Every once and awhile, just when I think I have it all figured out, I get shot back to the reality that I really don't. This week had one of those days in it. One of those days when you think, "why did I do that, I know better". Oh well, I learned my lesson and the lesson was, don't walk two high-prey drive girls together after dark past a house with a small white dog outside. To say it was embarassing is an understatement. They squealed, they howled, they lost their minds...certainly not a good display of canine etiquette. So, now we work on the "pass-by" and the "leave-it" commands and try to do better next time.
When we got home, the conversation went like this:
Me - well, I hope you two are happy with yourselves!
Veil - I don't know what you are talking about...we didn't catch that little white thing. You know I was trained for that.
Me - Veil, you only raced in 5 races AND you are retired!! AND it was not a fake rabbit!!
Maddy - You seem upset, maybe you should take some of my herbal calmer.
Me - Maybe so, Maddy, maybe so. Ok, so we all learned a lesson here right? You don't act like hyenas in public and I won't put you in a situation you can't handle.
