Nonetheless, overdose of heeling and stay for Novice can really make me a dull girl. Why not stimulate your mind with some of the Intermediate and Open exercise. We started off with retrieve, not retrieve and spit, but retrieve and hold to show your respect. But why dumbell? I can understand we heel on left, because hunter on field carry their gun on right, and when we walk oppose to traffic, we are suppose to be on the left. 'Out of sight stay' are meant for dogs who used to stay outside the store, while their owner went in shopping for grocery. Anyway people are fear of dognapping currently. But dumbell? I can't reason it. A plush duck might be more reasonable. Okay, I'm saying this because I'm just a poor bugger who still can't retrieve a dumbell.
While being stuck with the retrieving part, we proceed on how to complete the retrieving exercise. Mastering the 'hold'. This is what we call 'backchaining' method. I have a major item spitting syndrome. Whatever I fetch, I will spit on her feet and trained her to pick it up. This behaviour really doesn't contribute much to our dumbell work. It had took me months, with lotsa troubleshooting, especially holding it until its being removed, not to drop it when you see your owner's hand came close to it. Whenever I did that, she redraw her hand, let it drop and indicate to me, I'm screwed. After 2 freaking months, finally a breakthrough. Is not a surprise though, since I need 2 years to learn how to stay for 10 second and another year to stay for 1 minute.
She decided not to train on tennis balls because when we played flyball, I don't think she had this dicipline of demanding me to 'hold' it.
Last Friday, Ms Owner went for a movie marathon. 3 movies in a day, The Happening, Get Smart and Wanted. Who the jerk who told her that 'The Happening' isn't scary?! It freaked the hell out of her and she ended up only watching 60% of the film, while the remaining she blocked the whole screen with her bag. But 'sci-fi' had been one of her favourite genre. Luckily, there's nothing gore. Get Smart is a forgettable movie, nothing impressive and the worst is, she can't bring herself to laugh. Maybe she was too concentrate test messaging with Ms Sister, discussing how many Euro Cup T-shirt they should purchase at Jusco. They were being sold at 70% discount!
'Wanted' was really crazy action movie with all the 'curve bullet' moves that doesn't comply with the law of physics. Angelina Jolie doesn't have an impact on the movie, we wonder why her big gorgeous face was plastered on the poster, suggesting to us that she was the protagonist. Afterall, we got to enjoy some superbly impressive action moves, they even wreck the new version of Viper, which made us weep and there's a twist in the end.
