Scout’s first day at Puppy Preschool went well. She learned the “name game” (you call her name, and if she looks, you click & then treat), “watch”, and “sit.” Towards the end, she got to go on the A-frame (sort of a confidence building exercise). She went up and down just fine. No fear.
There’s this one guy there though who was pretty annoying. Here’s a sample conversation:
Dumb Dude: “What’s your puppy’s name?”
Dumb Dude: “How old is he?”
Us: “oh, she’s actually a girl, and she’s 11 weeks tomorrow.”
Dumb Dude: “Where’s his tail?”
Us: “She doesn’t have one.”
Dumb Dude: “oh, poor Scott. Wait — is his name Scott or Scoudge?”
“Scoudge”? REALLY? Ugh.
Keep in mind that this guy heard us many times during class say “Scout” and “good GIRL, Scout!” Yet, at the end, he still called her “Scott.” Even the trainer was like, “uh, you mean Scout? Her name is Scout.”
Scout should shoot him one of her many looks of disapproval.
