Flowers and More Flowers

This week has been particularly boring for me, mostly because the humans are always busy and because it's always raining...

I made agility class a little more interesting on Tuesday. I decided I wouldn't do the first, middle, and last pole on the weave poles. I also went veeerrry slow for part of the class. And then I decided to go veeerrry fast for the next part. I also thought that barking at my human Lizzy would be fun and could be quite entertaining for everyone else to watch, so I barked at Lizzy for a long, long time. She couldn't get me to be quiet, hee hee.

I tried so sit in Lizzy's bowl of food again the other day. I guess it was only a once-in-a-lifetime thing, 'cause Lizzy saw me coming and was able to save her food from getting squished under my butt. I'll have to figure out a new plan on how to get my human's food...

Today the sun actually came out by supper time! Lizzy took me outside to take some pictures of me by the flowers. I must say, I was quite bored. While the sun was out, I'd much rather chase my tennis ball... Oh well.

Goody goody, I'm King of the Flowers...

Can you see the excitement on my face? Nope... Can I chase my tennis ball now?

Well, if I can't chase my tennis ball, I might as well make good use of this time and eat the flowers. Mmmm, tasty.

Sometimes we just need to put up with these cameras to make our people happy - that gets me food. I was really hoping your sit-in-bowl trick would work out long term. Maybe if she's distracted?

Hi, Sparky...

Did your Mom let you play with the tennis ball after you started eating the flowers??

You are sooo smart...You always seem to figure out a way to get what you want...HaHa...

Petey said...

Hi Sparky!

Boy, that agility class sounds like fun. I did a little one in Central Park at the Dog Fair and mostly because Mommy was holding treats for me at the end of every challenge! (Jumping through the tire was hard!)

Aren't tennis balls just the best? If only they were dipped in bacon....

Your pal,

Petey

Moco said...

Good job. If you can't sit in the food you might as well eat the flowers. What is up with all that barking? Are you part terrier?

River said...

Good pictures. When you come up with a new food bowl plan let us know!

Butchy & Snickers said...

Poor Sparky,
We know how boring it is when all it does is rain, rain, rain. You just had too much energy to release at class this week huh?? We've had a few days in a row now with no rain, but it could come anytime again. We've lucked out and missed a few big storms, they went about 60 miles south of us. Your flowers are very pretty. Mama likes those. Did they really taste good?? Hope you have a fun weekend.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Booker the Treeing Walker said...

I love what you decided to do at agility class! What fun. At the dog park, I just bark and bark -- I stand all by myself and bark about nothing at all. It's pretty funny because everyone thinks I'm talking to THEM personally and they say all these stupid H-man things to me ... and they are all wrong ... good going!

Khyra The Siberian Husky said...

Sparky!

Way to go at khlass!!

Pretty khommendable performance!!!

I'm sure your human will furget and let your butt get her food again - she's human - they aren't as smart as we are!!!!

Hugz&Khysses,
Khyra

Sparky, you look so adorable with all the new flowers! Be glad you have rain because we haven't had rain for almost 1 whole month. Its been hot, hot and hot! My back yard is not green, but is yellow.

My Mama likes to make me pose with flowers too, but fortunately, there has not been any for me to pose with!

Hee, hee...

You sound very creative at agility class. What's wrong with a little change? Or barking? I love those pictures with the flowers even though you didn't have fun. Pink is your color.

Hello Sparky!!

This week has been a bit boring to us as well. The weather has been bad in Toronto.

For some reasons we can't view your photos so we'll be back later!

Hope you'll have a pawsome weekend!

Hero said...

Bleh. I'd rather be chasing a ball than posing with silly flowers too!! Did your mom let you pee on them first? At least that would make the photo shoot kind of worth it.

much love,
Hero

Wiry wags pal, Eric x

Oh Sparky you are soooo patient with Lizzy! You did very well in your photo shoot. Maybe next time she will let you hold your ball for the photo shoot! Now that would be cool.

Minou and Birdie hate the rain too. It is supposed to be nice this weekend though - fingers and paws crossed.
Where do you take your agility classes? We were going to sign up at the rec centre but they have already started. Minou needs to go back to school.
