We finally got a calmer week after the excitement of the past while and even better we are off work from tomorrow until the end of the week so good times ahead! We don’t have too much planned but we’ll be sure to get out on some nice adventures with Bonnie 🙂
At the doggy event we went to last week we got Bonnie a teddy bear from the teddy tombola at the event for only 50p! Total bargain and as you can see below it has been a huge hit – total devastation to the poor bear.
To the frustration of Bonnie I have re-stuffed it and I’m even considering sewing up the holes to make it last that bit longer since she seems to enjoy it so much! Talking about sewing I have a sewing project inbound – I’m just waiting on a delivery of a quilting ruler before I can start properly as apparently I do not have a straight eye in my body! Anyone want to take a guess at what I’ll be making?
We didn’t get up to much out of the ordinary this week but on Sunday we went to the Valley leisure park for a visit with Bonnie (we were on the hunt for Kabutos in Pokemon Go but no luck unfortunately!). We had a fun time walking around and building up Bonnie’s endurance with her backpack as well as doing some off lead time and practising tricks.
She was fab walking past adults and children but we had to retreat back to the car when a woman with a small dog on a retractable leash and who would not stop squeaking a squeaker toy near us caused Bonnie to become really frustrated, so we had to quickly leave the area. We had a bit of fun with tricks at the car park to calm her down and hopefully not leave any bad impressions of the place but she recovered really quickly the little star!
After we left there was a bit of a delay in our journey – some geese decided to cross the road! Thankfully all the drivers were very respectful and gave them plenty of time to get past.
We have also been trying out some new tricks this week but since this is getting so long already I think I’ll do a separate post with our training updates! We found this photo from the event last week so I thought I would share it. I’m so proud of her being able to be this calm so close to other dogs considering we had to drop our training classes earlier this year because she wasn’t able to cope. She continually impresses us with her improvements ❤
