Barkyard Horror 'n Iron Man

It was half past 9, as usual, I was patrolling through the backyard for a final inspection before I head indoor to enjoy some TV. Just as I ended my duty, I notice something out from ordinary. I can feel this strange sensation creeping around my entire body. I went lunge forward to investigate and I jump frantically when I confirmed it was a SNAKE! I alerted the household and members of the family came forward. It was yet again, code red signal and Ms Owner tried her best to call me back. Recall was a total failure when I was in such a high drive mode. Due to the absence of a handy torchlight, Mr. Old Daddy was unable to locate the snake. I was being manhandled by Ms Owner and locked indoor. End of suspence.

The month of May and June will be rather busy and packed for us. Ms Owner coming home after dusk, cleaning up Dave and my mess. After her dinner, its our feeding time. We make use of the limited time to practise on my 'stay'. Ofcoz my 'stay' for dinner is near perfection and couldn't be better. Next, she will indulge herself in the mountain of books and papers, and non-stop cursing something that I don't understand. She mentioned something about group assignments that she dreaded most, everyone is always waiting for another. We hate waiting, that's final.

Thank God is Friday. Friday is the most relax day of the week. Ms Owner finish class early, she can put behind all the fuss in school and starts to enjoy her weekend. Last Friday, Mr. Naked Brother and Ms Owner went to watch 2 movies at Mid Valley. First, they watched the forgettable Fool's Gold, by the sizzling hot and sexy hunk, Matthew McConaughey. Okay, she didn't regret much because she gotta see Matt being topless, but Mr. Naked Brother nearly dozed off beside her yawning. Moving on to the next blockbuster of the month, Iron Man. 4 paws up! It was exceptionally brilliant movie with action-packed flick and humourous Downey Jr. We rated it the best comic-adaptation movie so far, putting behind Batman, Superman, Spiderman, X-men, Fanstastic 4, Daredevil and Hulk. We will definately watch it again this Friday!

Back to business regarding my agility. Last Sunday training ended up pretty sucked. I can't find my weave pole entry and refusal at table. I act like a little lost puppy wondering what I'm doing in the middle of an agility course. Flyball practise was not much better either, I was back to dropping balls. It can be conclude that I can easily get rusty without some backyard practise. Below are the pictures we obtain from PAAPP website on my previous trial at Penang.

Amber-Mae said...

A snake???!!! Good thing you didn't try to go after it coz one bite on the face & it could be fatal...You definitely need to work on with your recall. Hehe! On Sunday we went to MKA for OB & Agility lesson. Mommy found our 1st agility class quite boring as they've started from basic again. Faith & I did well though but I've missed a few entries during my weaving. Wish they will make a full course soon!

Love licks,

My mom loved your comment about the movie "Ironman" - she really likes Robert Downey Jr. - he is so very talented. Thanks to your comment she is going to try and persuade dad2b to leave me and go to the movies with her this weekend!

Murphey said...

Yup, last night I trapped an opossum, and I refused to recall too, it's hard to listen to the owner when we see something like a snake.


Deetz said...

That is a scary looking snake - good thing you frightened it off.

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Pacco,
Be very careful of those snakes. We had a baby Brown Snake slither by us yesterday by our pond. It was afraid of me Butchy, hehehehe. Iron man sounds like a good movie, Mama would like it. Oh yeah, we put Koi Pacco into the big pond yesterday & posted a new picture of her today. She likes the big pond, she has much more room to swim than being in the pond in our sunroom, hehehe. Have a great week!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
