tRicky T-Day!

Second verse, same as the first!

Not really but mom seems to be OBSESSED with the dumbbell! Maybe that is really where the word OBedience comes from!

Mom got some advice from my grandma Catherine and also watched my uncle Dax's latest puppy training video and here is the progress I have made. Baby steps but still progress!



We got more snow today! Unbelievable! But at least the temperature was in the 20s and we could go for our walk. It sure is icy and slippery though! It is not even officially winter yet!

Gotta zoom!

You will get the hang of it Ricky!

So how many tricks do you know?

Diana said...

20 degrees, I would say thats to cold to walk. LOL

Looks like Ricky is doing really well with the dumb bell. Diana

Priscilla said...

Woo Ricky! That's an awesome trick!! If we got Eva to hold the dumbbell, she'd be chewing it now!

And also the crossed paws....well, Rosie has been trying to teach Eva that but....well...baby steps right?

Sara said...

You've made a lot of progress since last time. Great job. I loved all your cute little extra tricks thrown in too. You're so cute Ricky.

Sam said...

I can't watch the video because my internet is on the fritz -- AGAIN -- but from the sounds of it, you're doing really well. Marge did great with the dumbbell earlier this year, but doesn't seem to like it anymore. For now, we've gone back to practicing with stuffed, soft toys.

Wow! You did a great job! You're so quick with your tricks.
This is the first video my puppy has ever shown any intrest in watching. She sat down on my lap and watched the whole thing. I hope she learned something - LOL!

Kathy said...

I want to teach Cricket to carry a toy....she gets so excited around trials and reaches to bite leashes, anyones so I thought if she could carry something, looks like you are getting that carrying something down really well, so any words of advice? Love the trick at the end, Ricky you have been busy! Glad you are staying warm!

Marie said...

Looks like you're making great progress! Keep it up and you'll be a retrieving fool before long. We're going to go check out Dax's latest video now.

We will have to start calling you JAWS soon, you will have the strongest choppers around carrying that dumbell. You are such a clever little dude.

You is doing so well with that. We is learning hold but with a tennis stick thingy instead. It so hard to hold things in my mouth! It not my favourite at all.

Hey, I see you got snow too!
