Tricks and More Tricks

Hello everydog (and human, cat, hamster, ect.)! Can you believe the weekend is finally here? I was hoping I could drag my humans outside for lots of walks and play time this weekend, but can you guess what I woke up to this morning... Rain. Lots, and lots, and LOTS of rain. I don't normally mind rain, but... The humans do. I even got a new rain jacket to wear on our walks! But the humans just want to be lazy and stay inside by the fireplace. I'll keep working on them though, I'm sure I can drag them out for at least one walk this weekend.

Meanwhile, I'd like to share with you all some of my tricks that I've trained my human to do with me! My human Lizzy made this video. She's not a very good dancer yet in some of our tricks, but she's gettin' there. Enjoy!

I hope you all have a GRRRReat weekend full of fun and walks and not too much rain!

That was really amazing. How did you teach your human to do all that stuff? What kind of treats did you use? Cigarettes? Chocolate?

And I love your Wednesday pictures. My mom felt bad about all that poop. With two dogs and 2 bags and other doggies walking by st*t happens to her too.

Pawsome! Encore! I just love your training tricks! I do a lot of training with Loki & Juno, mostly obedience. It's wild to me that you do all this other agility stuff but you're just beginning to work on "heel"... seems strange to me but then again, Sparky's very smart.

You're not such a bad dancer. BUT we have to admit. Sparky does show you up in the dance routine. He's got quite the wiggle in his two step!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

I think your human will get better at tricks with time, but this is a pawsome start!

Alex said...

Hey Sparky, that was the best talent show I've ever seen. Truly made my day. I was laughing the whole time. I kept on saying " how did he earn that"?

Alex said...

Me again Sparky, if you notice, I'm back again. First, I meant " how did he learn that"? You are so smart.Come see my blog. You are one of my favorites.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Sparky - that was the cutest, cutest thing I've seen in a long time!!! What a wonderful video - you are SOOOOOOO clever!! Am so impressed by all your tricks! You know, my human has always been more into big dogs than little ones and always said she would never have a small dog...but after watching this video, it's the first time she thought that she might like a little dog - if it could be like YOU!! :-) She says it would be nice to be able to to a dance routine with a dog as fast and as athletic as you, for a change - instead of slow, plodding me! :-)

Hero said...

You are amazing!! I especially loved your dance with Lizzy and all the weaving through Lizzy's legs. You and Lizzy should share some training tips with the rest of us pups.

Ruby Red Dog said...

Sparky, you're the best! Looks like you've been working really hard to train your human, and she's coming along quite well.

Amber and Nala said...

OMdoG.. the video is fantastic and the choice of music is so apt!! Ummm.. we love you Lizzy, but we must say that Sparky is a better dancer! :P

Snowball said...

Pegasus3 said...

Need any help with the sqirrels? I love chasing them and rabbits, hares, foxes and playing with other dogs, specially ones that like to run.
Tell you what, we could have a race and the winner gets a roast chicken for a prize.
My human tells me I would have to share it though cos my legs are longer than yours and if I didn't, it would be cheating.
I used to be a 'Bluebell Girl' in Paris, that's where I get the legs from and I love dancing.
Live in England now which is okay as there are loads of squirrels here.
