Learned to get in and out of the bathtub by herself- just for fun. And to make tub cleaning an every day event.
Started a collection of house shoes behind the toilet. Because, who wouldn't???
Tried two or three more times to make friends with Dixie- by circling her closely and repeatedly while she walked across the yard. No score for this one. But isn't about to give up.
Barked and leaped at the mop the entire time it was performing its duty- decided housekeeping was exhausting and took a much-needed nap.
Discovered the delights, short-lived though they were- of an empty water bottle. Once it began to fray, it got tossed.
Has her bedtime routine mapped out with no problems going to her crate at night. Wish same could be said for the housebreaking.
Got stuck behind the tv and pulled the sound bar off the shelf. It was clearly time to rearrange the furniture.
Discovered a squirrel skull in the shrubbery along the fence and tossed it around until mom realized what she had. Mom is such a spoil sport.
Went to the city park where a hundred- ok, six- children were playing. Decided to make friends with the one who came to visit, but only after studiously examining the situation. Oh, and getting treats.
Started tracking exercises with treats in a nearby field. Learned the word 'track' very quickly and immediately drops her nose to the ground to see what she missed.
Decided dunking the tennis ball in the water bowl before bouncing it around the house was huge fun. Cannot understand why this upset mom. She obviously likes the mop.
Learned that ringing the bell hanging from the back door gets someone to open it for her. Very quickly learned to abuse this new knowledge.
Nearly turned the side table over as she careened underneath it in one of her sporadic 'come-aparts'. Too much energy, too much speed, not a good enough turning radius. It was time to clean the table off, anyway.
Knows 'sit'. Is learning 'wait' and 'down'. 'Wait' is hard.
Spends most of her naps sprawled on an air conditioner vent. Loves the cooler weather.
Adores playing in water. The inside water bowl is on restriction after a digging spree left an inch of water on the kitchen floor. Again. Both outside bowls are full and the water always tastes better if it is waded in first. And scooping water with your face is sheer joy.
