No one has more optimism or glee about seeing the mailman in our neighborhood than ACE. More than 2 years ago now, the very dog centric mailman (now retired) ALWAYS carrier dog biscuits with him and generously distributed them to all the dogs in the hood! And if you where lucky enough be on your walk when he came into view he would gladly stop and dispense special delivery treats to all attentive and anguishly waiting canines. He was a very sweet man and also had serviced in the military. He took special care to make sure he performed his job very well, but also made the extra effort to make a lot of dogs very happy. One time Gina and I came upon the parked mail truck on our walk and startled the mailman as he was sorting some mail and Gina let out a big hello bark, “May I have my cookie, please!” He gladly stopped for a brief moment and gave her her cookie and she laid down in the grass to leisurely have her own little picnic. The transition to mail with no cookies, has been very hard for ACE. As I said earlier, our special mailman hasn’t been in the area to delivery cookies for 2 years, but this does not prevent ACE from being filled with HOPE and every time he sees a mail truck that this time could be the right time. But alas time after time, we try to get our mother as close as possible to the truck and she is constantly saying, “No, No that’s not the mailman with the cookies”, but ACE won’t give up his quest! Everyday he is hopeful again that this could be the day! This will be the day that he gets his cookie and even as the new mailman (still a nice man but no cookies) drives away ACE will linger just a little bit longer just encase the mailman changed his mind or suddenly realized that he forgot to stop for ACE and give him his special delivery cookie!
Just getting to know us!
Tails from Emmco Sport is all about our adventures and various topics concerning dog agility equipment, training, dogs we meet, and most importantly fun! Woof!
We would like to thank ahead of time our loving parents for translating our adventures onto our blog. Our parents also add important topics about the equipment so other dog parents have all the information they need to make the best choses for their families, friends, training facilities and clubs.
Here is some personal info on us:
1/4 Australian Cattle Dog, 1/4 Chow Chow, 1/4 Akita & 1/4 Miniature Poodle Makes for a very pretty girl. Mom says ACE (my twin brother) and I are A-Cutas (my sister Patch Marie is adopted she is only an Australian Cattle Dog). I am a Princess, AKC Canine Good Citizen, love Tracking, Rally, and Canine Free Style (that’s dancing with my mom, she calls it “dancing with the stars”. My favorite music is “The Cats Meow”. It’s Celtic music and quite lively. I get excited every time I hear it. What fun!
My twin sister and I have just turned 5. We had a party with presents and Frosty Paws. My mother tells me about once a day how she fell in love with me at first sight. She says, that the second see saw me in the arms of a volunteer for the Humane Society she asked my name and then she said this is my new son. I was quite adorable and only weighed 13 lbs. I did get a little bit bigger, I weigh 91 lbs. now. But it gets a little annoying when she tells this story over and over again. Well, we love her anyway. I like to take agility classes with my mother and I love the contact obstacles! The best part are the treats, of course. I love to meet people and dogs when I travel to agility events with my father. It’s very interesting.
I am the BIG sister. I am 5 & 1/2. I was adopted by my parents from ARRF. The first year and 1/2 of my life was very difficult and it was hard to find parents, but when I saw my dad and mom I knew they were the ones for me. They take very good care of us all and mom knows exactly what we each like to eat. I know that I am very bossy but I am the BIG sister and I want to make sure that my siblings remember that at all times or else! I like to go to agility classes with my dad and see my friends but I definitely don’t like everyone like my brother does.
Thank you for visiting our blog. We hope to hear from you!
