I've been trying to teach Oreo how to roll up in a blanket since 2010! It simply is one of the cutest tricks out there.

Well, roll up in a blanket is our trick goal for this month.
Ricky's mom suggested trying it with something small, like a wash cloth, instead of the blanket.
Well....voila! Oreo got it right away. I was so excited!
Yesterday, Oreo actually did roll himself up in a blanket, and I jackpotted him. But then, he wouldn't do it again. I'm hoping his brain was just fried, and not that the trick scared him. I'll go back to the towel, maybe a hand towel, for our next few sessions before trying with the blanket again. He doesn't usually get scared about tricks, so I'm hoping his brain was just tired.
Chewy still has a long way to go on this one. He's still learning "roll over" (which he is really clutsy & dramatic about) and "hold". Hopefully he's paying attention to Smarty pants Oreo.
