How many bones does your dog have? Maya is working on three. Between her and Lucky, they have about ten Nylabones and they chew every one of them.
Lucky is also enjoying a nice chew on his bone.
We bought Maya a pool this week so her and Lucky could enjoy some water fun while keeping cool in the heat! Maya loves it and jumped in right away, lucky still isn’t too sure and will only get close enough for a drink.
Please remember to keep your pets cool on hot summer days! A pool is a great idea if they will go in it and use it. If they won’t, make sure they have plenty of shade and water to drink!
Maya’s nickname is Pork Chop. These photos pretty much sum up the reason for such a silly nickname! Do your pets have silly nicknames? If so I would love for you to share them!
Lucky and Serenity played this past Sunday again. I love watching them have so much fun! They play so nice and have a great time together. I am glad they have become such good friends. They have both lost their dog companions, so this friendship is a perfect match! They needed eachother! Serenity lost her comanion D.O.G about two years ago and Lucky lost Zeus this past October. So glad these two have eachother! Looking forward to many years of play dates with these two wonderful dogs!!!!!
Lucky is doing really well learning new tricks. We are taking our time and having fun practicing a few minutes each day. Of course he has known “sit” for some time.
He also has known “lay down” for a long time. These two tricks were puppy 101. Of course, “Stay” is also included with these two tricks.
One of my favorites, and I think one of his too, is “leave it”. He is really cute while performing this task, he won’t even look at the treat in front of him until I give him the release command.
We practiced “speak” and because he is soooo good at this one, we also had to learn quiet!
Recently we spiced thigs up with “dance” He likes this trick too cause he truly loves to dance with me. When he dances with me, he holds my hands and we dance in a circle while he is on his back legs. When he dances by himself, he gets up on his back legs and dances by himself.
Lucky also knows how to “shake hands”. I told him it was the polite way to meet new people.
We are still practicing “take a bow” which seems to be really difficult for him to understand and we are also working on crawl, which consists of him lying flat on his belly and doing an army crawl. The important thing is that we are having fun, but we are also making progress! I will post more progress when it happens!
