I feel pretty guilty admitting this, but I pretty much skipped training yesterday and I haven't practiced articles with Jacks since Sunday. >.<
What was I doing instead? Watching a horrifically bad monster movie -
I have no idea what the name of the movie was, but a basic synopsis is scientists brought a miniature dinosaur with a gorilla head back home from an expedition on Venus. As the dinosaur was exposed to our atmosphere/air, it started GROWING and GROWING AND GROWING. It changed size a few times, but it was about the same size more or less as a bull elephant. And it killed the elephant by biting its neck and squashing it down on top of cars (cars smushing like pancakes). And we were told the monster couldn't be killed because it didn't have lungs or a heart, it just had a bunch of tubes throughout its body. Which considering it was probably a claymation monster, was probably true. o_O Er, but for a monster who didn't have lungs, it certainly roared a lot.
Oh they killed it anyway. It climbed on top of the collisseum and was making like King Kong. Then it did a "I've been SHOT!" routine when shot in the stomach and then it fell off the top of the collisseum and died. The end.
I'm planning to do articles with Jacks and video a training session with Bertie.
One training thing I did yesterday was a single wait/front that I did with Berts. I'm holding off the "sit" command to see if he will sit on his own. At least when fronting short distances (2 feet), he is sitting automatically. And very straight. <= Longer distances, I definitely have to guide AND remind him to sit.
