It has been a busy weekend and Misty has learnt two new commands, both in response to treats. The first was sheer fancy on my part: Paw…… but she gets a bit overenthusiastic and tries to give two paws at times. The second was Hush……this a necessity because of two evenings of fireworks in our near locality. It took half a packet of puppy mini-bones to learn the latter and she will no doubt have forgotten it before next year. Mind you, it could be a useful command at other times too. The only trouble is that she is so intelligent that she will work out that barking is a cue for the Hush Command and the subsequent treat.
Ah well, she has already sussed that with the C’mon, c’mon, c’mon……..
PS The C’mon commands have to be given in a high-pitched soprano, so Him Behind the Wheel nearly does himself a mischief trying to copy.
