Logan had a walk today and then we went to our field training lesson. After, it was spa day time and we played fetch and then with his Chewbacca toy. He loves that thing — carries it around like a baby all the time.
I heard from our new obedience instructor — her name is Jane Johnson — and we now have our first lesson scheduled for this coming Tuesday. She said she enjoyed watching Logan and me in the ring and she could tell we have a relationship. She said he’s very tuned in to me and I’ve done a fine job with him so far. Awww! She said he’s a lovely Golden with so much potential. After that, she went on about putting an OTCH on him, but she hasn’t seen my handling skills yet. Anyhoo, I think she will be a great private lesson instructor and we are looking forward to it.

Oh, and at field Cara had me put Logan behind my car while she threw three bumpers out into the water and then I brought him along to watch as she threw the fourth dumbbell. He then went to pick up each one and then did two more water retrieves after that. Next we worked on casting - left back, right back, left over, and right over. Lastly, we walked forever and let Logan watch a dumbbell being tossed and then we walked a long, long way back. I could not remember where the dumbbell was (haha), but Logan ran a long way and went straight to it and brought it back — so that was good.

Hahaha that's funny about the Chewbacca toy and Logan 😅! Ramses got a free toy back in February - a donut one from the vet here in the US (I think he is in love with our vet because he looks out for her when we pass by the practice - which is close to my home). He loves bringing it out on walks in the evenings/nights. He never used to be interested in doing that before though.. Also love Logan's serious face during grooming! Ramses is always so solemn when he takes a bath and then promptly will start falling asleep 😩 - we are now two just to groom him. One person solely to keep him awake and that results in him being annoyed with us 😂
