Obedience School

If you were wondering how obedience school went, think back to that Simpson's episode where Santa's Little Helper goes to obedience school. Things that were different: mine was taught by an older gentleman with no trace of a British accent, I was not afraid of correcting Daisy, and there was no beef wellington. The same: Daisy's complete unwillingness to learn anything. All the dogs were able to learn how to not pull on the leash and walk nicely next to their owners while Daisy was completely unaware that she was supposed to be doing anything besides trying desperately to smell everything in a 10-foot radius.

My homework for this week: make Daisy lay down 50 times a day, practice making her wait behind me when we go through doors, make her sit before I pet her, and try to drain her of energy every day. That last one will be a special trick because I've never seen her get tired, ever. Even after running 3 miles (while I was riding a bike), she was all set to go another 3.

Yet on the bright side... look at all the new material you have to write about.

I remember that Simpsons episode because Chris and I always say "sniff that other dog's butt!" in a very commanding tone when we want to make it look like we're in charge.
How long is obedience school?

Hahahaha, I was going to mention that same "sniff that other dog's butt!" line but I see some one anticipated me.

Good luck.

I didn't know it was such a popular line. We say that all the time.
