Shirley's Last Class

       Today was Shirley's last class, which consisted of an obedience test. This was good preparation for Shirley, because she is going back on December 10th. For the past few weeks we have been going over basic commands, curb training, and going to all our regular places which gives me a chance to incorporate all of her commands. We will continue to do outings to prepare her for college. Shirley has become a big part of my life, and will be hard to move forward without her. But we know why we did this, and I am proud to participate in this program. I know that Shirley will excel in whatever she is assigned to do, and that eases the transition a little.

Riding the Bus

Go Emily
What an action packed day! We arrived at the Altamonte Mall on a chilly November day. It did not start out well because a bus arrived at our bus stop and we started to board  I was about to put  my second dollar  when somebody shouted "That is not our bus!"So that was my donation to lynx (no refunds).

Another bus came, this was ours, and we all paid and boarded on the Lynx Bus. Shirley kept fidgeting on the bus so we might practice this again. She didn't do anything bad on the bus; I just want her to be more comfortable on the bus, also when  the group does an outing we invade, there are over ten of us so it sometimes makes for a tight fit.

After we got off the bus our group did several training runs, so we could prepare for our test coming up. Shirley did particularly well, especially crossing the street. I have to work with her down stay commands a little more she can be stubborn  but she does it , other than that I think Shirley and I just have to clean up some loose ends for our last few weeks together.

We went back on the bus and arrived back at our bus stop and  that was that. Got a quick drink at a restaurant and rushed back to Orlando to meet my dad at work to take hime out to lunch .

Our AC announced yesterday that our group is getting six pups, which are all from the same litter. And I may be getting one of them. I will keep you guys posted.
