Hi, everyone! I know a person or two requested that I post a picture of Sadie with the Pony. I'm trying to accumulate a bunch of Pony-pictures and make a big post of the cuteness. That'll be in a couple of days. Right now I need your input!

Sadie is going to puppy training at PetSmart. We were assigned homework tonight. The trainer asked us to teach our dogs a trick for next week's class. Do you guys have any tricks that you've taught your dogs? I'm not sure if I can teach Sadie any difficult or complicated tricks, but maybe something simple would be nice!

I appreciate your help and I am always praying for the sick or unhealthy dogs I hear about in the community! I hope you're all doing well!

Teach her to "Sit Pretty!" It's pretty easy and super cute!
Get her to sit and then give you a paw. Set one paw on your arm and then take her other paw. You'll be holding up her paws on your arm as she sits. Now give her a treat as you say "Sit Pretty!" Take your arm away slowly (one paw at a time) until she does it herself! Now whenever my dogs see treats they just "sit pretty" automatically! It's adorable.

Oh duh I read that wrong so deleted my first. Sit is by far the easiest and best trick/command they should know. But I would imagine they already started that one on day one of class? Stay is the next best one to learn. Other then the basic stuff they teach in obedience school my dog is basically short bused.

I love your icon!
We learned the basics in class already like sit, down, stay, come etc.

Emo learned sit and high five after she learned sit.
