    DefaultParker starts obed class

    Heh. Tonight's his first night. He's got his crayons all sharpened, his sack lunch is packed, he's got a quarter to buy a carton of milk, and an apple for the teacher.

    When I think of what these classes meant to me and Wesley over the years: They were, at first, his salvation because owing to our utter cluelessness as Lab owners, Wes had become a first-class brat around the house (hard to believe, I know) and was literally on the verge of being re-homed. So the boot-camp style taught him to behave him self, settle down, and become a welcome member of our family.

    As the years went by, I started setting goals: CGC. CD. RN. And then he kinda plateaued and I stopped competing. But by then, he was solid in his status as a demo dog. Our instructor had lost her prior demo dog and although she had pups, they weren't ready. So Wes stepped in. And how he loved showing off. The HAM!

    And then we got into theapy work and earned his designation and we started his 'career' in a whole new, other direction.

    Very satisfying. All around.

    And so Mr. Parker.... What a grand adventure tonight will, I hope, begin to open up for you. I have expectations, yes, but we'll take things as they come and revise along the way. Because what I learned most from Wesley is that it isn't so much the destination as the fun of finding the proper route.

    Oh goody!! You certainly sound excited about the start of yet another new adventure with Parker.

    I, and probably all of JL, will be waiting with baited breathe for the first of many "Parker goes to school" stories.

    My pretty girl, Lexi!

    Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
