Furday Friday #9

We are successful, people!! Check it out:

I’m not quite sure why he looks so scared, but it took a lot of coaxing and giving him small pieces of the first treat (as you can see in the right picture) and putting it in between his eyes again, to get him to just leave it alone.  Eventually, he grasped the concept, but he still looks terrified. 

And of course, we cannot forget our goal with Mia:

 Of course she can balance the snack, but the shot glass really threw her for a loop.  I had to break out the good stuff (sliced ham) to get her to do that.  I’m sure with the three day weekend, I can work with her a little more and she will become a little bit more familiar with objects vs. treats, so maybe by next week we’ll have some really interesting photos of Mia the Balancing Wonder Dog. 

 The dogs aren’t the only ones who can do tricks, either.  Just check Sammy out:

He stands up for treats, but that is about it.  Olivia does NOTHING.  She won’t even take a treat from your hand, you have to put it on the floor for her to even consider it. Cause, you know, the floor is cleaner than our hands and she licks her butt and that is cleaner than our hands too. 

Anyhow, I hope everyone enjoys their holiday weekend.  I’m sure Will and I will make our way to the beach (sans dogs) to enjoy the holiday.
