Want To Come To School With Us?

Norma Jean thought you might like to meet her classmates, so today we took along the camera and now you can see our schoolroom.
Oh boy, here we are at school. Let's see who's here.
 First one to arrive is Norma Jean's friend Gussie. Isn't she pretty? She's a big girl, but she's very friendly and likes to play.
Gussie and Norma Jean hit it off right from the first day and seem happy to see each other every week.
Here comes Charlie. He's a very little guy, but he doesn't know it.
He likes Gussie, too and has to say hello by kissing her on the nose.
This is Chanel. She a Catahoula Leopard dog. She and Norma Jean don't like each other  so we stay away from her.
Here comes Sugar.
Here's Roscoe. Now all the students are here.
The class before us is still in session so we're all waiting outside.
Now it's time for our class to begin.
Norma Jean likes to check herself out in the mirror. She wants to be sure she looks good for class.
We each have to sit down to go over the plans for the class. First thing today is to review sits, downs and stays.
Sugar sits nicely.
Roscoe is paying attention.
Gussie does nice sits and downs.
Our instructor is demonstrating and observing our moves.
Norma Jean starting her down. Stay is very hard for this busy, bouncy girl so we're still working on that. It's coming along slowly. Today we worked on recalls and that's Norma Jean's strongest command.
Over all I'm pleased with her progress. It's much harder for her than it was for Fudge, but we're making progress and she is still my happy bouncy girl.

As long as she's happy, school will be fun! It's nice that you had sunshine for your day at school, too! Much more fun for greeting your friends.

We think Gussie looks a bit like Thor. Hope the pups get some time to play together.

Great photos!! I wish there were training classes nearby. I can't drive an hour at night to get to and from one.

You are making me so jealous, Norma Jean. I don't start school until next Wednesday and I can't wait!
You sure have cute classmates!

Yer friend,
