OMG, you totally make me want to have another Boston Terrier!! Mine was a wreck of a separation anxiety mess and my husband is scared of getting another one, but I am definitely warming up after seeing your little angels!! I should forward my husband this post – “See honey, they make them in *non-crazy* flavors too!!” =)

Thanks for the smile this morning. My black lab used to do all kinds of tricks now I wish I would have captured them darn it. She is almost 14 now and because of arthritis she can’t do them any more.

He is such a gorgeous pup! btw. “Leave it” should be the one trick that every dog owner should know. It has saved my puppies from eating harmful things. I love “Leave it!”.

Great pics – Do you have any tips for catching him mid trick? Our dog does some great tricks, but it’s hard to catch her doing them in a single frame.

Love. I got a big kick out of the fact that you also have two different commands for which paw Howie gives you. My mom taught Zoe, our border collie, that “Shake” is her right paw, “High Five” is her left {opposite of the way Howie’s got it down}. Zoe also “Roll”s to the right, “Butter” {the complement to Roll, right? *grins*} to the left.

I love this post. Every time there’s a doggy post, I get so excited. Thanks for sharing!
