tRicky T-Day!

This week's trick is a game we have been playing for a while now (probably 3 months or more) and we kept waiting for it to be perfected but it just isn't happening! But through the magic of editing, we made a video showing only the good stuff! :) The object is word discrimination and distance (with a little body language thrown in). Sometimes I think I know better than mom and do my own thing instead of listening to her (but not in the video - LOL!).

We are pretty snowed in here - it's very tough to walk in the neighborhood but we do try. We also try to play in the yard, but that's difficult too. It's not as bad here as lots of other places but it's bad enough! I am just keeping my paws crossed that we can go to practice at the club tomorrow morning - our first agility (other than a jump in the bedroom and a tunnel in another bedroom) since Feb.1st!!

Gotta zoom!

This is a great video Ricky! Great discrimination. The one where you jump on the chair is great!

Hope the snow clears soon, we had a tiny dusting last night but it's nearly gone now.

Cute cute cute! I hope you get to go to agility tomorrow morning! It helps to have a chance to run and run doesn't it! Winter is almost over...or at least we hope it is!

Sara said...

That's a fun game! I can imagine it is difficult. I'm sure you just want to offer all your tricks once the chair comes out!

Hope your weather stays clear for agility!

That is so good!! You're really paying attention to your mom's cues.

Oddly enough, our snow is melting (we've only ever had about a foot of snow on the ground at one time throughout the whole winter) and you can see a bit of grass in some places! And we're in Canada. Huh....

Great job! I really admire you with all the tricks you have learned, such a clever boy!

What a fun game...we would like to learn it so that we can use it as a fun show for our clients at Cliff View Retirement Center. Hope you don't mind...we will keep you posted on how we do...and let you know when we will be performing it during a future visit.
Great Job!

Oh wow- Ricky - you are very clever to be able to distinguish between all those words and positions and actions!!! We are so impressed...Hsin-Yi would like to try something similar with me but would have to find some kind of giant chair like that or similar which could be tall enough to for me to go under and strong enough (and wide enough) for me to sit on! :-)
