Rain stopped play.
Rain stopped play. Seriously. ☔️
With only a few weeks to go, we're due to go to George's training class and it's been raining. Raining a lot.
We've been doing the lessons outside of class and George is doing very well. We've covered everything for his Kennel Club Bronze award, we are pretty much just re-enforcing what has been taught.
So, in principle, missing a week isn't going cause much of an issue but it feels a bit like one.
With only four weeks of the course left (one of which is not a teaching week) we hope that he has done enough to pass but we'll find out on test night.
So, we're not going tonight. Rain stopped play. We'll do some practice at home as we always do but you'd like to get him in the test arena to see how he's really doing.
Not long now. 😬
Wrong end of things…..
There was this little kid who had a bad habit of sucking his thumb. His mother finally told him that if he didn't stop sucking his thumb, he'd get fat.
Two weeks later, his mother had her friends over for a game of bridge. The boy points to an obviously pregnant woman and says, "Ah, ha! I know what you've been doing!"
A famous art collector is walking through the city when he notices a mangy cat lapping milk from a saucer in the doorway of a store.
He does a double take, as he notices that the saucer is extremely old and very valuable. He walks casually into the store and offers to buy the cat for two dollars.
The store owner replies, "I'm sorry, but the cat isn't for sale."
The collector says, "Please, I need a hungry cat around the house to catch mice. I'll pay you twenty dollars for that cat."
And the owner says "Sold," and hands over the cat.
The collector continues, "Hey, for the twenty bucks I wonder if you could throw in that old saucer. The cat's used to it and it'll save me having to get a dish."
And the owner says, "Sorry buddy, but that's my lucky saucer. So far this week I've sold sixty-eight cats."
