dogs at the Lilydale show

In the last post I mentioned that Penny took part in a demonstration by K9 Kompany at the Lilydale Show today. It was a tiring day because she participated in four sessions, but her tail was still wagging at the end of the day, so I'd say she had a great time.

Here she is showing 'stand calmly for a vet's examination', one of the items from Ideal Dog.

We enjoyed All Sports, which is a mix of tricks, obedience and agility. Penny loves the seesaw and it was great to have so many turns on it.

Penny looks like a pro on that see-saw & she was a good girl to stand still for a check-up. I am not like her ya know. I don't like being check by the vet & I always do things my own way. Hee!

Amber-Mae, you would stand still if you had to, I'm sure.

Well Penny did a great job, I see, and not surprisingly. What a lovely color she is and what pretty fur she has -- for some reason these photos show it off well.

Good for you, Penny! You look very happy on the seesaw. I'll bet you inspired a lot of dogs and their parents to try a new sport.

Curator, her fur is pretty. People sometimes tell me I should trim it, so she will look neater but I quite enjoy grooming her - and luckily, she likes it too.

Levi's mom, I was one of the people watching this demonstration - I think it was two years ago - and I said to myself, no matter what it takes, I'm going to make time to join this class! So I hope you are right, that we have inspired others to come along. One good thing about this class is that all the profits go to animal rescue.

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by this morning. (well, it's night where you are I think :)

I wanted to give you a heads up. I believe that the company I linked to for the Nina Ottosson games on my blog may ship to you - not sure, but they ship all over the world. May be worth checking out! You could email them and ask. You could get them faster!!!

We want all of them :(
