Almost all of the tricks we are working on right now we are copying from Sara, Oreo and Chewy! They are taking Silvia Trkman's internet class and we are living vicariously through them. Here is a little video of me practicing jumping from the floor to the top of an object. I like this but don't know how I will feel about something less stable and smaller.
Last week mom had a really good time with her friend and abandoned me to drive all over OH to take her friend's daughter to play for some big name violin teachers. They had lots of fun! I, on the other hand, not so much.
This week mom is busy with shopping, etc. She is behind in Christmas preparations. Once again, I am the one suffering. But a little while ago we made this video of me trying to learn to lift up my front and rear legs on the same side. It is a silly video (and rather long) but we hope you are entertained because you won't be wowed by my ability! LOL!
Boy, not much has been happening around here. The weather got cold this week after we had even more rain. Since Friday is has been sunny but cold. Mom and I went to the park yesterday and tried to stay out of the mud and still have fun.
I get to work on my tricks at least once a day. I am doing much better with "scoot" and "froggy" but the verdict is still out on whether or not I know how to put one bowl into the other bowl. I am also working on lifting two side legs up at once. I must be very cute trying it because mom is always laughing.
This week we had several strangers here at our house. Two men came and made lots and lots of noise and fixed some plumbing problems. Then some man came on Friday and put an electrical outlet next to the fish pond so we can keep the filter going all winter so the fish don't freeze solid. I was very busy barking all about it.
In a couple days mom's best friend from college and her daughter are coming here for a visit. Mom hasn't seen her friend in 10 years. She is pretty excited about it and is cleaning the house and doing laundry, etc. I just hope having company doesn't interfere with the important things in life - my dinner, my walks, my training sessions, and my treats!
Hope to have some pictures or video to go with my next post. I could barely get my lazy mom to help me write this little message. Hope you all had a nice weekend and have more Christmas shopping done than we do!
Mom wants to know if you guys think I actually know what I am doing when I stack bowls in this video or is it all merely luck? Rude question I think! Of course I know what I am doing. But I have to humor her by letting her pose the question.
I am now doing this trick with smaller bowls but we don't have it on video yet.
My name is Ricky (Covewind Little Ricky, AX,AXJ,CGC) and I am a six year old tri-color Shetland Sheepdog. I do agility and I like to learn tricks too! This blog is about all that and some other stuff as well!
