Sad face (NOT!)
You see, Mom made me take the Good Canine Citizen test on Thursday and I did SO good with all my commands!! Mom said she was so proud of me! BUT....I'm not good when my mom goes out of the room. It's called 'supervised separation! I don't want to be separated from my mom!
Someone has to hold my lease for 3 minutes while mom walks out of the room or building! 3 minutes! Do you know how long that is in dog minutes! A very, very long time! At least for me it is...so I didn't pass...you have to pass all of the"criteria" (that's a big word I kept hearing mom and the 'tester' talk about!) and supervised separation was the last test we had to do.
If I'm at home, I don't care that mom leaves me. I usually just go in my crate (mom lets me loose when they leave now - she said it's because I'm so good!). So, now mom is trying to get me used to her walking out of a building without me when we go other places.
HA...does she really think this will work! Must be...she keeps leaving me with other humans and walks out of my sight. I am getting better but I'm still whining...Mom said I'll get used to it because she wants me to be a therapy dog (like Mandy). I think it would be fun and nice to have a job of visiting people in the hospital(s)...so guess I'll keep trying to get used to my mom leaving me...just wish it wasn't as long as 3 minutes! So does mom!
