We're looking forward to starting
training with Sparkle next week. Just Lawrence will be going to the first class
because I have a city council meeting that I can't get out of.
Attached are a couple pictures of Sparkle from last weekend. One playing with
the big stick that Jake found and another with Sparkle laying on the couch with
me. Today we had both dogs out at the park playing fetch with the tennis ball
for over an hour, and Sparkle was so much fun. She always runs full speed ahead
after the ball and is getting much better about dropping the ball when she
brings it back. Other than some occasional whining when she wants attention,
Sparkle hasn't had any behavioral issues at home with us. She still is very
nervous and upset about other dogs when we are out walking, but we are trying
hard to be patient with her.
