Look, I’m blogging again, only after a few weeks, not months! So, it’s been a few weeks since Amy got her new car, which I have dubbed, Mango’s Mini The original plan was that we would use a plastic crate that Amy had bought years ago off of Craigslist and has been kept at her parents’ house. As it turns out, that crate was too big so Amy and David had to buy a slightly smaller one that would actually fit in my Mini. While this crate fits perfectly in the car, it’s a bit smaller than I’m used to and is just one way to demonstrate how different Razz and I can be. Here I am in my new crate, I barely fit right?
And even though she’s probably slightly bigger than I am, here is Razz in the exact same crate!
See, she likes to squeeze herself into tight little spots, whereas I need my space and need to spread out. Sometimes, though we are more alike than we’d like to admit, like sometimes we like to sit in exact opposites.
And here we are again.
While we are both different in many ways, Amy likes to get us matching things. Like, here are our new tags. Anyone who knows Amy, knows that she LOVES cupcakes and she is super excited about these tags.
Here I am with mine.
And Razz with hers.
Speaking of cupcakes, Amy made some blueberry cupcakes today. She made some mini ones and Razz and I got to sample some. Um, can I have it now? And yes, that is a cupcake apron she’s wearing, see, I told you!
Oh, while we’re on the subject of food and treats. I forgot to mention in my last post that at the flyball tournament in York in June, Amy won a raffle prize! It’s a Manners Minder!
It’s a remote controlled treat dispenser, Amy first heard about it at a dog trainers seminar featuring Dr. Sophia Yin, a really well known trainer and vet. Here’s Razz, doing her best to pose like the border collie on the box.
Amy and David put our kibble in it and when we perform a behavior that they’re looking for (in Razz’s case it was targeting their hands, in my case, being quiet and calm in a down with my head on the floor), they hit a button on the remote and the Manners Minder drops some food and we eat it!
Here I am practicing my behavior, which is hard because I get so excited about getting treats!
Okay, it’s been a long post, I for one am pooped AND hot! It’s so hot outside these days, I’ll just chill out on top of the AC vent. Till next time!
