tRicky T-Day!

This week's tRicky T-Day trick was completely inspired by a new YouTube friend newbear95 's video of how to teach this trick - it is so cute! We found out about her video through another YouTube friend kikopup. Check out newbear95's video and then watch mine:



I didn't have a hard time learning this trick but we did it a little bit differently than newbear95. I already knew "dig" and I learned that by scratching at a post-it. So then mom transfered the post-it to her leg, then to her arm and then to her back. She told me to dig and then gradually changed the command to "scratch back"! Give it a try and then you too can be your mom's own personal back-scratcher - LOL!

Gotta zoom!

What a handy trick, especially if your mom has an itch where she can't reach! You are too cute Ricky!

Oreo knows how to dig holes, but we never learned how to put in on cue. We should work on that one.

Happy Barkday from Elyria, Ohio - We are visiting Dog Dad's hooman family. It sure looks like you have been having fun.

We have been enjoying the cooler Ohio weather. Florida was hot, hot, hot when we left.

Hahaha thats SO cool, what a clever boy. I'm jealous of the summer clothing you're wearing, and the beautiful sunshine in your agility practise videos. It's cold and wintery in our country now.

Ha! HA! This is another trick that's definitely for the little dogs! If I tried this on your human, she'd look like a victim of Freddie Kruger from Nightmare on Elm Street...have you seen the size of my talons - er - claws?! :-) Once I raked one paw down Hsin-Yi's bare leg by mistake and she had 4 red lines scored into her flesh for days! Lucky it didn't break the skin though! But it really hurt and she was hopping around, moaning for ages! :-)

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane
