It was at a new location, with a floor that was slick which made it harder for the dogs to run.
Spark is now the size of the big dogs...well almost. He IS the same size and color as Aria, plus they have the same collar so when they were running past in a blur at times it was hard to tell who was who!
We did an exercise that involved only the puppy raisers, well 6 of the puppy raisers. The rest of us observed and held extra dogs. I was one of the dog holders (I held Shelby for M) and Mom was one of the 6 puppy raisers. This exercise was to help us understand how our dogs minds work and how they learn.
Unfortunately, Spark, Shelby and I missed almost all of this. I took the dogs outside and didn't realize that the door locked when it was closed. I figured this out when we tried to go back in though. I decided we would wait for a few minutes to see if someone else came out with their dog. Nobody came. ( I didn't see the little button I could have pressed to have someone unlock the door for me.)
So, I figured since we were at a 24 hour emergency vet clinic, the front entrance upstairs was probably open and then I could ask someone up there how to get back to the basement (where we were meeting). That plan worked and both dogs were amazing. I had them both heeling side-by-side beside me and they had to go up the stairs like that and downstairs like that. Spark and Shelby ROCK!!!
