In December, I vowed in this post to do a few things over my Christmas break (since I never did get around to writing a Christmas letter). Besides becoming masters of Donkey Kong Returns for Wii (which we are only one level away from beating!), I also vowed that Daniel and I would teach Turk at least one trick.
Our inspiration for Turk’s latest trick comes from one of my favorite blogs, Two Pitties in the City, which is about a couple’s life in Chicago with their two adorable pitties, Mr. B & Ms. M.
Mr. B and Ms. M do all kinds of adorable tricks and I’d like for Turk to follow their lead.
I really want to expand Turk’s repertoire because: (1) it’s cute to show off at parties; and (2) it helps to calm Turk down when he has a task to complete.
We used this as inspiration:
Turk managed to pick this trick up pretty quickly…isn’t he a champ?!
Unfortunately, Rufus cannot be bothered with learning any tricks…
Daniel is working on teaching Turk to ‘heel’ and to ‘take a bow.’ We’ll see how it goes…he’s the trick-teacher in this house.
What cool tricks have you taught your dogs?
