Let's Try This Again!! OuterSpace ~ George & How to Jump

We were visiting Bogart Handsome Devil's blog today and he and his mommy, Miss Lulu, showed a picture that they are having sent into outer space on the Discovery space shuttle in September. It was such a cool post and we wanted to join them flying into outer space, so we went to the site and signed on too. Unfortunately our mommy failed to make a copy of our blast off photo. Not sure if it's lost forever, but at least we were confirmed that we'll be up there with Bogie, Lulu and who knows who else. All the info is over at Bogie's blog if your interested. It is soooo cool!!

Also, we met a new fellow Welshie today. His name is George and he is adorable, as all Welshies are! He's pretty new to the blogusphere so let's show him a friendly welcome! He'd probably appreciate meeting some of you awesome pooches.

Finally, as you know, Hootie went to obedience class with 2 main goals. 1-Learning to stop jumping up on everyone and 2-to stop pulling when on leash. He is still practicing to heel and mommy will continue to work with him with yummy treats. As far as the jumping, here is what Mikkel has Mommy doing: When Hootie jumps on her she says, "Oh no,too bad" and then gives him a time out by putting him in the bathroom for 30 seconds. Then when she goes to get him out she first makes him sit, then gives him his release words,"that will do." He has caught on & sometimes runs away as soon as he hears "Oh no". Smart guy!! Anyway, now we have to show you a new trick that Hootie's trainer, Mikkel, taught him. She told mommy that some dogs just like to jump. So, to encourage orchestrated jumping, as apposed to unwanted jumping up on a person as a "greeting" she taught Hootie how to do "The Shamu". Mommy taught me (BabyRD) how to do it in 3 (YeS 3!) tries. Enjoy the following videos buddies & please try to ignore Mom's slob outfit...Keep On Truckin'?? Puhleeze Mommy! Ah well, a product of the 60's. sigh.

love, Baby Rocket Dog

That Shamu thing. Gail was watching the videos with what looked like more than just academic interest. Could it possibly have something to do with my jumping up all over people habit! Well done you, I say, for figuring out a way of getting extra treats when you jump on humans!
Toodle pip!

Maggie and Mitch said...

Did you hear our applause, guys? Great shamu's for both of you!
We've met George! He's very cool and very handsome!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

PS - Do you think Mom could teach us a quadruple Shamu? How many treats would that take!!!

Mango said...

Thanks for the training tips. My idiot brother still jumps around like a pogo stick and pulls on the leash. Of course he doesn't do that when he is at school. I don't know about that shamu thing. We'll try it out.

Very smart babies! BRD is so much bigger than Hootie.

I luv the way she watched the feeding hand and flopped over in her video....

Remington said...

Good job!

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh well done! Your mom is coming along a treat! Pardon the pun.......!
We loved the way you had her trained to run back every time and turn the camera off - that is not easy for humans to learn.
You guys are stars!!!
Love you lots

Hi Baby R and Hootie
First off , congrats I tipped my furry ears to Hootie for graduating. I for some reason still have to take classes and I always jump... and tackle people. I might have to try your tricks...

Cassie said...

I want to tell you that Hootie's jumping up unwanted is a continual thing. I keep working with him, but it may be forever!! [[sigh]]

Sally Ann said...

Y'all are very good at jumping, and you get treats to jump. Lucky, I think I'll talk to Mommy about that for me and my baby brother.

BRUTUS said...

Bravo! Oh, Baby RD, you had us laughing in that video - staring at the treat in mom's hand then flopping on the floor! BOL!! I do a version of the shamu as well, blasting off the floor all the way up into mom's arms (or hitting her in the chest with my head if she's not expecting me to do it). And guess what - Flat Brutus is at Mayzie's now, so you should have him by late next week!
