At team training today we did more retrieves! When all of the following things were placed on the floor for me to pick up guess which one I chose first? Metal dumbbell, wooden dumbbell, plastic dumbbell, purse, dollar bill, paper plate, water bottle, mitten, plastic bags, metal spoon, and screwdriver. I ended up picking all of them up but I chose the dollar bill first! Suzan was very proud of me! :)
We also practiced "under" for getting under tables and such. Very useful at restaurants. And then we did "up" with my front paws on a bench, table, wall, and then an open door. I did great but I didn't like the door so much, it's kinda weird when it moves but I guess that's the point. I'm supposed to shut it.
Our last thing we were working on was tugging a lever door open. We got through the "take it" and "hold" of a tug strap and we're working on "back". We'll continue with that one tomorrow.
We breezed through our homework tonight! Cane - no problem! Cans - no problem!
Look what was waiting for us at home!!!! Tied to our newspaper box was a beautiful doggie balloon and other balloons that said "it's a girl"! And an adoption/welcome home card for ME!!!! Suzan's very thoughtful friend Caren really surprised us! Thank you Auntie Caren!!!!
