I know, I know, I haven’t updated you with how amazing Talulah is taking on new tricks. Well, here’s your update, so you can SHUT UP!
One great trick that Tina taught her is “High Five.” When we throw the ball for her to fetch, you say, “High five!” when she’s on her way back, and she runs close to you and let’s you stroke her coat as she runs past. I swear to you this is a trick. Otherwise, she will not run close to you.
We also have her catching balls in the air. She’s getting really good at it. I threw a ball much higher than the train tracks yesterday, and she caught it no problem. Other times, she’ll let it bounce.
And thirdly, her new trick is jumping through a hoolahoop. We thought this would be a piece of cake, but Talulah was afraid of the hoolahoop at first. We’ve had to get her more and more accustomed to it, and finally, she is doing this:
She still has work to do, but it’s a far cry from where she was last week.
She’s our smart little chicken.
