Let the truth be told

Okay, Marvin really isn't a football fan. And I'm not just saying this because Green Bay lost (which was unfortunate).

Like our friends who left comments on the post suggested, it was the green headband that looked so very charming on the boy that inspired me to take photos and tell a story. That, and the fact that I might impress my sister and her family for posting about the Packers because they *are* true football fans!

The truth is Marvin did wear the headband around his neck throughout the duration of the game. However, he was curled up in a tight dog ball in his crate in the bedroom the entire three hours we had the game on TV in the living room.

So now you know. You can't necessarily believe what you read on the internet. :)

Hi - I just read your question: I never work so long that she would get bored. I play with her before we start a run to get her in the mood. I use multiple awards (treat tubes are a great invention to make the dog look at the obstacles and run faster than you). I think your beagle is doing good fot 13 weeks of class. A wise instructor once told me: the dog is where the reward is. If you always keep the reward close to you (hand or pocket), the dog will only run as fast as you run. To make him run faster you can throw a food tube or a toy ahead of the last few jumps and try to make him run faster than you run. Doing tricks also helps with concentration - you don't have to be a freak like some of us, but I think even 10 minutes before dinner when he's hungry will make a difference. It has so many advantages I can't even tell you, but one of the most important things is that it really helps you to communicate better and it's incredibly fun!

Hi guys,

I'm sorry your football team lost-ours lost as well, The Colts-so since my mom doesn't like new England I guess we'll cheer for the giants.
