Warning: Tooting a horn tonight
Tonight was graduation day for the puppy class which Tovah attended. There is awlays a fear that your dog will decide to embarrass you on graduation day. I've seen it happen many times before, even with my own dogs. I wasn't sure what would happen with Tovah but hoped as long as I remained calm and did not get stressed, she'd do well. She surpassed my expectations, performed all three of her tricks, and did beautiful down maintains (stay) with many distractions. I could not be more proud of her. At such a young age, 5 1/2 months, she has grown leaps and bounds and will only improve as she learns more.
Lesson of the day: Never underestimate your dog nor yourself.
