More doggy news

I never thought it would take so much effort to train a dog! We are taking Sasha to puppy classes where she is learning a lot and she has picked up some commands. (If these classes are a success I was thinking of taking my wife along!) However, we still have a long way to go (with the dog, not my wife). She chews everything and I have learned the hard way not to leave anything lying around.

One of the benefits of having a dog is that I am now getting regular exercise by taking Sasha for a walk. Also, I have never spoken to as many people in my street because they stop to admire the white fur ball. My daughter and I were walking home from the shops with the dog when a car screeched to a halt beside us and a lady jumped out. "Is this Sasha?" she asked. It turned out that she had 2 samoyeds and her friend, one of our neighbours, told her that we had one. I have been upstaged by a dog!

You could learn some good classroom techniques from that puppy trainer by all accounts :-)

I look forward to seeing the new, fit Pluto when I call over with carrot sticks

Oh my! I wasn't sure whether to laugh at the wife comment or be irritated...I laughed.

Btw, most of our call centers are full of foreigners, mostly people from India or something. I guess it never dawned on me that I got a normal, English speaking person. I should have requested his extension for any other calls I may have to make! What a loss! Thanks for reading my blog. :o)

Nice of you to drop by, Snot Head :)

One of my friends speaks absolute gibberish to foreign call centre operators so that he gets put through to a native English speaker!
