    Default What a long week!

    Well, we've all been sick, bad cough for me and Alana (my 5 year old). My 2 year old got the cough, a bad ear infection and reaction to the same virus that covered her body with hives for 3 days, today is the first day she hasn't had more than just a few isolated areas.. The weirdest thing.. Anyways, Aldo and Katara are so big, I cannot believe my eyes on how fast these bulldogs grow!
    Last wednesday was our first puppy socialization class, we just go on out there and the puppies get to sniff and play with each other for a full hour.. very awesome class. there was an 85lb 5 month old great Dane that Aldo is fascinated with! he spent the whole class chasing her, sniffing her and walking under her, yes, under her! he would look up at her rib cage!!
    He was stunned with her long legs and elegant beauty.. sorry Aldo, but I think you're a little too short for her buddy!!
    Katara ran the whole hour and enjoyed herself, she is so much rougher than Aldo, got into some mild fights with one other dog, I am guessing she wants to dominate...
    I am only doing puppy kindergarten for one at a time, so after describing their personalities to the trainer we agreed to take Katara first.. well, she did amazingly well! I am so impressed.. She learned to sit, down, stay, stand and HEEL position with sit... pretty cool first class. I have a lot of practicing to do.. I am planning on getting Aldo in on the homework so he can be trained when he takes his class and will be easier for everybody..
    Missed the days I was away from here, trying to catch up!

    Hope your family feels better!

    We are about to start Chuy in doggy kindergarten. I'm nervous with him since we got Chelsea at 8 weeks, house training, crate training, and such went a lot easier than him than him so far (we got him at 14 weeks). Haha Chelsea did pass doggy kindergarten but has been in training level 1 since summer.
