graduated

although she wasn't at all happy about having a cap and tassel on her head, Macie graduated from puppy training class.
We were proud parents as she performed each task perfectly last night. . . down/stay, sit/stay, wait, leave it, and come. Most importantly, she improved with her socialization skills. She started the class with her tail dragging behind her and completely terrified of the other dogs and people. At the end of 8 classes, she started to show interest in sniffing other dogs, as long as they didn't try to sniff her :-)
Baby steps for an extremely shy puppy, but still progress.

Macie's cap & tassel are just too cute, and it looks like the parents/owners are pretty proud.
