Brownie's Puppy Graduation

I've been taking Brownie to a puppy training class at petsmart for the last two months. She is pretty scared of other people and dogs, so we mainly wanted her to go so that she could get more socialized.
Last Friday they had their last class and graduation! Everyone in the class took their dogs around the store "passing off" different things that they were supposed to learn: walking nicely on a leash, heeling, coming when called, stay, sitting for greetings, and one trick. Brownie didn't so too well with the tests because she gets so nervous around other people that she gets REALLY distracted. We paid money for the class, though, so we got to graduate :)
The actual graduation was soooo cute!! They had caps and gowns for most of the dogs (they didn't have one small enough for Brownie) and they had us line up in the training ring. The instructor then got on the intercom and announced:"Let me present the graduating class of 2008" and then she said their names as we walked around the store to the graduation song. Afterwards all of the dogs got doggie ice cream and we had a little party. The other dogs got bored with the ice cream, but not Brownie! She just assumed "more for me" and started eating from everyones. That's my little piglet.

Awww, too cute! BTW, love your hair like that! Wish I could get mine to do something other than misbehave!
