Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

I give mommy the paw for everything too - but you gotta work on that finish - it is very important - i am a expert at this - give the paw later

Obedience is so fussy huh?!
Could your Mom try luring you round with a bit of food till you re-remember it?

We can see the problem you are having with your human!
How is a dog supposed to concentrate with all that giggling. We thought you did great!
We can't do any of that clever obedience stuff.

Hi Sammie! I'm working on the same stuff right now at my class, too! Those "arounds" are tough, aren't they?! Keep plugging away!
Your pal,

What a fun video!

Sam said...

Marge wants to let you know that finishing is actually a lot of fun. And she does NOT like obedience!

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Samantha, we don't care what any-doggy says, we think you are smart and beautiful and wonderful and lovely.

Lorenza said...

Hmmm... someone needs more training... and I don't think is the one who has 4 legs!
I loved your video!
Kisses and hugs

Oh, that brings back memories. Except we had a much more strict trainer. She would never have allowed me to repeat the command, just make the correction. And she would have flipped out if I had laughed or said any of those other things like "move around, silly." Her opinion was that the dog heard me the first time...no need to repeat myself.

Of course, it looks like you had a lot more fun. Given another choice, I would go with your kind of trainer.

GoldenSamantha said...

Reply: The funny thing about the vid is that the trainer IS very strict, but all heck blew out at the end, when the bunch of us in the room laughed first at my comment (which can barely be heard - thank goodness!) and then at Sammie's refusal to react to a command that she's never failed hehe! I was so frustrated!
Sammie's Mom!

Sierra Rose said...

Sammie! You did soooooo good! Keep that mommy in line!! She needs some practice :)!!
Can you ask your teacher when I can start coming by for lessons?

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose
