tRicky T-Day

Yesterday's Wordless Wednesday was a preview of my latest endeavor! We saw this video of Nana the Border collie balancing stuff, and she is just so incredible that we were inspired to do a little simple balancing too!

First cheese:

   
Then a squeaker:                                                                  

                                                                 
A fish bone:

                                                                         
And then a nylabone:


The first time I ever tried to balance that big biscuit on my nose, I did it and then flipped it perfectly into my mouth! Mom was shocked and of course didn't get a picture or video. She tried and tried to get me to do it again when the camera was running but I wouldn't. Ha!

Gotta zoom!

Clever boy! That's the way to get more treats!

That's awesome!

Maybe I'll try it with something other than food. I know the hooligans won't sit calmly when food is on their nose.

Nice job, Ricky! Not only does it show that you're able to resist temptation, but you must also have good balance and sit very still!

that is awesome Ricky. Mom has been trying for over 4 years just to get me to hold something 'in' my mouth. It is the one trick I refuse to learn...but yours looks great - especially if you get to eat the treats afterwards

Very cool Ricky! And of COURSE you won't do that biscuit trick while the camera is on. A guy's got to have SOME magic left!

Great job Ricky! I can only do that with a little biscuit not a whole big Nyla bone!

Sagira said...

Look at you with all those things on your nose. Great job! :)

Now there is a great balancer, good job Ricky but can you believe what your mom keeps thinking up for you to do, LOL, she likes to keep you busy and happy doesnt she??? You are lucky to have such a good mama!

Hi Y'all,

Humans are soooo slow! They always miss the neat stuff we do! Serves them right when we refuse to repeat it.

Y'all come by now,
