"My personal best. Of course since she just started very jump but 2 have been personal bests.
I went in this time to celebrate."

Natalie Culver: And I ended a full day with some dog training in the kitchen, or at least treat passer outing? Nicholas wanted to be a “tiger dog” and join in on the “step up” training. Hannah wanted to be in videos of training them, then they had to endure Halloween costumes she made for them (good dogs) and finally for there patience with the costumes they were rewarded with treater passer-outting by Nicholas.

Before I got video Nicholas was handing one to each dog in turn and in THE cutest 3yr old little voice “Now one for Ivy. Now one for Jasper. Now one for Ivy. Now one for Jasper... etc”. They had a bunch more than one treat each? I was trying to get him to say it again on video but he wouldn’t.

Then I think he may be mixing up Easter Egg hunting with Halloween treating as ended with a little game of hid-the-treat from the pumpkin.

Whew... now on to laundry, lol
