I passed my test!

Miracles do happen!

I am very happy to announce that I have passed my obedience training test!

I was the only doggie in the class who was given a second chance to redo the down-stay command cos during the test, I was distracted by the doggy next to me and got up without my Mummy's permission. The judges thought they should give me a second chance since I completed and passed all the other commands except for this one. Phew!

My parents were really happy and proud of me. Chow Chows are never easy to train and to think that I can pass the obedience test in my first sitting, it's a cause for celebration!

Two dogs topped my class - a lhaso alpo named Piggy (she's really good cos this was her first test and she topped the class!) and a mini schnauzer named Hugo (who failed in his first test a few years ago and has returned for his refresher class!).

I'm so glad I don't have to go for my weekly classes to do all the silly commands and trainings anymore. But I sure do miss my doggy classmates. There's Happy the golden retriever whom I love to play with, Muffin the cross breed who was always a little shy around me, Coffee the sheltie pup who is ultra cute and many others who made the classes a bit more bearable for me.

Byebye my doggy classmates! Please do say hi and sniff my butt if our path ever cross again!

Congratulations! Tests with distractions are so difficult. This is our first time visiting. Mom is on the web looking for Chow Chow lovers as she has just rescued a pretty 3 year old boy. If you know anyone in the market for a rescued chow, let us know!
You can see him on PF:

Great job with your training!
