OK, we've watched in awe as three of our dog friends, Honey, Ricky and Marge, have demonstrated their ability to get a tissue out of a box. I've tried this with Oreo in the past, but all he would do is rip tiny pieces off the tissue hanging out of the box.
Well, I couldn't allow ourselves to be shown up by three other dogs, OK 4, because I know I've seen one of Lian's dogs do it too.
Out came the tissue box on Sunday.
Well, wouldn't you know? Oreo caught on real quick this time. He does have a competitive side.
Oreo was so excited to be working on a trick with an object. We haven't done that in awhile, and Oreo really enjoys training me to click him for doing cool stuff.
We still need to perfect this, but here is what we've accomplished in two sessions. Hopefully, in a few weeks, Oreo will take a tissue from the box, bring it to me, and then throw it away (remember I taught him that trick awhile ago). Ambitious? Yep.
For now, here's your weekly entertainment.
Oh yea, that stuff we had for FREE at the end of our driveway caused a traffic jam! We had two cars pulled over with people out milling about. Jeff had me get up off the couch, just in case they started to brawl over our fabulous stuff.
No brawl. Guess they worked it out amongst themselves.
