Earning My Keep!!!

Hello my Blog Buddies!!! Sorry for not updating my blog sooner. My Mama has been too busy and have been neglecting to help me get my barks out! Needless to say...I've been busy too. I have finally MASTERED the "hide your eye" trick. I finally decided to cooperate and my Mama got her wish. I had to work very hard, because my Mama would not accept anything less than my Paw over my whole muzzle. Of course, I was well rewarded if I did it correctly!!!

Now, my new task of business is to learn how to "take a bow." I do not like this trick at all!
I have to keep my front paws on the floor, my rear end in the air and it feels funny! My Mama is on a mission in keeping me busy.
Who said that a "pet" doesn't have to work for a bite to eat! I am definitely earning my keep!

Coco, you are so talented! I have been trying to teach the pugs "out" lately - so when I say "out" they immediately leave the room they are in (this is for emergency fart situations) - anyways, they are not picking up on it so fast. I need more patience like your momma obviously has.

I've been earning my keep too. Now you've just made my human start teaching me how to hide my eyes. I already know how to bow. I actually like bowing. But I don't know if I'll enjoy the "hide your eyes trick"...

That video is very cute though! You can do this trick wonderfully!

Aww Coco! You are such a good listener and very smart. You look adorable when you hide your eyes...I think I'm starting to get a little crush!

Sniffs and licks,

Wow Coco I am so impressed! You must have been working really hard! I don't do the hide your eyes trick.. or the take a bow trick.. in fact come to think of it I don't really do tricks at all, then again I am incredibly lazy and it looks like such hard work!

love and tailwags,
