Cidney PetSmart Beginner Education Graduation
Yes, this should have been a Tuesdays with Dorie posting but I just didn't get around this holiday weekend to making this week's selection. Check out the TWD crew that did make Caramel Pots de Creme!

How was your holiday weekend? I worked one day, put up some mini blinds, went to the Farmer's Market, saw Kung Fu Panda 2 with my UCLA roommate and her family (such cute girls Lucia & Julia!), and Cidney graduated!! Whoo hoo!

Cidney the Dog (a girl, by the way) completed the PetSmart Beginning Education class. Six weeks of sit, loose leash walking, down, drop, leave it, shake and come. She's doing well, but needs more practice and the intermediate class. We had a good time and our trainer Blythe was awesome. As an adult, I've only had cats so this whole idea of actually training an animal is kinda cool. :)

Cidney with Blythe the Trainer - PetSmart Beginner Education Graduation
Cidney's trainer, Blythe. Cidney always listens when Blythe is talking. Well, almost always. Unless another dog comes by. Or a kid. Or....well, it was Beginner class! (The six week class was $109 - totally worth it!)

The profile of 1 1/2 year old Cidney. She's from the shelter so we aren't sure what mix she is... but there sure is a lot of cute in there, huh?! :) (Yes, I'm a proud Auntie Mary!!!)

Also, Cidney didn't mind the hat on her head. I never thought I would become someone who dressed up pets...but just wait for Halloween and Christmas.

Joanne Chang's Flour book has homemade dog biscuits. I think I'll have to try to make some for my graduate! Congrats to the class of 2011! :)

Congrats on the graduation! Cidney is ADORABLE. Someday I will get a dog. For now, I'm cat sitting an ex-boyfriend's cat, appropriately named The Dude. Hahaha!

Congrats to the grad! Bravo on taking her to be trained too. I am a cat person, but I definitely blame the owners of untrained dogs, not the dog itself. We have a golden and she's been an awesome pet for 10 years. Have fun with Cidney!

I want to be an unofficial dog godmother...so cute.

It's totally clear from the pictures just how sweet and well-trained Cidney is!! I'm going to guess that she has some Australian Shepherd in her; how else could she be so cute (my Australian Shepherd's made me type that; see who's trained in my house?)
