CGC and more

I told Jen (our clicker trainer) that she is not allowed to laugh while reading this blog, because as a proud greyhound mom, I'm about to brag on my boy.  ;)  Yesterday was the last day of clicker training, which was sad, because Cody and I have really enjoyed it!  As part of the last class, the hounds were tested for the AKC Canine Good Citizen program.  Cody passed with flying colors!!  Jen even suggested that I compete with him in obedience or rally...something I had never even considered, but am seriously thinking about now.  He really does seem to enjoy doing the commands.  I'm not sure if it's because he wants to please me, or if it's because he gets treats as a reward.  lol

The girls, who spend much of their day cozying up on the guest bed upstairs, have learned to come downstairs when they hear the clicker because Cody is getting food and they might be able to guilt me into giving them treats as well.  In one instance, as I held the treats behind my back while practicing with Cody, Callie came around behind me and STOLE MY TREATS!  Silly girl...she's a smart one!  See how Tiny has her arm draped over Callie?  They are ALWAYS snuggling with each other.  Too sweet.

Yesterday was a beautiful day and the gang decided to take in the nice weather.  Let's play a game of 'Where's Waldo?' although, this would need to be 'Where's Tiny?'. 
Do you see her???  If you guessed that she's laying underneath Cody in order to get some shade, you were right!  Get yourself a prize. =)  You may be wondering why Cody is muzzled.  You probably remember from a previous post that Cody had to be rushed to the vet only to find that his belly was full of rocks.  His muzzle now has a poop guard to prevent him from eating the birdseed, rocks, and dirt.

And last, but not least, I thought you guys would enjoy seeing my alarm clock.  It's rather annoying, but it gets the job done!  Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

  1. Eeek. That alarm clock reminds of the sand creature in the Star Wars movie. The one in the middle of the desert that Jabba the Hut tries to have everyone thrown into. (I realize I may be dating myself here...).
