5/27 A great Sunday

Quincy and I had a really good day so far. We went for a walk, and we played fetch at least three separate times out in the yard. She loves chasing and retrieving her pink ball. Plus I put away another boxful of stuf, and took myself out for lunch before I went grocery shopping.

A good day.

I wish Kirby could fetch properly. He loves for you to throw it and he runs gets anything you throw, but he will not let go of it when he brings it back....any suggestions? Glad you had a good day...my was too...First thing I did was look in at ALL my boys sleeping in their own beds..I was in mommy heaven today. I was sad to say goodbye so soon to Adam, but it made it easier to say goodbye and send him out to the camp out. I hope they are having a good time.

Nope, Rob. Nothing interesting. Some things for the house (because it's a Walmart Super Center) and a few groceries. I did buy Q a new toy and some more MilkBones. She's doing well in training when I use treats or toys. She can sit, lie down, and comes when I whistle. I'm having fun training her.

Cindy, I don't know. But I use the command "Drop" when she doesn't automatically drop the ball or toy. When I say drop I gently touch the side of her jaw. If necessary I used to touch both sides of her jaw. Not with any pressure on it, just touch while I said "Drop." Now she pretty much does it on her own or when I just say the word. Another thing is to have him sit or lie down before you get him to drop it. That way he'll be in a more relaxed state. If he's standing he'll have plenty of muscle to play "tug of war." That bit of wisdom is from Cesar Millan. :)

I'm so glad you got to spend time with Adam. That's one of the best surprises of the century. Jim and Karen are sure good at that, aren't they?
