Lesson 129: Max's Advance Obedience Graduation. Good Dog!

Last night Max graduated from advanced obedience wahoo :) That means he can now advance to the more challenging and fun courses like agility or competition obedience. For the last class all the dogs got to run an agility course several times. It was a lot of fun and I think Max really enjoyed himself once he figured out what the heck he was supposed to do.

Tyler and Max waiting outside for class to start.

 Max waiting so patiently (in reality he was pretty anxious to get going)

Me and Max :)

This little ramp is the precursor to the A-frame 

Max on the wobble board. This gets the dogs ready for the teeter totter.

As you can see Max was NOT a fan of the wobble board.

All the dogs were pretty pooped after agility 

Max's certificate for graduation :)

He was more concerned with the biscuit that he got with his certificate. 

My class :)

Back at home Max was ready for bed.  

Ruby did not get to come with us so she was pretty happy to have us home.  

Tyler was ready for bed too :)

Lesson 128: Tyler has a new business with ACN

Tyler has opened up shop with ACN. Just a side job and I am showing my support by dressing up my dogs in silly costumes. One time I asked Tyler what he thought was my biggest personal strength. His reply was "pugs" and I was like "pugs are my biggest personal strength?" To this is said "Yes, pugs give you strength and you make good cookies!"

I love Tyler and I love the way he thinks hahaha. Since he told me this I have really thought about how yeah, pugs do give me strength, perhaps it is a security blanket thing or that when you have a pug you have an automatic talking point when meeting people. Anyway, I used my personal strength to help support Tyler. :)

So check out Tyler's website with ACN. It is all about getting discounts on things like cell phone bills, TV, Internet, land line and more! I went from an old simple flip phone to a smart phone and now I pay less per month with unlimited texting and calls to any other phone company which is crazy but ok. And the company has been around for 20 years so it has staying power too. Here is the website and happy Friday!!!

Lesson 126: A pug party and a debut party!

On Friday Tyler and I went to Heather and Jacob's house to celebrate the 1 year birthday of Ruby and her brother Henry. We had a blast and some amazing food :) Max came along too. It was funny to see him with a room full of pugs. I think they new he was the odd dog out, but he was more concerned with getting table scraps.

Here is Ruby on July 4th with her birthday hat. This is a magical hat that immobilized her into this position.

Henry and Ruby.

Max also got dressed up for the 4th. Actually in the end we had Ruby wear the collar since it was getting a little small for Max... if you recall he wore this last year.... 

He was so tiny!!!! Awww puppy Max

 I love this picture. It captures the similar personalities of Ruby and Henry. Both are about to perform a face punch if they have to be held one moment longer.

I am so excited because tomorrow is my big debut party as a Mary Kay beauty consultant. I have held two parties already but this is the debut... kind of confusing.... Anyway I have loved being a consultant and can't wait for what the future holds. Plus I have Tyler who is my awesome kick in the pants motivator that gets me to constantly travel out of my comfort zone.
