I have explained our training dilemmas with Tipsy and I was posed with the challenge by a dear friend to work with her for 10 minutes every day and that should get her inspired to walk on a lead for us. Leave it to me to accept that challenge than wait until two days before the day I NEED her to walk on a lead to do the steps of the challenge – I AM SO BAD!!!

She walked! It wasn’t pretty but she walked three or four steps. I put Smoochie into the “cult-de-sac-show ring” because there, she walks like a champ! (not in the real ring course!) That was until today – Not so pretty on her trip around this afternoon but she made it and hopefully inspired Tipsy to take more steps tomorrow.. Dammit man! I have my work cut out for me!
