Day 3 at GDF- April 4th

It was a really good day today! :) We went into downtown Smithtown and did the Backwards P this morning. This was a lot of stores and obstacles on the sidewalk and crossing a street without a traffic light. We each did this route and Favor dis an amazing job of taking me around each and every obstacle.
We then went to a route called the Horseshoe, shaped as a horseshoe and typically has some obstacles that have to be dealt with- such as broke up sidewalks, a pine bush that hangs over the sidewalk completely, and often vehicles parked over the sidewalk as well. Favor and I went in both directions this afternoon around the horseshoe. She's getting better and better all the time and worked very nicely since Greg was in the van following instead of foot with us. :)
Favor also finally did both today for her bathroom break, even with Greg around too! Yay! Now if I can just get her to eat her food. :) We're getting there, one day at a time! :
I think we were both worn out after this morning though- she was snoring on the floor here beside me and I got a 20 minute nap in before they'd called us out to take the dogs out before dinner. :)
After diner, we had our lecture in the downstairs TV lounge with just the three of us that are working with Greg. We covered the basic stuff of handing the dog, brushes, where to get stuff we need and so forth.
After lecture, I headed up to the room and we called it a night.

Some shots of Favor in some downtime either between sessions or in the evening.

Favor with hind legs on the floor, front legs laying on the bed and her bone between the paws and in her mouth- looking at the camera with an innocent face. :)

Night all- I'm a TIRED Puppy!   Favor sprawled out on the flloor out cold asleep.
