For some unknown reason, the street lights in the park have been switched off for that past few weeks. This means that even with the cool headtorch I bought mummy, it’s still crazy-dark in the mornings and evenings too. Instead we’ve been sticking to the cycle paths for our walks – boring! There are no other regular dog walkers when we go so I haven’t had a chance to make any new friends. And when I do get to go to the park on my afternoon walk with daddy, none of my park friends have been about. So I’ve been feeling pretty lonely of late.
I was soooo happy when I realised training class started up again last night. My humans have started to fall into bad habits and could do with a brush-up on their heel walking, plus I got to see my friends again woohoo!!
Although Lady wasn’t there I did manage to have a little play with my buddy Ezio, he’s like Easy’s little bro:
And also with my friend Sophie:
I’m so happy to be back at class! Can’t wait till saturday so I can see my friends again:-)
What cute friends do you have, Misaki! But similis simili gaudet 🙂
My latin’s pretty rusty so had to look that up bol! 🙂
I get lonely too Misaki, no ones about in the winter 😦 Roll on summer. xx00xx
Mollie and Alfie
Everyone seems to be fair-weathered dog walkers!
I’m praying for snow this weekend!
Yea training classes with pals. Great time to play and ignore the peeps. Sorry the park has been empty. Maybe it will be busy at the weekend and there may be snow. Yeaaa. Have a terrific Thursday.
Best wishes Molly
I was a bit distracted last night, wasn’t quite in the right frame of mind for the paying attention part – too busy having fun bol
I’m hoping for snow too!!!
Oh what happy pictures to see. Be good in your class 🙂 xxx
I try…but sometimes I get distracted BOL
I love school! It is so much fun for us, and helps our parents learn new things. Your friends were happy to see you, M.
Love and licks,
That’s exactly the right way round Cuppycake:-)
So glad you had fun at class Misaki! It must be tough when you love socializing NOT to see your buddies on walks or in the park……..you look quite happy!!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
Sammy, in an ideal world I’d be friends with EVERYONE:-) I love people and doggies…they don’t always like me though BOL
Sounds like a fun time, but do you learn too or just play 😉
Once class starts it’s ‘school time’ but I was so excited to see my friends I wasn’t playing too much attention bol
Over the last 10 years I have found training humans is a life long job. I have also found they expect a ton of praise when they do something right too.
You have very nice friends.
hugs madi your BFFF
Madi, it sure is a longterm commitment! You’ve done amazingly well with your human – hope mine turn out as well!
Misaki …………goes to School 🙂
How cute is this –
how adorable 🙂
I can just imagine the fun with your friends xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
when You meet up To LEARN —————— 🙂
give your parents a hug for me xoxoxoxoxo
Hey Cat, hehehehe I don’t think I learnt that much on wednesday but I had a great time all the same:-)
Hugs to you xx
Hugggggggs Back xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Oh, Misaki, if we’d realized you were lonely, we would have found a way onto an airplane going across the pond and joined you for a cool European Adventure! We’re happy you’re back in class now and making new friends and seeing old ones. Love and kisses from Mattie the foxhound, Simone the collie, and Eddie & Lucy the JRs. Oh and their peep.
That would be soooo much fun! I’d love for you to come over and have zoomies together:-)
Oh so cute, little class pals! You’re probably the life of the class!
Katie and Coccolino the mini pig
BOl wherever I stand is called the naughty corner!!
I just love going to class:-)
Class is fun! I probably need to sign Momma up for a little refresher course.
you should! It’ll be fun:-)
Hey Misaki, Jet here.
So glad you have pals to hang with, some of our pack is away, so our night constitutionals have been a bit lonely. We walk super early in the morning, so, we know what you mean on that score.
Hope your morning walk is well-lit. The cycle paths are boring (except for the occassional cyclist I guess) but at least the streetlights are on so we can see where we’re going bol
That looks like fun. And yes…winter sucks. We hate that it’s dark so early.
definitely! Plus hadn’t expected so many of my friends to hibernate for the winter!
What a clever idea to buy this headtorch for your mom! aaahhh Ezio is his name….are we related? could it be? cool!!! ;o)
He’s loads of fun (though like to give me love bites on the cheek!) I’m sure you must be related. He’s only 10 months old so maybe he’s your baby brother:-)
…or my son? yiiiikes ;o)
OMD Easy!!! You’re a daddy!!!
if his mom is a pillow…than probably… could you ask him?
love that that dog is named “Ezio” almost like “Easy!!”
I know! His mummy pronounces it ‘Etsio’ but written down it’s so similar it’s incredible. I’m convinced he’s Easy’s long-lost brother:-)
Sounds like a wonderful time xoxo
Gotta love doggy class:-)
I’m so glad you get to go to class again and have lots of fun with your friends! 🙂
Thanks, it sure is good to be back in a routine again:-)
So Misaki, is yous wrestling with your cats like our hiary slobbery sister Cinnamon does with us?
I only get to wrestle with doggie friends. My nanny’s cat Daisy runs or hides when I visit so I can’t wrestle with her – could be fun though!
I expect you to be teaching this class soon.
That would be pawesome! We’d have playtime all the time:-)
Cool. I get to take my Mom back to class next week. She also need a refresher course. We’re going to take ‘Novice Rally’. I can’t wait.
Oooooh sounds like fun!
That looks like you had lots of fun Misaki ,that is great!xx Speedy
Never as many friends in the winter, so I’m glad you still get the chance to play! Looks like you’re having a blast.
Thanks guys, I always have a great time at class:-)
Yeah, what’s up with the other dogs not talking walks right now? I mean, it’s BEAUTIFUL out. So nice and cold.
Isn’t it weird? We still need to give our humans their walks otherwise they’d get fat and lazy
And yes the weather is perfect:-)
You go to school? That’s kind of neat. I was home schooled, myself. purrs
You must be super smart!
Ezio and sophie look like so much fun! Kirby is having the same problem with lack of buddies on our walks, this seems like a great idea1
It is a really good way to keep up with the socialization skills. Plus we always get there early so bit of time to play before class starts:-)
Wow, did you pups gets ANY trainin’ done?? Looks like it was all bitey face time! YEA! That’s my kind of class!! BOL
Hehehehe, if i had my way we’d be playing ALL the time. Sadly we do have to do some work too
We are so happy for you sweet Misaki. It looks like you had a lot of fun at class. Hope you get to get back to your walkies soon and it won’t be so dark. Hugs and nose kisses
Thank you, I hope so too Chancy!
Oh Misaki – I have to look into that school thing…my human needs some brush-up too. SHE needs to learn how to let loose and have more fun…like you did with your friends. I’m making sure that SHE reads your post today and gets the hint!
I hope SHE does Dante! And hope SHE’s feeling better xx
Thanks Misaki – SHE’S taking me to the Spa today so I won’t be able to keep an eye on HER for a while!
It looks like you know how to enjoy yourself at training, it’s all about the fun!
It sure is Clowie:-)
It’s easy to let the training drop isn’t it? The Producer realised that Raffles wasn’t as sharp with some of the commands any more so she has had to begin reinforcing again. The great thing about them doing that is that I can join in and get treats too 🙂
Zena, sounds like a good plan to me!!
Glad your back in class Misaki it’s really important to get to see all your friends. Lexie and Mica always use to love going to class when they were young:-)
I bet they did:-) Class is the best!
Eeoww Misaki…doggie classez!!?? Dey sound bery interestin….
You wuud not see a kitty class; we iz all too uppity fer dat!!! Bein a dog iz bery noble!!!!
I love seeing happy pictures! 🙂
That looks like so much fun, Misaki! I am glad you get to go back to class again 😀
Your post made me remember my days in grade school when I looked forward to Winter break…then by day 3 of Winter break I was bored to tears and wished I was back at school with my friends! 🙂
