tricky t-day ~ back to school

This is more of a blooper reel than a trick. I didn't have much time this week for trick training. So, here is something we threw together quick, and it shows!

My goal was to get Oreo's two front paws on the desk, and for him to pick up and hold the pencil in his mouth.

The results were not all that different from what happens during my day at work.

Great job Oreo, you taught her to fetch the pencil! You are the head of your class!

Rob said...

I can tell Oreo was really impressed at how quick you learn to fetch the stick and bring it back to him when he threw it. Next week its a frisbee!

My car does have a bumper stick that says, "my dog is smarter than your honor student"....maybe I should get one that says, "my dog is smarter than the teacher"

Rob said...

The look on his face said who was teaching who!!

I'm impressed that he'd even get up in the desk! No way Katie would do that. And he did pick up the pencil on his own a couple of times...but geeze Mom, the pencil didn't taste anything like a treat! LOL

The entire video is so cute! Oreo was getting it the actual trick but I love how he vaults over the desk at the end of the video. True agility dog! He looks just like me when he spits out the pencil as fast as he can to get the treat! Too funny!

I kept expecting to see Oreo offer cross paws while he had his front feet on the desk!

Can you tell if the antibiotics are helping Misty this time? I hope she is feeling better.

Well, seems like maybe Oreo's been passing notes with Dare on how to spit things out of his mouth. LOL

Adorable video!

LOL
Great trick! Oreo is SOOO ready to go to school now!

Ricky,
Misty is marginally better. She is still not 100% though. I'm waiting for a call back from my vet with the results of yet more tests.

She is eating normally, and relatively happy, so I'm not too concerned.

What a fun trick!! I'm sure Oreo will get it down soon enough.

Are you back at school with kids now?

Sara said...

Yep, we've been back for about a week now. So far, so good!
