Thanks to Ricky for giving us the idea to wedge our peanut ball in between the coffee table and couch. I think it is giving Misty a sense of security, and some independence getting on the ball. I still have to lift her back legs onto the ball, but she puts her fronts on quite enthusiastically.
Thanks to Marie & Kathy for suggesting the disc. Both my dogs love it. Misty needs to use the nubby side for some extra traction, and I make it harder for Oreo, by giving him the smooth side. They literally fight over who gets to go first, pushing each other off the thing. Misty wins. She didn't earn the nickname "tank" for nothing.
After my scary Misty post (sorry, I didn't realize so many of you would react so deeply to my first paragraph, I should have started with a disclaimer!), I thought Misty's fan club would enjoy seeing Misty active, sparkly, and hungry.
The music I picked for this video makes me want to teach my dogs to do the limbo. Hmmmmm. I think I just inspired myself.
Now that Misty has gained some strength, we will be cutting back our workouts to every other day. This will leave us more trick training time. Hopefully next week, I'll have a new trick to show you.
