Take A Nap Trick

Snoooooooring away...

Hi there guys! Sorry that I was MIA for about a week. A LOT has been going on! No, I'm fine & my poop is back to normal again. But my hoomans are in a lot of stress right now hence, could not find time to help me blog. I had to change my blog URL becoz this crackpot has been harassing my blog & was leaving very mean messages in my cbox...

Anyway, remember last month I mentioned that I was learning my new tric
k? Well, I sort of like mastered it but mommy is happy with my progress now. Mommy is also finding time to work on my OB & Agility for the upcoming dog event but she seems to be quite "busy" nowadays with her new job... Anyway, here's my new trick!

Hope you liked it! It took some time for me to get the idea of picking that blanke
t up & holding it till I lay flat on the floor. As most of you know, I HATE holding stuff in my mouth especially stuff that are not round & bouncy. So hence, I hate retrieving. Heehee!

Oh by the way, mommy has started using the clicker again after reading an article in Diesel's blog. I am more responsive now & my tail wags whenever my mommy uses the clicker. I can't wait for the next command everytime!

I have to hold it till mommy releases me by clicking the clicker.

Hey, who switched off the lights?!

Hehehe! Have a great weekend guys. I hope my hoomans can solve this problem soon coz I don't like to see them stressed & upset. We can sense when they're not happy...

You are so smart, Amber! And you look so cute covering yourself!
We love your mom's sweet voice! Does she ever get mad?!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Daisy said...

I found you again!

Amber, you are a genius. I would never be able to do a trick so hard as "Take a Nap". You did it correctly every single time. Your mom has the perfect encouraging voice to learn tricks to, also.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Amber!
I hope that whatever is causing stress to you family is solved soon! I know you will be helping them with that!
I like your new trick! You are soooo good!
Where is your mom working??
Have a great weekend!
Kisses and hugs

CoCo said...

Amber Mae!!! Thank goodness I found your bloggie again. I was getting worried! I'm sorry that your family is stressed. I hope all the stress will be relieved soon.

That is a super cool trick! You are a genius. My Mama uses the clicker to train me too. She finds it very effective. I'm just super excited that after the clicker sounds, I will get a yummy reward. That is all that I'm looking forward to.

I'm glad that you are still blogging!

Your just so SMART..I love your new trick. Mommy covers me up with my blankie when she sees me in a ball trying to stay warm I have a feeling she might try to teach me to cover myself up after seeing your new trick. So you like the clicker? Maybe Mommy should try that on me. She is going to start taking me to a differnt OB trining place since I was to happy with the last place. The trainer lady didn't take any time to get to know me or the other doggies and plus there was way too many in one class. She found a really nice place and might start me off with private training lessons one on one and work on what I need to work on the most. Do you have any suggestions I can tell Mommy? Or is it okay to update your blog linkie on my blog or do you want me to wait for a while till that creepy person doesn't bother you anymore. I hope it all works out very soon and you all get that doggie back really soon!!

Kisses & Licks,

BrandytheGreat said...

Aww, cute trick Amber! Btw, are you sure you want me to change your bloggy add in my links?

Joe Stains said...

sorry you had to move your blog, but we updated our bloglines!

parlance said...

Anber-Mae, I was so worried when I went to do my daily check of your blog at the old address, but then I realised your mum had been around today commenting on others' blogs so I followed a link and now I've found you again.
I hope your humans are able to work out the stress that is a problem for them.
Your trick is amazing because it involves so many little parts. It shows that your mum is a patient trainer and that you are smart.
I'm off to look at what Diesel said about clickers, now. I have given up the clicker for a marker-word these last months, so maybe I should go back.

I'm glad your old archives have come over to your new address! I often check back to look at things you've posted in the past.

Amazing! What's up with the humans that you have to do things 500 times in a row? I think you got it right the first time.

What a great new trick Amber Mae! We are all quite impressed as mom and dad have never been able to teach us anything. We however have trained them completely...hee hee. We just stopped by to thank you for your kind words about our brother Fritzy's passing. We were very touched. Have fun with your training.

Amber said...

Cool trick Amber mae! Your mom is creative. Mom have not thouht of cliker. I'm sure it does help with the training. There some dog tricks mom saw in Youtube, that really amazing.

Hey, Amber. I haven't forgotten you, girlie!

So glad your poop is better, and that you're loving life in a clicker household.

Is this your old or new url? I'll have to go back to check the one you left on my blog!

Hope everything with the crackpot works out. You crack me up!

Goober love & smooches,

I was wondering what happened to your blog when I went into the old one. Didn't see you there except a post by a guy.

That's so cool, Amber Mae! You are so clever!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Whoa...what a clever girl you are...ur gonna be stuffed by the time you get your nappie....Honestly, Amber, you are the smartest dog we know....too bad Scruffy didn't get 1/100th of ur brain when he was born...

Poor Scruffy.

Barkin' at ya...

Good evening amber.
It was ..amber.. vulnerable.
It is a thing waking in a bad mood.
However, it hides oneself in the futon well. :)

Hammer said...

Hi Amber Mae
It is terrible that horrible hooman is causing your mum so much stress. We hope he has gone away now that you have changed your blog URL.
I laughed watching your video. There is no way I would do this for my mum even for treats .. I'd tell her to go take a nap. You are very smart and very obedient too. If mum had treats, I'd knock her over take the treats and then throw the blanket over her head .. hehehe.
Hope you and Chloe and Faith and your mum have a happy time over Easter.
Love from Hammer

Agatha and Archie said...

You are THE smartest pup we know!!! PL2 says she wishes you would rub off on us but we don't know what that meansLove SA+A

Bella said...

I hope those nasty people are all gone now.
You sure are a very clever girl - I love seeing your tricks

Maya and Kena said...

Hey Amber-Mae!!
Finally!! We found you! That person who was leaving mean messages must have been messed up... how can people be so stupid sometimes?!? When we tried to go to your blog before, it took us to a blog with a post about someone looking fur a soul mate... and then in the comments there were other doggies looking fur you too!! We're so happy we can see your blog again!!
That's a really neat trick! You look so cute!!!
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

Comet and BLU said...

You are very smart to do that trick. You look very cute too. But after I had the covers on, I would take a real nap.

Miss Lucy said...

I told ma that you had a great blog and suggested she give you an award. Check it out!

Saint Lover said...

I dont know where all my comments went on your blog :( I hope you dont think I haven't been reading it.

What a great trick for Amber to tuck herself into bed... so cute
