It's not often that I get sick (thanks to this hardy Canadian constitution of mine), but when I do, it's usually a doozy. So much for hoping to get better by the end of the weekend.
Yesterday was Nala's first day in Real Life 101, an obedience class held out in public areas with plenty of distractions to deal with. Nala did pretty well doing what we asked her to do, but getting her to stay focused on us was a bit tough.
After class,we had a little bit of time left on the meter, so we went for a stroll downtown. Nala did pretty well walking around with all the people and cars.
If you happen to be strolling down King St in Charleston with your dog, stop in at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. They're very dog friendly and welcome pooches in the store. They even have collars and leashes in the back. Just make sure your pet doesn't pee all over the place, or you might end up buying a few more things than you planned. Nala was very good in the store, and got lots of attention from one of the staff who also has a black lab.
