Lots of Training!

Millie and I have done lots of training today! 

This morning, we went outside and ran through our latest Freestyle routine. Millie did it very well! We also did some other tricks and Millie learnt a new trick. I turn in a circle backwards on the spot and she walks around next to me backwards. It was a successful morning!

The 'big finish' of our freestyle routine. The photo was taken inside afterwards so neither of us are doing it quite so well

Not before a bit of hot cross bun with Joe

Or a lie down on her nanny's bed

We went dog training. Our normal trainer wasn't there so a lady from the competition class took our class. We had to do a little course where the dogs had to go over a jump, sit in a hoop and then heel in and out of some cones. Millie and Ruby did it the best and when we'd all had a go we had a little race to see who could do it the fastest. Millie won, doing it in 14 seconds!

We also had to sent the dogs to a marker, which was something new and Millie picked it up very quickly. 

After this we did a recall, which Millie did well. 

She has been a very good girl today, she's still not tired though!

Flower Pot Shredder but still a Skateboarding, Scootering, Barrel Rolling Dog!

Yesterday Millie found two more plastic flowerpots. She shredded them to pieces and thought it was great fun!

Despite this, she went on her scooter and skateboard yesterday and did very well. She also went on the skateboard and barrel today and did well! 

I managed to get a video of her on the skateboard yesterday, here she is!

Photos and a Video

Here are some photos that I have taken of Millie recently that haven't fit in to any other posts!

Also, a video I made today of some of my favourite photos of Millie.

Playing and Dog Training

Millie was playing in the garden and catching treats, I managed to get some action shots of her!

She was also very good at dog training. All the dogs were hyper but Millie was still really good. She did the out of sight stays without moving although the other dogs were moving around. Her stops were also much better. We took our world record certificate and medal to show everyone too. They were all impressed!

Millie Loves Food!

Millie has been really spoiled food-wise today! She saw one of her friends who gave her a (human) biscuit. For tea she had vegetables and posh meat! She then shared an ice cream with Joe, though she had most of it. She spent the whole time barking at the ice cream van! Not satisfied with this, she then helped herself to another (human) biscuit off the table! 

It's a good job she's done a lot of running around and playing!

Some more Scootering, Skateboarding and Barrel Balancing! And a Medal!

Yesterday Millie and I were messing around with the scooter, skateboard and barrel again! Millie was off her lead the whole time and we were just going between all the different things, she loved it! It is good she is able to ride the scooter there now, she has clearly got better and doesn't find it too bumpy anymore! At one point, I was on her scooter (maybe it was falling off her scooter...) and she was on her skateboard following me! It was good fun!

Today, Millie's World Record medal came. Here she is showing it off!

Lots of compliments for Millie!

Since Tuesday Millie has been getting lots of well dones and other nice things said about her. She was also on her scooter earlier when a man came up to us and said we should enter Britains Got Talent and that he couldn't believe it when he saw a dog riding a scooter!

Guinness World Record holder!

Today Millie became a Guiness World Record holder! We were filming for the BBC all day. She set the record for Fastest 10m Travelled on a Barrel by a Dog! She had to do it in less than 30 seconds and she did it in 8 seconds! She will be on the programme Officially Amazing breaking the record and doing some of her other tricks!

To start with she had to do an interview on the bench next to the presenter. There was cheese down the fake microphone she was using so she tried to eat it!

I then had to do an interview with the presenter with Millie there. It was good, though a few things happened that would make good out takes!

We then had lunch, did the record attempt and then some more tricks!

What an amazing girl she is!

Grass Barrel Balancing and Trifle Pot Licking!

Millie went on her barrel on the grass again today. She did really well and wasn't distracted by people watching or other dogs. She was really fast and did the length of the cricket field loads of times! What a clever girl!

She also licked out a trifle pot, which she really enjoyed! We nearly had a repeat episode of the flower pot but I got it off of her before that (with use of a gravy bone)!

Playing, Sleeping and Barrel Balancing!

Today Millie has been playing with Cooney the raccoon again! She also had a cuddle with Pink Dog!

On our walk this morning, she wanted to sniff something and jumped up at the fence! It was probably a squirrel!

She also did a bit on the barrel on the grass. She got very distracted but did so alright in the end!

Barrel on the Grass!

Millie and I went to the cricket field yesterday and did some barrel training on the grass. Despite being a bit distracted to start with, she soon got the hang of it and managed to do 11 metres in 10 seconds!

Barrel Training Again!

Today Millie and I gave done some more training on the barrel. I think today was one of her quickest
times yet! She has also learnt to wait when I tell her to but still stay on the barrel whilst it's stationary, her balance is brilliant! It's because of the 'wait' that I was able to get this photo of her!

She was off the lead the whole time and was really eager and well behaved! What a good girl!

After all this hard work she had a sleep on the sofa with Joe!

5 Today!

Millie's 5th Birthday! She had a good day with lots of special treats!

First she had a play at the tennis field

When we got home I have her the card and present from me

She also got a bag of chews and a toy raccoon!

Millie had a party with Joe, which, despite not going as planned, Millie still enjoyed and got 4 rosettes! A bonus was all the sausages she also got!

(The raccoon is next to her in the photo below!)

Joe also did well and got 4 rosettes!

It was then time for some Birthday cake. I made it to look like an agility course!

Finally, we went dog training. Millie got lots of attention and used her Birthday as an excuse not to be on her best behaviour! She wasn't bad though! We took little fairy cakes there for all Millie's friends which they liked too!

She's now exhausted and probably wants everything to happen again tomorrow!

Shoe Shops and Flower Pots!

Millie decided she was going to make the most out of her last day as a 4 year old!

She took 4 shoes if different pairs out onto the garden! She also pulled the inside out of one of them!

After I got the shoes off of her she found a flower pot! She thought that killing it was great fun!
