Monday Question

Can you do any tricks?

Pocket:  I was raised with Foley who found doing tricks to be demeaning to dogs.  I wished I learned them.  They do make our parents happy.

River:  I can shake hands.  I can also walk backward on two legs but that is not a trick it is just a way to keep my eyes on my food bowl while walking to where I know it will be placed.


  1. We all do pretty much the same things - sit, stay, down, shake. Mom keeps trying to get us to balance those treats on our snooters, but we don't see the point, just let us eat them, OK.

  2. Arty and I can sit, lay down and spin round and round...Jakey is an expert dancer/begger! Mama doesn't kknow why...but we all refuse to shake paws. We just like to keep her on her toes!

  3. I will do trick butt ONLY if there are TREATS involved and then I do my whole routing, sit, give paw, down, roll over....then snatch TREAT

  4. What are tricks? ~Xena
    We can "sit" and Xena is learning "down." Being told "down" scares me and I run away. ~Lucy

  5. Although I can be tricky at times I don't do any tricks!

  6. I do all kinds of tricks! Okays, not really....I do the sit, stay, shake, high-five, down, leave, drool
    I do the drool the bestest
