Howdy there Pals!!
I haven’t been here on my bloggie for qwite a bit, but I’m about to make a new start. And it’s all abowt tricks today. Yep, that’s what you heard – tricks. And it’s all the fault of a Moose.
No, not THAT kind of Moose. This be a moose moose what hangs owt with Fi & Abby ofur at Another Tequila Sunrise
I blames this kind of Moose – which is a Labradog Moose. Qwite a different species. But see how his name be on his bed?? Well, he definitely is a Moose.
This is one of my nooo Twitter pals, and he has been finking about getting a special award for doing tricks. So he gave a challenge to any pals who wanted to join him wif learning tricks. Woo can learn more ofur at his bloggie Southern Most Moose
As da hu-mum has been trying to get back into more walkies & games wif me, she got to thinking that learning sume nooo stuff would be good for my brain too.
So the ofur week we had a couple of sessions on remembering the fings what I shud be able to do. I was pretty good at remembering. This is da list of what fings I can do at da moment:
Dat normal fings:
Sit – I pritty good & fast at this. We haf to check if I still do it wif just a hand signal. And I haf to learn better about getting back up to sit if I lying down.
Down – I pritty good at this too. In fact sometimes I super speedy thunk down so hard I might make a hole in the ground!! BOL!! I finks I remember da hand signal fur this one.
Wait – (this the werd I do fur ‘stay’) I pritty good at this up to a point because I haf to do it efury morning & night to get my noms. I waits fur about 5 seconds if da mum abowt 10 metres away. Dat be too far fur me to be away from her. Da mum finks we werk on dat a bit.
Heel – well, I doesns’t know that werd!!! I just does it naturally when I be off leash. And not at all when I be on leash. Da mum can’t figure dat one. So maybe we werk on dat one some. When da mum figures owt how.
I also gits inside when I am told, and gits up, and off & all dat stuff. I moves when Mum asks it appears, but da hu-mans never taught me any of dat. I just figured it owt.
As fur tricky tricks, at dis moment I only does a few.
I does ‘shake’ fur pawshake with my right paw, and ‘other paw’ fur a pawshake with my left paw. But I has to do them in order.
I does ‘roll over’ – I rolls half way ofur. I doesn’t go roly-poly right ofur. I can do this one wif a hand signal too.
I brings da mum da newspaper every night. When da dad comes home wif it he gifs it to me & I carry it quite nicely.
I can even usually pick up random things off the floor & under the table when da mum can’t reach them. She points to it & says ‘give’ and I picks da fing up & brings it to her. I does get a bit muddled if there be more than one fing, but her is planning on teaching me da names of sume fings now.
So all in all, I is a pritty smart dog. But da mum & I fink old dogs can learn nooo tricks. So we are going to find owt. I not so sure if a old hooman can learn new trick tho’. !!!! (Just kiddin’ hu-mum. I luvs you really. )
In case woo be wanting to see a pickture or two ob me, well, here they is.
