This week is just a DISASTER!!!

Hey friends! Sorry that I haven't been visiting all your bloggies for these past few days. That's because my hoomie Melissa has been really busy with her singing for a singing competition that's coming up really soon. I'll tell you guys more about at later but right now, Melissa is not really happy with me because well...because...

Do I look amused?

I FAILED my Intermediate Exam miserably today!!!! What a total embarrassment...I'm not happy with my results too. I got a few smackings, jerkings & also a ear twisting by Melissa because I wasn't performing well t
his morning. My concentration was somewhere else & I lagged like 2 meters behind her while doing the off-leash heeling. At some halts, I didn't sit & during Distance Control, Melissa had to repeat twice for each command. And when I was supposed to retrieve my dumbbell over a jump, I got distracted by something else. *sigh* And in total, I got 78 points out of 200. Please don't laugh. I guess today was just not a very good day for me...

OH I'm sooo embarrassed...Don't look at me!

But I have some good news for you! CONGRATULATIONS to my sista Chloe for passing her Pre-Novice exam with soooper flying colors! She got 98 points out of 100 & got 1st placing. At least she did well & I'm very proud of her.

Anyhoo, Melissa's not going to continue Intermediate classes with me anymore because she knows that this is as far as I can go & she can see that I'm not really enjoying OB at all so thank you very much woman! You've got that soooo right! After this, I may be enrolling for Agility classes because I enjoy this sport much much more. I will need to be prepared for the Agility Trials next month.

OH yes, I almost forgot. Another disaster happened on Friday when we were playing in our new, big shiny pool. While we were splashin' away, Melissa saw two tiny punctured holes on the side of it. She touched it & the holes started becoming bigger. She said, she watched it splitting apart, bigger & bigger & bigger & then BOOM! The whole pool exploded!!! And all the water went gushing straight into our ho
me, into the living room & our hoomies panicked like hell but we were having SO much fun running in & out of the house & jumping on the couch. I was like, "Wheeeeeeee! This is so much fun!" But then we were kicked out & tied up. BOOHOO!

Our beautiful pool almost torn into half... *sob sob* No more pool!

DANG! It was like Tsunami hit our home. I'm not kidding! There was sooo much water that it hit the wires, went under the cabinets, the piano, etc. Water was practically everywhere! But the hoomies managed to sweep all the water out & dry up the whole place in an hour. Melissa also managed to give us a bath after that. Phew! Why couldn't they just skip the bath...hehehehe! What a silly catastrophe that was.

But here's another good news. About Melissa's singing. She's practicing a few songs & singing them everyday just to get her voice going for the singing competition which is coming up next month which is almost on the same day as the Agility Trials. The singing competition is called One In A Million. If she's the winner, she gets one million dollars. Isn't that just awesome!? But but but, if she gets in, there'll be hardly any bloggin' for me for up to 3 months if she gets to the end of the competition ofcourse. So please, don't forget us yeah...

So guys, please pray for her that she'll get through the auditions & also win the million dollars *cross paws* I know she can make it but she needs more support from you all! Hehehehe!

Have a great week everybody!

Don't worry about the exam Amber - everydog and human have bad days no one is pawfect!!

Maybe once you start agility you'll find obedience a little more interesting - I know I did - mainly cos HM figured out she needs to be more exciting to keep me interested!!

Congrats to Faith though - and good luck to your human in the singing competition!!

ROSSI said...

Oh Amber darling.. am sorry.. thousands millions apologize... sorry i didn't go to support u.. blame it on my mommy.. she is too lazy.. she has been lazed around at home like a dead fish!!...

But hey.. for me, it doesn't matter how u do well or not.. cause u already so great in doing everything.. from doing tricks n being obedient.. u are no. 1..

Just chill out.. and be happy.. cause i know i am eventho' am been kicked out from the obedience class.. hehehe..

PerfectTosca said...

Aw Amber don't be embarrassed. We all have bad days! Heck I have them all the time! No big deal girl! Besides, who knows better tricks than you do huh? Who does nose biscuit better than you??? Tell me! I'll wait.....

Listen girl, you just take a deep breath. Yer mom loves you and she understands. Well ok, there were a coupla yanks and probably she gave you the Stinky Eye like I get but you'll get another chance and when you do, Woot!

Now the pool exploding would've definitely made me bite my foot. The woman woulda gone wild.

Listen, here's whatchu do. YOu go up to yer Mom when she's singing and you lick her face and tell her how good she sings and the rest will be forgotten.

ChaCha & Yuki said...

Hey Amber! awww sorry you didn't pass, hope agility suits you more;) so many things happening..were you thinking about your pool during the exam? maybe that's why you were distracted=P

PS congrats Chloe! you go girl!


Ruby Bleu said...

Oh Amber...I'm sorry you didn't do better...but it doesn't matter to me! You are still a very talented girl and can do so much!!! Going going Chloe...give her a lick for me ok.

Good luck to your Mom too!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Natasha Fernz said...

Hey Amber...

I think you're super cool without passing the test... Frankly my mommy stopped me after I passed Pre Novice, cause she was happy with me being adequately obedient...:)

And as for your Mommy, good luck to her for the contest. We'll be keeping all 12 paws (mine, Lucky's and Husky Boy's) in this house crossed for her...


Luckie Girl said...

Hey Amber,
I guess it just wasn't your day. Don't feel bad okay? We all know how talented you are! Don't need any test to tell me that.
Good luck to your Mom. What song is she singing?

Boo said...

oh amber-mae, i'm so sorry to hear the news about you failing your exam. yeah, if you don't like it i think it is a wise decision for not continuing it.

wow, the pool exploded huh? i bet your human were cursing coz you all wet the sofa! LOL

btw, good luck to mommy on the singing competition.

wet wet licks


Sparky said...

Wow, what a weekend! I'm so sorry you failed your exam. But I am glad you are moving on to agility, because it is the best sport ever! Good luck!

That must have been very... uh... interesting, when the pool exploded. I would have liked to have seen it, hahaha. Although I guess it wasn't really funny at the time, eh? Well to you it might have been, but not to your parents I guess...

I hope your mommy gets through the auditions, and that would be really cool to get the million dollars! Maybe you could split it with me, say, fifty/fifty? Hehe


Lucas said...

Awww...Hi Amber-Mae. So sorry to hear about your exam and your pool. :( Congratulations to Chloe and good luck to your mommy on her singing competition. I hope she wins!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Amber.
Glad you mom decided to quit that class, if you are not happy there! I am sure you will do great at Agility! Congratulations to Chloe!
Sure it was fun for you when the pool exploded. I can't say the same of your family!!
I am sending good vibes and well wishes to you mom to do it great at the signing competition!
Have a nice day

Jackson said...

Hey Amber, I don't care that you didn't pass the exam, you're still the BEST dog I know at ANY tricks!

The water explosion sounds pawsome! I bet it was fun sliding around in it.

Can you get your Mum to post a video of her singing? Wish her good luck from me!

Hi Amber-Mae...

Butchy & Snickers said...

Awwwh, don't feel so bad Amber. You can't have a perfect day all of the time for obedience things. It's easy for us doggies to get distracted, especially if you just weren't in the right mood for the exam. Sounds like the agility stuff is just right for you since you like it so well. We're sure it's lots more fun too. Congrats to Chloe though!!!
Wow, we sure hope your Mama wins the million dollars!!!!! That would be way cool. We would never forget you if you didn't blog for 3 months. Friends don't leave friends!! You should be so proud of your Mama just for entering the competition. Do keep us posted on her practicing, hehehehe! Do you sing with her??
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Sir Chance-Lot said...

I wish I could just come over there and give you a BIG hug to make you feel better!!!
Love and hugz

Huskee Boy said...

Hi Amber,
Hmmm.. soulds like it was a tough week for you. I want to share this with you.. mom got it from one of Fei's earlier entries and thought it is just so true: “I only need my dog to be healthy and happy; I don’t need him to be perfect or beautiful or so well-behaved. I like him being moody and have his own personality. I like him as he is. I only need him to be healthy and happy. I like him as he is. ”

And ummm.. the pool incident sounded so fun!! (Pls don't tell ur mommy that I said this!)

Snowball said...

Oh... poor girl...I am sure you will do better the next time and congratulations to Chloe.


Max Dex said...

Aww...don't worry so much amber. Life isn't governed by exams! As long as you are obedient to your mummy and listen to her and make her happy, she'll be the happiest girl alive.

Unlike my mummy. she say I am as stubborn as a mule. I wonder what is a mule.

Deefor said...

Amber, you sure had a busy weekend. I don't know much about tests but I think you are very talented. Hope your mommy wins her singing prize.


Hui Min said...

omg your mom is so cool! HM always see people taking part in these competitions on tv and she wished she knew one of them! hee hee i really hope your mommy gets in and wins!!

was the pool meant for little kids? or for pups? :)


PreciOus said...

Poor Amber, it wasn't your fault, must be all the distraction around you. Thanks doG your mummy decided to stop your intermediate classes. I'm sure you'll enjoy agilities much much more. Have fun and good luck to your mummy's singing competition. Imagine the one million dollars she gets could buy you all lots of new toys and treats. Wow!


~Sweety baby~ said...

Ricky Pepper said...

Hi Amber Mae,

Thanks for being my #1 supporter! I sure hope I win my puppy contest, although my mommy thinks that the other people are voting me down by giving me a "1" instead of a "10"! That is not good sports-dog-ship.

I am sorry your dog-gone test was so hard but agility will be fun...your tennis ball-in-cheek is too funny.

Good luck to your mommy in her singings too, and we will keep our paws crossed for her!


Ferndoggle said...

Aw, least you have a good Mommy who isn't pushing you to do obedience it you don't like it. It's supposed to be fun!

Good luck to your Mom. We know she'll do GREAT!

Poor Amber! I agree with Joe, a doggie just ain't supposed to be tested!

All our good wishes to your Mum!

and congrats to Chloe! Please don't be sad, your day will come again Amber Mae, you are sooooooo clever!

Herbie said...

Tadpole said...

Oh you poor, poor girl! I feel so sad for you.... And while that's good news for your mom, I'm still sad for you. :-(

But HA HA HA! That pool story is the BEST!!!

Stanley said...


There is always so much going on at your house, girl!! I can't keep up.

The exploding pool sounds fun. I felt like I was almost there watching it happen. (You're a good storyteller).

Who cares about tests! We already know that you are ONE COOL CHICA!

Congratulations to your mama. Goober hugs to her. Is this singing competition kind of like Idol? We'll miss you if she doesn't help you blog!

Goober love,
