    Cool Funny Things Your Dogs Do

    Today I put the pool out for Rox and Jackson. Roxie loves the water, I have a kiddies pool and put three buckets of water. Jackson isn't a huge fan because he's never really been exposed to it.

    We were all out there and Dad got a bucket, tipped half the water into the pool and left the other half. He threw the toy in the water to see if Jackson would get it. He tried but was shaking lol, so we let Rox get it. Same again. The third time, he circled and circled the bucket. We were egging him on, he was wagging his tail. Next thing he puts his paw in the bucket and tips it over!! He got his toy out and we laughed for a good five minutes

    An hour ago Jackson wouldn't go near the water. Now he's running in and out of it It's amazing what a bit of exposure and positive reinforcement does.

    Roxie does a dive into the pool and skids from one side to the other. It's a small pool but somehow she still manages.

    What funny things have your / do your dogs do?

    Frosty did the commando crawl this morning for a long haired sausage dog. Look mum, I got no legs too. Always cracks people up.

    Phoenix likes to get under my doona and sheets at night time like right under head and all and cuddle up in between my legs.

    The funniest thing that Clover does is a trick she taught herself called "chin". Any toy or object she is carrying around, she will pin between her chin and a vertical surface, and hold it there. I really need to upload the videos.

    We occasionally let Suzie up on the couch when my bf's mum isn't home (she has never let her on the couch). Anyway, last night my bf and I were on the couch playing games when Suzie jumps up all by herself and gets cosy, even though bf's mum was in the next room (and we didn't tell her to get on the couch like we usually do) She's so silly :P

    The other day i asked her to go on her bed in the lounge room (it's always been "on your mat" so there's no confusion) so she lazily walked from the hallway to just in front of her mat then looks at me sadly, turns around and jumps on our bed instead :P I love how she's one of the family now. She's allowed to be a little naughty now since she's in her twilight years.

    My boy Jack likes to give presents & will pick anything he finds up & offer it to guest.
    1 day I had important bussines type guests & Jack comes bowling out with a pair of my undies for them(dirty 1's off bathroom floor too), i nearly died of shame, lol.
    When Bubba gets the ****s with him he will go & get dry bits & put them down infront of Bubba as a peace offering.
    Bubba is a big Tibetan Mastiff & Jack a shih tzu x maltesse(I'd say but just a guess really) & poeple think it's so cut how he & Bubba are great mates. When we go walking poeple always comment saying look out that big 1 may eat the little fella, lol. Not likely they are true best buds & no one has ever told Jack he's small & I'm quite sure he thinks he's a TM.

    Both Villain and Flirtt have picked up a cute/funny trick at the dog pool; both swim to the exit steps, then turn around, 'duck dive' back into the pool using the steps as a propulsion mechanism. At the opposite end they position themselves to push off from the wall.

    A Dobe friend at the pool is so tall that he puts his hind legs on the pool bottom and walks along instead of swimming. I think he likes to do it so he can look around at everything else happening while he's in the water.

    Dobes, I think, are natural clowns!!

    Just gotta share this one... today I bought a sprinkler for the lawn- the variety that when the water is turned on it turns round and round throwing out big splashy droplets. Partly for the garden, partly because Villain loves to chase the water droplets.

    So, Villain is playing happily with it, then he picks it up and takes it over to my mum sitting in the shade under a tree and dumps it in her lap. She got soaked. He was very pleased with himself. I dug out some tent pegs, lol!

    I just had to share this...on Monday I got 2 parcels for Suzie, one was the puppy pack (which she had no interest in) and the other was a sample of Nature's Gift dry food. As soon as she sniffed it she picked the entire envelope up in her mouth, took it into the lounge room (her favourite place to eat treats) and tore open the envelope, grabbed the sample and came over to me. I took that as "mum, I'd like some breakfast".

    I also forgot to share the story of her first introduction to the shaggy rug in our bedroom :P
    So we unrolled this giant black shaggy rug in the bedroom and then in comes Suzie to sniff around. Normal enough until she decided to do a poo right in the middle of it >.<
    We could never be angry with her though, since she's colour blind it's fair to assume that she thought it was grass. We just had to teach her not to sniff around and she's never had any accidents since.
