Well, that's a bit of a deceptive title for this post, because although Penny did in fact meet a handsome black Labrador retriever at flyball practice today, she was not one bit interested in being friendly with him.
But I'm very proud of the fact that I've remembered his name. I'm taking part in a research project that aims to help people remember names and faces, and, being a dog-blogger I realise it's way more important to remember the canine names than the human ones.
The method of remembering names is to associate something with the name.
So, today we met
Pip - just a little pip of a dog, who'll grow into something splendid;
Morgan - a black pirate who lives by the sea (for a longer explanation see my other blog);
Summer, who first moved in with her human family in the Summer (true story);
Buddy, who is every dog's best buddy (also true!)
Oh, oh! There were lots of dogs and I've only remembered four!
But it's a start...
