Yesterday and Today.
For Lola, despite the good news in regards to her legs, yesterday was a Bad Day. She had three barkfests at people - two were understandable (young child very nearly running into us and woman appearing 'suddenly' out from behind counter at vets after the vet had been flexing her legs), one not so much. The last episode happened when we were out on a walk; after Lola had had the zoomies trying to get one of her boyfriends to chase her, she barked at his owner, who she usually just watches without much fuss.
I intended today to take her out into town and work hard on Look At That games, but the weather was atrocious, so when it cleared up I headed quickly out to the park to play fetch. She ignored several screaming children in favour of her ball, which was nice; but then we were caught out in a sudden heavy rain/hailstone blast, which wasn't so nice. We were both soaked, and at one point, when she kept pulling when holding her ball on the way home, I shouted at her. She cringed the rest of the way home, and I gave her a huge cuddle to say sorry. My poor baby girl is very sensitive.
If it's nice tomorrow, we're going to go out and do some agility foundation training again. She seems to have forgiven my bad mood, but I still feel guilty. Jess can handle anything I dish out, whilst Lola sometimes comes creeping over even if I interrupt their play with a quick 'hey.'
