Special Saturday edition of tRicky T-Day!

It's a stretch but can you kind of see how Saturday is a T day?

I am still learning how to hold an object ( a dumbbell ) and do various tricks while not dropping it. The blooper video that could've accompanied this trick video would've been the way longer movie! But for now here is my progress:


(I want you to know that I offered the BANG! all on my own!)


Am I getting closer to being able to hold the blanket and roll over with it? When mom gets brave enough to try again, we'll see! :)

Gotta zoom!

Great job Ricky! You are getting so good at doing two things at once. Plus, you look adorable at the same time. I think that counts as 3 things at once.

We haven't practiced the roll up in a blanket trick in forever....

Priscilla said...

Oh Ricky, you're a super clever boy! How I wish Eva could just hold an object for more than 2 seconds.
Well done, Ricky! You're a star!

Sophie said...

Wow, Ricky's getting great at holding the dumbbell and doing other behaviours too! We're very jealous; Lola can't focus when she has something in her mouth, she just wants to bring it to me and drop it!

oh my Dog Ricky amazing! You held it for so long!
I has tel tell you, I has had that 'click' moment, where I kind of get it now, we is working with holding soft things though.
Hey, for the blanket thing, why not try doing it with a scarf first, it's not so much to roll as with a blanket so easier to hold but the same sensation? I's beed learning that. Gonna post about it on tuesday.

It's a good thing your Mom didn't try to get you to speak while holding the dumb-bell - that would have been very hard! You are doing so good with that. Mom has tried many many times to get me to hold something but I don't like anything (but food) in my mouth !

Kathy said...

Amber-Mae said...

That was very good, Ricky! It was like, you totally forgotten that you had a dumbbell in your mouth. I'm very impressed! TEE HEE

Marie said...

Wow, Ricky - as someone who can barely eat and think at the same time - I am SOOOO impressed at your multi-tasking talents!!! :-) Wow, I think my human would be grateful for me just holding the dumbbell and not dropping it after 5secs - never mind all the fancy stuff!

Slobbers,
