Training TM

Lowri - This morning, TM's first client didn't show up, so TM had more time to play with me.  At one point, she got cookies out and gave a piece to my daddy and one to me.  They were very tasty!  She told my daddy to kennel up and gave him a piece when he did.  I RAN to my crate because I know TM will feed me if I am in it.  The door was shut!  I turned around cause TM said my name and a new word "Come".  She showed me the cookie, so I beat feet over to her and tried to look cute.  TM gave me the cookie - just for looking cute.  A minute later, TM said my name and the new word again.  she showed me the cookie and I dashed to her.  I got the cookie AGAIN!  Too cool.  I have trained TM to give me cookies whenever I run to her after hearing the word "Come".  I am so clever!

I have also found out that I can get TM to give me the cookie when she dangles it over my head.  I set my rump on the floor so I can see it better and sure enough, I get a cookie.  I think the word I taught TM to use is "Sit".  She is very predictable!


  1. Lowri, I am pleased that TM is so smart -- you are setting a record getting her trained. I'll bet if you roll over, she'll give you a cookie as well.

  2. Training our hoomans is very important - they are so amusing when they do our bidding! Love, Nicky

  3. That's really NOT funny! They DO train us! We only THINK we are in control--but NOT! Look at what we do because they want us to--we buy sheep for them--we go to the grocery store and buy THEM raw meat--frozen meals for us--we get them a LARGER vehicle than we need--so they can be comfortable in a crate with a soft bed. Do I really need to go on? All we get in return is lots of unconditionallove and affection--hummm, yup, we have the better deal. GOOOOO, Lowri!
