Tonight was a very wonderful event put on by some very special people. It is called Cabernet for a Cause. It's an evening of wine tasting, silent auction bidding, dressed up people, and seemingly everyone else's puppy but mine behaving beautifully. From the moment we walked in all Churry wanted to do was play with the other puppies or JUMP on and play with her puppy raiser "substitute when I'm not able", Mandi. It was embarassing! As the night went on she settled in and showed some of the good manners I know she has. But, she simply cannot behave like that if she intends to be an assistance dog someday! Sigh! I've got a lot of work to do in the next few months. But, where, I don't know. I take her everywhere I can think of and she is spot on good as gold. Where does one go where we will encounter other dogs?
Here are a few pictures of the moments where she was remembering her manners.
|Maybe when she realized she was the spokesdog for the event she decided she should settle down and represent herself like a good puppy.|
|My dear friend, Sheila, attended the event with me.|
|Flat Stanley was visiting from New Jersey. He had traveled to Kansas with her brother, Marco's, raiser. Unfortunately, Marco didn't get to come. But, we heard he's doing well.|
|No, she's not embarrassed about her behavior here, she's just doing a down under like I asked. We've been working on eating establishments and she's doing really well.|
