So, maybe it’s about that time I finally tell you about Luna and Shout Sister Choir. You know since our first small show was like forever ago now on October 23rd. Damn time just keeps getting away from me and stuff just keeps getting in the way of me posting about this show.
First before I get to the show…I know I know, putting it off yet again ha! Luna has been to a couple of practices with me and has done an awesome job. The first practice was with the Thursday group which is the group I actually practice with and the second one was the Tuesday group.
Hmm, I’m not too sure what she thinks of that group. every time we were done with a song she kept trying to leave! *snickers* Maybe that’s a bad sign?
So ok, here it is, our first choir show.
Our first show as I said was pretty small, just at one of the local nursing homes. I had Luna’s harness with me, but not on her because during shows it’s loads going on and of course I knew she’d get lots of attention. Plus if there’s run we also dance. The dog and I, not the choir, ha! Everyone knows Shout Sister has a dog in the group so I’m never bothered about not having the dog in harness, but keep it with me just in case there’s ever a problem.
So we get to the place where we will be sining and I get ready to attach Luna to my belt loop so I can have hands free. Usually this is not a problem and goes just fine, but um . . . *yipes*
Luna all of a sudden gets all excited just when I’m about to attach her to my pants and takes off pulling the leash from my hand.
Quick, someone grab her! I call out.
Choir members attempt just that, but that darn little rocket is quick and tiny and slips between legs. No one has a clue yet what the heck Luna has her eyes set on!
Someone finally is able to grab the leash…*groans* goes Luna as she’s brought back to me.
I hurry up this time and attach her to my pants while the little bugger is still trying to get away!
You know what had her attention? *smiles* I’ll tell you at the end.
So I get her all settled and she behaves like the good girl she is and like she hasn’t done anything wrong.
Luna, me get away,never! I would never do such a thing. I’m a good girl.
Ready for part two? Oh yes, Luna tries it again, but this time she’s attached to me!
We finish the show and of course Luna gets loads of attention cause she’s so awesome and good. However we didn’t get to dance because the area was just too small for that. So they didn’t get to see how good she is there.
We were getting ready to go when once again Luna makes a run for it!!
*eep* as I go flying along with her…remember she’s attached to my pants!
I grumble and pull her back once a choir member keeps me from flying over a table and make her sit.
Luna says *yeah right* and tries again to go after what has her attention. I’m going to have it I am I am I am, she thinks.
This time I’m prepared and don’t go flying across the room and I pull her back for the second time.
*grumble, snort and probably some doggy curses* as for the third time she makes a break for it! Mine mine mine.
Fine, I give up! I let her drag me to the object that so had her attention.
You ready to hear what it was?
A statue of a dog about the same size as her! Yes, a bloody darn dog statue.
Here’s the best part. After I let her drag me to it…she won that war, *hmph* She turned around, sat down and looked up at me like ok, are we done now?
lol, that cracked everyone up and I just had to roll my eyes. I put her harness on and we got the heck out of there. Of course after more pats and love and scratches for the silly mutt!
So, now that the first show is out of the way, it leaves me to wondering, what will Luna do for the next show where bells will be involved?
If you’re in Ottawa Ontario Canada, come check us out. Make sure to come early, show starts at noon!
