OK, Jeff is constantly telling me, "Why don't you let them be dogs, not circus animals."
Yea, but being an elephant tamer is so much fun! Although, I probably would have chosen trapeze artist if given the choice.
Chewy has been learning the classic "elephant trick" for awhile now. Unlike Oreo, I'm teaching him without any lures. Takes longer, but hopefully he is learning how to learn in the process.
I feel like we are finally getting somewhere now.
I threw in a bit of what Oreo has been working on as well.
Remember last week's mickey button trick? Well, I've been teaching Chewy to hit the Mickey button when he needs to go "potty".
Sometimes, he gets a bit too excited and repeatedly hits the button, bites it, or knocks it around the kitchen like an air hockey puck.
The other day, the button blurted out nastily, "OFF WITH YOUR HEAD," instead of the cheerful, "Oh, Boy!"
It shocked me. I haven't been able to figure out how that happened, or make it do it again.
Huh. Was the manufacturer playing some evil trick on Disney? Or is the button simply annoyed with Chewy's antics?
