she is a Jack Russell and she is my new girlfriend even though we don't agree on everything.
Here is Roxanne with PL2's friend Debbie. Roxanne is asking her Mom if she can go "get em".
This is the tunnel WHERE THE RATS ARE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now Pl2 was a little nervous not being particularly fond of rats and even though they were rats she felt the tiniest bit sorry for them,but she was told they were tranquilized( they would have to be WITH US THERE!!!)They are in a little cage and the thing, is you have to go through a tunnel to get them. You also have to take all you jewelry off(collar and leash) and PL2 was very nervous about that as I am not shall we stay stellar with the Come command,but as you can see it was fenced in and I ONLY HAD EYES FOR THOSE RATS!!!!!!
The people from the Earth dog Club said that as we were all beginners we should see the rats first. This is Roxanne checking them out....She was in heaven!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OK get ready HERE I AM CHECKING OUT THESE SUCKERS! Once I really realized what was in there there was no stopping me and the Earth dog lady said"Oh Boy we have a live one here!!!"
Then other dogs went to see them( can you believe that some of our esteemed pals were actually scared!! Not me and Roxie!!!!! And I was chomping at the bit!
I actually sneaked up to the gate to try to get in!!!!
PL1+2 said that once Archie gets a little more mature he will be able to go also,( but I don't know how that will work because sometimes he is afraid of the dark and has a little night light in his crate)but he really did have fun at the farm and got to eat fresh picked watermelon with PL1.So my friends those were our adventures on this lovely summer weekend!!!! Love,A+A
