mishmash monday

The calendar may say spring, but winter is hanging on for dear life this year.
Fingers crossed that all our snow melts this week.

my dog is crazy monday

Had a surprise snow day on Friday.  Broke out the new sled.  Chewy went nuts over it.

We had a gorgeous, warm, sunny weekend, so most of the snow is gone now.  

Sledding on Friday, lounging on the deck on Sunday.  March is crazy, kinda like my dog.

tricky t-day ~ prayers

For quite some time, I've been working on teaching Chewy to say his "prayers".  Tried having him prop his front paws up on my leg, and luring his head down with a treat for the longest time, but he just didn't get it.

One day, I decided to try having him put his paws up on my arm while he was in a "beg" position, and he started bowing his head down a bit on his own.  I was then able to shape his head between his paws.  He learned it in two sessions!  Funny how if you change just one little thing, it can help them out.

Now, he's doing it with his paws on my leg.  All we have left is to gain some duration!

You'll see Oreo's new variation on the trick too!

Remember these guys?





                        LOOK!  They grew up!
However, some boys (not saying who) never outgrow the compulsion to line up their match box cars.

chewy is 2!!!!

Chewy turns 2 today.  He may be an "adult" dog, but he thinks he's still a puppy.




 I guess we're going to keep him.
