Tricks

Hey hey hey blogaroos. Squirmy here on a super Saturday. Particularly super because there is no snow in the forecast! Yippeeeeee. Back to longer walks!!!! The Warden got pretty lazy with us this icy winter. Some excuse about not falling on ice. Blah blah. But we’re feeling Spring in the air – so it will be good to get back to our regular routine of dragging her down the road. Yee haw.

The Warden saw something funny the other day, and I decided to share it with you. This was on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy has, I think a Golden Retriever- and is a dog fan. We like Jimmy. Anyway, he showcases talented dogs. The Warden said I would be just like the first guy, Tonka – even though we don’t resemble each other. She says we’re alike because when you THINK I know something, and you want to show someone what I can do, I don’t do it – like Tonka and his limbo trick. I don’t know what’s more entertaining- Tonka, or Jimmy who is laughing so hard. The Warden thought it was pretty funny too.

The three legged dog performed fine. I’m not sure it’s the BEST trick in the world, but at least he did it.

Now the Oreo guy – he looks as excited as the Coyote when you pull out a camera. The Coyote could probably do that trick. I mean he’s not fussy about food, and he definitely has the disgusted stare down perfectly. The Warden said she’d love to see a PON do this. Now THAT would be a trick. I’d show how with one turn of my head I could eat all of them. Which probably aren’t that good for dogs. Unless they are those fake Oreo dog biscuits Like they think we dogs don’t know the difference. Trust me. We do. Anyway – check out the performances:

I had class yesterday and all was going great until our teacher took us outside in a fenced area to do literally, 2 minutes of attention work. Well, I pulled a Tonka. Sure I can do certain things like heelwork and recalls and stays in a controlled, familiar environment- but outside, I barely knew my name. When I realized the Warden had treats, I was a BIT better. But holy macaroni- I have LOTS of work ahead of me!

OK. Time to get ready to take the Warden on a LONG walk. She needs it.

Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe.
