One of the things mom and I love the most of all about having a blog is all of the awfully nice people and animals we have met in blogville 🙂 Since I hurt my knees, you all have been so sweet and it really cheers me up to read so many good wishes!
Well, I don’t know if you know Flea, but she is a very nice lady who writes the blog for Jones’ Natural Chews and when she heard I was hurt she sent me a bottle of joint supplement that she did not need. And just to be extra nice, she sent some Beef Liver Taffy along too 🙂 Now she didn’t ask me to write about any of this stuff, but this special package made me so happy and the taffy was so yum yum yummy that I really wanted to tell you all about it.
These taffies smelled so delicious I tried to rip the package right open! And then mom used them to work on the new things I am learning and I did my very best work yet!
So here are some videos of what we are working on 🙂
First we worked on touching (with my nosie) and tapping (with my paws)
Then we did some balancing on top of my head. I can tell you it is much harder to balance a smell-o-riffic treat than a boring old pumpkin stuffie!
Then we worked on holding things in my mouth. Mom says I made a “breakthrough” today because it was the first time I didn’t just spit the thing right out.
And then we worked on playing “dead,” which we’ve only worked on once before. I gotta work on staying “dead” longer, but I’d say I’m off to a good start 🙂
So even though I haven’t been able to go for walks or play fetch, mom has been keeping me busy 🙂
Have you learned any new tricks lately?
