Khamp Barks A Lot... #3... and Happy HOWL O WEEN Eve.

We hope that this post doesn't SCARE anybuddy.    It is HOWL O Ween Eve...  butt we will try to keep thingys ...  CALM.

OKAY...  so Turbo comes WAY TOO OFTEN when his peeps need to go to Pitch Burger Hospital.
   AND... that leaves US to teach him impawtant Stuffs and to do Fun Thingys...  We have to sort of have like 87 Lesson Plans... it is exhausting... butt we know we are doing the right thingy fur our neighbors.
    SO...  this was way back in the HOT SUMMER....   July 27th actually...   This is Turbo... we showed him how he could sit on our front porch and look across the street to his Left... and SEE HIS HOUSE...   so he could Watch fur his peeps to come home... and to keep him from being worried that he would be HERE... FOREVER.

 THEN we started teaching him CAMP Games and Activities...   WE love this one...  TUNNELing.
     Furst Lesson was to show Turbo that it is Fun and Easy to do...
 We had to demonstrate (that's a teaching method) how it all worked..
 And while we Demonstrated... and gave advice and instruction... Turbo was to OBSERVE... that is a learning tool.
 Observing is also an EVALUATION tool fur seeing how our  POOPil is pawgressing.   Ernie did the Evaluations...  he was QUITE HARSH....  Butt Turbo took it like a Champ.
 Ernie often discussed the lesson with Turbo.   DISCUSSIONS are both Teaching and LEARNING tools..  
         AND there was a TON of encouragement...   ... THAT is very impawtant fur Poopils.  Learning is HARD and one NEVER wants a POOPil to become overwhelmed or discouraged.
After about 87 sessions...   and a few....  mistakes....


WE had Complete Success...      
Turbo learned to go IN one tunnel... turn and come Back through the OTHER and  I was right there ready to give him a snack  an  A+   

Turbo had Never Ever even Seen a Tunnel until he came to Khamp Barks A Lot... and LOOK AT HIM NOW...      he had a BLAST....    sometimes we had Mom roll his Ball Toy through a tunnel.. and once he MASTERED the Technique...   he had a BLAST playing that game...    he would even take his ball toy to the opening and set it down and BEG mom to roll it in fur him.
      He sent his peeps about 87 TEXTS... Showing and Telling them how much he Loved Khamp and saying that we were the bestest Khamp Count Sellers ever to be.      
     Now that is not the ONLY new thingy he had to learn...   wait until you see what we did TO  with him NEXT.

Gail and I are super impressed that Turbo mastered what looks like a tunnel designed more for dachshunds than for the larger dog. His success is no doubt a great credit to your awesome teaching skills. Well done Frankie and Ernie!
Toodle pip!

You boys sure were good counselors to Turbo. We thought he might be too big to fit through the tunnels but we were wrong.

What a wonderfully neighborly thing to take on Turbo's care when his peeps need medical care. In our hood we have Puddles' neighbors. Our nice neighbor was reported for her dogs barking if the bully keeps on she will be fined and after three times the dogs pounded. When we had our new driveway poured we found out after it was done that the bully reported us for junk tucks and bobcats and blocking school buses. Only had one dump truck and one bobcat on our own property. The city told us later they recognized it as an unsubstantiated claim as it was summer with school not in session. We had all our permits and everything was above board. We need to be your neighbor.
From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!
Happy Halloween
