Monday news

First of all, I'd like to thank everybody for your helpful comments in our previous post!

Rosie said she'll try and get a no-pull harness for me from England if we can't find one here in Malaysia.

This week, the humans said they will try to get me used to all the sounds and movements I bark at -
the vacuum cleaner, lawnmower, oven, plastic bags, the broom, and cars :)
Like they're going to succeed!!!!!
I'll keep you posted on my progress :)

For now, here are some of my dress-up Eva pictures!

The humans had to get me to do a stay because I didn't like those things on my head!

The Big Baddie
Meanie Pirate
Cutie Pie
Me, the princess on my throne!


Sara said...

I love your dress up Eva photos! Here expressions are hysterical.

Good luck with the noise stuff, it can be a long process, but starting while she's young is great!

Mango said...

Do you mean from your comment that you have a labra stuffie? Go ahead and send a photo and I will decide if he / she qualifies. Don't forget to include his or her name.


Dawn said...

Yes you are a princess Eva! And no they will never "train" you, you will always train THEM! LOL

Ohhhh Myyyyyy I am DYING from those photos!! They are beyond precious!!! I have never seen anything so cute!!

Can't wait to hear about the progress you make with Eva about the sounds.

Dakota's list of things that make him bark is:
2) Kids playing ball outside
3) Open garage doors
4) anyone walking outside lol
5) the toaster
6) garbage disposal
7) me pounding chicken breasts for filets lol
8) opening cans with manual can opener
9) Spraying PAM in pans
10) me stirring eggs or something to that effect loudly
11) The hand beaters
There has to be more!
I look forward to your updates!

Little Miss Jada Kiss said...

Cute Cute Cute! Love the crossing of the paws!! I'm pretty good at the sit-stay command when posing for pictures because I'm very treat-oriented. Hope things work out well for you Eva :)

Remington said...

You are a model! How beautiful you are!

Diana said...

Eva is very cute in the hat!! Diana

Sagira said...

You are such a pretty princess!

I love your hat pictures, Eva! We also love the new header picture and colors on your blog.

I hope you learn to stop pulling. Walks are a lot more fun when you don't! I had to learn that, too!


Mango said...

Good luck with the barking stuff. I used to bark at the wheelbarrow and the lawn tractor but I found it too tiring. Stupid PeeWee barks at the vacuum and it makes momma say HBO words. Hehehe.


Lola said...

You are beautiful in all the pictures, Eva. I love the hats, but that last one with the crossed paws is especially lovely.

lotsa licks, Lola

AC said...

Eva, you're so expressive and so darn cute in your pictures!

Best of luck with the barking. It may take awhile and a lot of patience, but a few weeks (or months) of consistent work now will sure be easier than years of barking!

Have you been taking classes from Bella the Westie.. We love the last picture the most.. and you aare right.. You are definitely the princess on your throne.

Hi Eva! Here's the training tips that came with Katie's weave poles... "The weave poles take the longest of all the obstacles t5o train. It is important to not rush the process. It can take days and weeks, and even after that you may need to return to the baby steps to reinforce it. If you don't have the optional clip-on wire guides (which helps to create a visual pathway), slowly guide your dog in and out of the poles using a combination of holding his leash and gently bumping/guiding your dog in and out of the poles. You should give him a treat a few times along the path to make him willing to follow your hand. It is also important to always have your dog enter on the RIGHT side of the first pole, so to start, give him a treat right at that point. Do not reward your dog if he skips a pole. Just say 'oops', and go back to the beginning. If he keeps skipping the poles, review the baby steps, giving a treat at shorter stages until he is more reliable. To encourage speed, give an abundance of praise (and a special treat) every time your dog performs all the poles successfully.

Remember to have fun, be patient, and go slow. Keep his interest with a confident and happy voice (dogs love silly voices too!). Reserve special food treats (or a special toy) just for agility. Don't over-drill your dog until he gets discouraged or exhausted, and always end on a successful and positive note!"
