Huck's Vocabulary

Huckleberry has quite an extensive vocabulary for an almost 6 month old {gasp!} pup.
Some of his favorite words are
Treat (obviously)
Get it 
{Not fetch. He looks at me like I'm an alien when I say fetch.}
Shake
Outside
and Ice.
{We let Huck eat ice..he loves it.}

Thankfully, he now also knows the commands
Sit
Lay Down
Stay
Come
Go Potty
Leave it
{Whether he chooses to acknowledge that one depends on his mood.}
and Let's Go.

Ice and let's go are my favorites. He's soooo cute when he hears these words.
Let's go simply means let's walk side by side. But Huck can anticipate when I'm going to say it and his excitement makes me laugh. Ice is cute too. Whenever he hears the word he runs to the freezer and sits beside it until we give him an ice cube.
He looks so expectant waiting for what command I'm about to say!
Love, love, love this pup!

Sasha is his twin! She loves, loves, loves ice. When I put her in her crate, I point and say "inside crate" then she gets her ice. We give it to her any other time she gives us those puppy eyes, too!
Leave it: eh...she is not a fan of that one, but usually gives in. ;) Like Huck, she makes me laugh daily.
Lately, her favorite is to watch tv. She sits at the coffee table, rests her head on the table top and just stares. Ha!

God gives us pets to bring us smiles, I am convinced!

He's so cute! I just had a dog behaviorist come to my house last week so I could begin to wrangle my two fur children. We're still working on the commands part haha

I hope this isn't crossing the line.

But.

Can I have him? Totally appropriate, right?

Ok. Thanks.

He's so cute!! I love teaching dogs tricks/commands. With my maltipoo I hold my hand like a gun and saw bang and he falls down and rolls on his back! Loved teaching him that!! :)

Shannon said...
