I can't remember who it was, but one of my friends blogged about their cool toy from Canine Genius, and I immediately knew I needed one too! So my mom ordered one for me. It's the blue thing in the picture that looks like a bowling pin. When you roll it around, TREATS come out! It's amazing.
My mom had to go to the post office to pick it up for me. Unfortunately, there is a big sign that says dogs aren't allowed in the post office. The mailman noticed that it was addressed to "Lenny" and started to give my mom a hard time about it! She explained that I was her dog and that I am in fact a Canine Genius. He let my mom sign on my behalf. He wanted to know what kind of dog I was, and then he wanted to tell my mom all about HIS dog - a Pomeranian. He was quite proud because the dog's photo had been selected for a dog picture calendar (not the Dogs With Blogs calendar).
While my mom was out doing errands, she decided to go to Barnes & Noble. Keeley's mom Erin had posted about this book, and when my mom saw the picture, she had to go find it. It has a fox terrier right on the cover! She was thrilled because our Barnes & Noble also had it, in the bargain aisle.
When my mom brought it up to the register to pay for it, she got all chatty and gushed about how excited she was to get the book, because it looked just like ME on the cover. The cashier asked if I was a fox terrier. It turns out that she has an Airedale! She informed my mom that Airedales look similar to fox terriers...(um, thanks! We knew that.)
It's nice that people are so proud of their dogs, I think.
