tricky t-day ~ 2 things at once

Oreo and I are still working on the "roll up in a blanket trick". Not even close to getting it.

This week, I decided to see if Oreo was able to multi-task with his blanket at all. I had him "take it", "hold", and then "Scoot". Well, he did all 3 on the first shot!

So, what's the problem Oreo? Roll yourself up already!


Happy Last Day of Annoying Political Phone Messages on Your Answering Machine! (At least for another year anyway)

That's going to be the cutest trick ever once it's finished! It's cute enough even without it being complete :)

I am SO excited that I don't have to see, hear, or deal with all of this political "crap" after tomorrow, it's getting to be a bit annoying!

Hi Sara. At least he has got the hang of rolling over ok.

I love watching Oreo's tricks. He knows so many of them and it is amazing what dogs will do for food and to try and please you!

I like the take it and scoot! Very cute! At least Oreo hangs on to the blanket and rolls to his side. My version is I hold the blanket, drop it like a hot potato and then roll over! I think mom is threatening to get a border collie who she says will learn all these tricks in no time - LOL!

We are so annoyed with the political phone calls and tv ads! Can't wait for the day to be over!

Oreo, we think you are so cute. And, love the way you just fall over to your side. Mom wants to have us learn this trick.

Oreo looks like he could help make the bed with his "pick up and scoot." Another handy trick! =)

Oreo is the cutest, he looks like WHAT?????? You want me to hold that blanket and lay here and look cute??? LOL. He has all the componants sooo well, what a talented young man. BOY I am looking forward to the end of the thousand calls a day, all of them leaving ten min messages about the election, really about done with those!

Very funny Sara! I think he looks like, "Ooof. . .I am just too tired to fix my blankies to day."LOL

I really need to get on the ball with training tricks. I don't know why but I never have been great at that. Except with Meeka. It seems like she new tons of tricks. But then I never really had to teach her to do anything, she just did it. . . She was so awesome.

Very cool though, I know Oreo will get the hang of it!

Ok, I love the time that Oreo grabbed the blanket and just fell over, like he was exhausted. That was hysterical!
