Yesterday the peeps and I went to the beach! Yup, the beach, in mid December! It was a beautiful, balmy, 75 degree day just perfect for a beach outing. The lighting was soft and lovely, but the camera shutter speed/ISO were too low so lots of the pictures came out blurry (Dachshund Mommy: that's what I get for using the automatic settings instead of my usual manual.). But we got a few good ones!
Mom and I also worked on my training; recall, sit, down, stay, sit/stay, down/stay, spin, and keeping close to Mom's side (basically heeling, but on the right instead of the left). I got to be off leash for the first time as a person passed us, and I completely ignored him and stayed focus on Mom. Dachshund Mommy: I was so incredibly happy and proud of my beautiful girl! She continues to get better and better with her training, and her focus and attention on me grows every day. Her recall was absolutely flawless, just perfect. She returns voluntarily often too, and comes flying back as soon as the words "Nola, come!" leave my lips. I adore this dog.
Smart, funny, gawjuss, photogenic....What's not to love?
Kisses and Tail Wags,
