Second Week of Training

Monday, May 25
Yes, it was Memorial Day, but that didn’t mean we weren’t still going to train.
Freesia and I did a new route this morning. We went to East San Rafael this time. The route was from a coffee shop to a grocery store. Actually, the two places were literally right next to each other, so my instructor made up a longer route to get us there. During the route, there was a large grate in the sidewalk that was very wobbly and loud. Freesia and I walked over it and it made a very loud boom sound. Freesia got scared and ran, pulling me forward. I felt really bad because I completely understand why it was scary, but I laughed at her uncontrollably. Her reaction was hilarious. My instructor and I took her back over the grate and praised her and gave her food to make it a more positive place, but when we did the route again that afternoon, we walked on the other side of the street to avoid it.
I took Freesia out to the play yard so we could run around and play together. I heard her bark for the first time. The funny part is that I had just finished reading her fun facts from her puppy raisers. One of the facts that they wrote was that they had only heard her bark a total of two times. In the play yard, I heard her bark for the first time, and then two more times after that. It is a loud and deep bark. I definitely did not expect something like that to come out of my little Freesia, that’s for sure.
