FFHT - Our Resume

This month's special inclusion is:  " I knew I would remember this forever because . . ."

For all the information on our monthly FFHT, click HERE.

Our mom and dad think it's very impawtent for doggies to have lessons.  They said that doggies with lessons are able to pawticipate more with their families cuz they can do more things and go more places.  Also, mom says that lessons teach the hoomans and doggies how to communicate better so they are good for that reason too.  Me and Stanley just think learning is fun!

Me and Stanley started our lessons when we were youngsters.  We went to Pet Smart University (PSU) and our teacher's name was Tonya.  She was also an animal behaviorist.  Miss Tonya was Bert's teacher too.  Many of you know Bert.  His mom, Miss Vickie, recommended Miss Tonya to us as a good teacher.  We loved her!

Me and Stanley had different ways of learning.  When Stanley was given a command he snapped to attention, saluted dad, and shouted out "Yes Sir, Right Away Sir!"  But I am much more mellow, so when mom gave me a command I would say "Okie Dokie" and then do it sometime in the next few days.  Mom says I never once did the command when I was learning it at school (in class).  

One day, I was feeling sorry for mom so I decided I would do a command PAWFECTLY!  It was the day we learned how to do a SIT-STAY with the distractions of others shopping in the store.  I could tell mom's expectations were really low as she told me to SIT and STAY.  I nearly giggled cuz I knew my plan!  I did it!  Yes I did!

Shoppers pushed their carts past me and I didn't blink, even when they said "Good boy" to me!  I did the command pawfectly.  Mom was so delighted! Finally our teacher shouted "Everyone back to the classroom!" So mom said "RELEASE". BUTT I was still surprising her so I stayed right there in my SIT-STAY.  Mom said "Release" again but I stayed.  She held out a treat but I obeyed the command.  Mom started laughing, saying I was "stuck" and finally had to pick me up.   I knew I would remember this forever because mom was so happy and so proud of me! And that day I promised I would do better in my lessons.

Me and Stanley graduated from our Puppy Manners Class.

And then we took the Intermediate Class and learned a bunch of tricks (Goose's mom always likes me to do a trick where I crawl on the floor like an army man).  And finally, we took the Advanced class!

At the end of the Advanced Class we took the test for our CGC (Canine Good Citizen). This was a picture of me during my test.

And guess what?? We passed!  We are proud of our accomplishments and so are our pawrents!

  18. Crikey ..... how good are you blokes?? I too have been to school. I also passed with flying colours. I was great at school ...... BUT ...... I'm not so great at home!! I loved your sit/stay story. You sure showed your Mom, aye?? No wonder you'll never forget that!!

  19. OMD!!!! OMD!!!! OMD!!!!! You knows I got kicked outta puppy school??! hehehehe Yuppers...they said I was too much of a distraction, so I had to go. I was happy, butts Ma was all embarrassed and said that I was 'a lot'. I don't know exactly what that means, butts I thinks it's a compliment...☺
    Anyhu, I am not a PAWSOME CGC like YOU GUYS!!!! Holy Helper Dogs!!! I am the gurlfuriend of a STAR!!!! And a mighty HANDSOME star at that!!! OMD, that pic of you with your graduation hat on...swoooooon!!! ahhhhhh....
    I am so proud of you guys, and I wish I had your skills, butts maybe if I had a pawsome teacher like Tonya, I would be well behaved too! My trainer said that it would take years to get me to that point, and at 100 green papers and hour, Ma just didn't have that much dough. So, here I am. Hyperbutt. And Ma has learned to work around it, and keep trying to get me betters. It's a tough job, butts there are lots of treaties involved, so I humor her! BOL!! You guys are mighty lucky doggies fursure!
    I will be lookin' up at the stars tonight Murphy!!! Thinkin' of you!! ♥

    pees: Ma's my-grains have been rearing their ugly head this week, so she said she will try and get my FFHT in this weekend...late of course, butts that is my burden to bear..☺

  20. Y'alls are full of the smarts! Maybe I should send Shiver and Chico over and you can train them. It'll take a lot of patience, but I have a feeling you could do it.

  21. Wow! We knew that you Doods were smart, but we had NO IDEA that you had your Masters! BOL! You were probably both homecoming kings and most popular! I know you were the cutest.

  22. Murphy, you and Stanley are such good students! I know mommy is so proud. My girls went to PSU and took the same classes as you, we have our CGC as well, but we don't have beautiful blue vesties like you guys got! Those vests are Fly!!
