An Exciting Weekend for Boaz!

Boaz’s Weekend


This has been an interesting weekend for both Boaz and Mel and I. After all the rain last week, I was feeling pretty down. I was exhausted from coming back from our vacation, where Bo, myself and my MIL has gone to get away from the house here in White Hall. We had packed up all the house except the kitchen and laundry room for old carpet to be removed and new vinyl plank flooring to be installed.
It looks great, but I’m actually still unpacking and going through stuff. While I’m unpacking, I’m organizing and throwing lots of stuff away. Boaz has been having a field day sneaking around, getting stuff out of boxes and chewing them up.
He’s loving to find papers and old pens which we are finding pieces of everywhere we go. He even tore Mel’s crossword puzzles up and the Sunday paper. For chewing up the paper, he was banished to outside until Mel finished reading every single word on what was left of the paper.

But Bo has also had a great weekend with several long walks and run-jogs with Mel. Bo loves these walks and Mel says he does just fine on them but they both come back with their tongues hanging out. Continue reading

Today is Saturday and I took Boaz and my husband, Mel, to obedience class today. We had an hour long training class.

Today,  our Trainer, Candee Tietel, worked with us on the following:

  • Leave It
  • Walking on Heel on a leash
  • Going up and down steps
  • Getting in and out of the car without having to be picked up
  • Waiting at the  door before rushing  in or out

I had recently ordered a seat protector for the backseat of my car, because Bo loves to splash through mud and water and his feet leave marks on the leather seats.  So I ordered a seat cover to use and today was the first day we used it.  Mel said it was no ;problem getting it on the seat back and bottom and Bo seemed very happy laying on it.  I’m going to do a review on it soon.(Solvit 62313 Waterproof Bench Seat Cover for Pets).
