    I taught Casey roll over at some point..it became nearly default when asked to lie down and I never completely broke her of it.

    The whole, Go Potty and Get a Cookie thing . . .

    Tallulah now tells me she needs to go out and insists I go with her and SEE her pee -- or fake pee :rolleyes:

    She figured out pretty quickly that the fake pee doesn't work in her emergency bathroom tray (or it's raining/just rained and I can't get my little twat wet or I'll D-I-E! tray, which is an emergency in the Tallulahverse) after I laughed at her when she tried it and pointed out the paper wasn't wet.

    I taught Cookie a leg weave. It's her favorite trick.

    She is now wearing a cone.

    Yeah...

    ^ That's hilarious. :rofl1:

    Also :lol-sign: Ow!

    Speak and shake are evil around here, too. Actually, pretty much anything I teach Sienna gets taken to an extreme for a while and becomes her new FAVORITEST TRICK EVER!!1! to be done at inopportune times. For example, when we've been working on retrieves, when I try to put her collar on over her head, she grabs it in her mouth. I have to tell her "put it ON your face, not IN your face LOL. :rolleyes:

    I wish I had never encouraged Victor's tree climbing. I know when I read about a lab falling off of a ladder and breaking her back, that I stopped letting Mary climb the ladder at the play park. Sometimes she would go a little too high..anyway it cost Victor quite a bit of fun, that broken toe may have healed, but it left soreness and sharp pain at certain turns.
