I realize that videos like these can be difficult for those going through pregnancy loss or infertility. Know that I made this video with you guys on my heart. It’s strange to be celebrating this milestone and yet still grieving with those that are not yet here. You have been on my heart this week, friends.
This is the kickoff video for one of my goals for the Fall. I will put up the rest of the goals on the blog on Monday. Enjoy!
So, Saturday night, I started to not feel well. By Sunday afternoon, I was full on sick. I tried to go to work on Monday, but only lasted a few hours. Today, I’m feeling a bit better, but I’m still not 100%.
So for today’s post, Jerzee graciously allowed me to film her doing another of her “I understand people better than you think” tricks. She started doing this after we moved into this house, when I was still working from home. The first word she knew was toy, and then eventually she understood downstairs and upstairs as well. She is one smart cookie! (although I have to be careful saying the C-O-O-K-I-E word around her too)
Does your dog do any tricks that make them seem like they understand more than you realize?
I was outside in my front yard talking to my neighbor. I left the door to the house open, and all of the sudden my rat terrier, Jerzee, was standing right next to me. My neighbor was impressed at how well she just stood near me. I said it was because she knew where her cookies were coming from, but to be honest, Jerzee makes me look really good as a dog owner/trainer. She just understands a lot of things.
Well, my neighbor told me that I needed to record some of the tricks she does, so today I thought I would show you some of the first tricks she learned to do. I might do this from time to time in the future as well. A lot of her “tricks” are really just understanding words, but there are a few things she will do on command.
Anyway, without further ado, here is Jerzee the fire safety dog!
She has the coloring of a Dalmatian, do you think she could pass for one?
Does your dog do any quirky tricks?
