Getting them to throw the ball is it’s own game. I try sitting here and giving them the ball, lots of starring, then try another spot, another spot, maybe a bark here and there and then eventually I’m given no other choice but to almost sit on their laps until they see the ball I’ve placed SO easy for them to find. Humans 🙄
The hoomans work hard so we can play hard. We wents to doggie day camp today! It was paw-some!!! We gots snackos, and scritch scratchies, and did all the zooms! Now we need lots of sleeps 😴😴
An excerpt from my trainer:
"His understanding of routine is amazing. I was giving Max his medication on the porch, a chewable pill for arthritis called Galliprant. It has a beef flavor. .
Max dropped the pill and both he and I were unable to find it.
We went inside to get a new pill and just as I was handing Max the pill, I saw Everest just outside of the kitchen. He opened his mouth wide and pushed with his tongue onto the floor Max's Galliprant pill we'd dropped on the porch. .
I was amazed he'd retrieved it, brought it over 40 into the house and despite having it fully in his mouth, spit it onto the ground the moment he saw I had made eye contact. It was by far the most impressive retrieve I have ever seen. Indeed, the most intuitive - it was clear he connected the pill to me in some fashion. Whether he knew Max needed it, or I would want it back I can't say. But the results are amazing."
Needless to say I am so proud of my boy and I cannot wait to bring him home. He is a natural and will be coming home knowing multiple tasks. I believe I will make the drive on the 29th. We are so close! .
