tRicky T-Day!

Mom is very excited about today's tRicky T-Day trick - get in the suitcase!! She always thought this was a super cute trick and she's very happy that I am learning it! We started out with the suitcase all the way open and I learned my job was to get in it and to lie down. Then she propped the lid open with about a three-foot pvc pipe (stolen from my indoor jump) and I learned to get in again. Then we went down to a ruler and you can see the results! The lid for the suitcase is unfortunately heavy (the way it is built), so it's not going to be all that easy to open it with my nose but soon I will get that too!

Tomorrow I go for two days of a trial near my cousin Wilson's house! We are driving straight to the trial and then my aunt Laura is coming to hang out with us and to be the official videographer. Then we will spend the night at their house and go back to the trial on Saturday. It is indoors at a soccer facility - should be a nice place. I won't be able to post anything or visit anyone's blogs until we get home on Sunday. Wish us luck!

Gotta zoom!

I think that is one of your best tricks ever Ricky! I loved your last try when you went allllll the way in and the lid shut. Too cute. Love it!

Good luck at your trial this weekend. We're cheering for you!

Oh my Ricky, I'm laughing so hard I have to wipe away the tears. I'm afraid I'm going to wake up KATIE! You are amazing! No way would Katie do that! You fit into that suitcase perfectly, good thing, as you have a trip coming up! LOL

HAVE FUN at the trial! And have fun visiting with Wilson too! (and of course Aunt Laura!!)

I agree with everyone else - so so cute! Well done!

Oh Ricky!! That is the CUTEST trick! You're so clever! And so determined too - that is my problem - I am very easily deterred and give up very easily so I always have trouble learning any tricks which involve a bit of effort. If that was me and I had to push a bit to lift the heavy lid of the suitcase, I would just give up very quickly and not keep trying...Hsin-Yi finds this so frustrating!
