tRicky T-Day!

Mom is feeling better today - not 100% but definitely better! Thanks to everyone for your concerned comments! I am feeling ok too - I actually had to get another round of antibiotics because I still have that bacteria in my system and have not gotten back to normal pooping. I SWEAR I have not been eating more bunny poop (well, maybe one tiny piece here and there - that's all I can sneak as mom has been watching me like a hawk even while being sick)!

I think my tricky t-day trick is a totally logical progression from my puppy in the bowl trick. My aim is not great yet though as you will see!

We are getting tons of snow again. Mom took yesterday off from work but is going today - snow or no snow (but it's for sure snow). She has two rehearsals and will come home in between for me to have dinner. I sure hope she makes it!

Winter is awful this year! Will it ever be Spring?

Gotta zoom!

Im so glad you are both starting to feel better.

What a mean trick. Your mom changed the whole thing around. LOL, but got it anyway. Tricky Ricky!! Good for you.

Priscilla said...

You are so clever to know what your mom wants, Ricky. I have to say, it is a tad mean of her, but you are so clever you need some extra mental stimulation anyway. :) LOL

I'm so glad you are feeling better, along with your mom. I hope the snow isn't too bad for you guys!

Sara said...

That is brilliant! Can Ricky come over and help me empty the dishwasher?

Makes me think of a new know those rings that babies have to put in order on a stick? I bet our dogs could do that!

Glad your mom is starting to feel better. Hope you poop is back to normal soon...that's no fun.

We had snow/ice on Tuesday, and more snow tomorrow. It is getting downright annoying!

Great trick Ricky! I can so feel your brains working from here!

Sagira said...

Oh no...sorry to hear that your mom isn't feeling well either. I hope that your mom feels better soon. :)

Dawn said...

You are so smart Ricky, you boggle my mind!

Glad you're both feeling some better. Tell Mom to drive carefully tomorrow!

Ricky the Sheltie said...

Sara - I know the toy you are talking about and I have seen other dogs doing that trick. We could definitely do it!

Sam said...

That's a cute trick. Very creative. Might have to steal it for next week's Tuesday Training.. I'm seriously running out of things to shape!

Glad your mom is feeling better - I had to take icky antibiotics, too!

Kathy said...

I am super glad you are feeling better, but boy you guys seem to have a lot of snow this year. LOVE Rickys trick, he is so cute! He is just such a talented young man!

katie said...

Ricky, you and your mom are our hero's! Your mom makes me look so lazy.LOL I had the same idea as Sara with the kids toy and putting the rings on the post. I even brought one home to practice with, but haven't made much progress. Magnus is good at at taking things, but Maizey seems to wonder why she should hold something when I can do it myself.LOL

How long does your mom make you practice your tricks each day? Maybe I just need to get organized better or something. . . Another very cute trick!
