Aw, the life of a working dog! My lady often puts me to work and actually I enjoy working most of the time. For this video we did have to do things over several times. Still in the long run it was fun, how many of us dogs can say they reviewed a book!!
Once I was a puppy, I thought like a puppy, I peed like a puppy, well I was a puppy. Even puppies grow up , and while I was busy growing up so did my human John. He wasnt a pup when I cam to live with my family, but he was a youngun.Now he has grown up.
He found himself a lovely young lady and he married her. Now when they come to visit I get to have twice as much love.
Enjoy each day whether you share it with a puppy or humans. Live in the moment and take time to love those you love!
Here I am , obeying the lady's wishes which today happened to be doing retrievals over a jump.
Everything is going fine. I am doing my jump that the mister always asks the lady why she wants me to jump such a small fence when i clear it by so much.
I bring her the toy everytime, but I am now noticing that Evil cat Pilgrim has come over to watch the action. When we train at lunch he always comes over and usually lays under my jump which means I have to worry about him clawing at me while I jump.
While it might look like I am running out on this jump, I am merely taking evasive action while still obeying the lady,note Pilgrim was waiting for me on the other side of the jump .
Attack, see why I call him the Attack Cat?
I had to drop my toy and tell him to knock it off!
The lady came and removed him from the training area and I got back to obeying her commands. Sometimes training means having to ignore what you can, and removing what you can't!
Humans need to exercise their brains more , us dogs learn new tricks to keep from getting senile. I love trick training so much that every day at lunch the lady spends about 20 minutes teaching me new things. Check out my video on how to learn to bow!
Notice how the lady shows using her hand to keep me from going into a down, that is the trick to this trick. Has your human taught you to do tricks? Do you enjoy them as much as I do??
Some of you know how much I love my toys, not just any old toy tho, treat dispensing toys!
The lady thinks it gives me plenty of exercise, both mental and physical. While I do get exercise, I hardly notice I am having so much fun. If your person hasnt given you a treat dispensing toy, you need to do some begging. Here I am with my current favorite, the Tug-a-Jug. I do bean myself in the head, but I have learned to duck!
Allow Hugs! Now many of you are probally cuddlers. Even tho I am small and many think I should be a lap dog, I am not. I do find that even if cuddling is not something I adore, I can tolerate it and to be a good canine citizen, I must tolerate it! Once again the lady wants pics ,this time a few of herself and me. I did get some tasty treats for tolerating the cuddle time!
