Merry Myrtle taught herself this trick all on her own! So cute! DROOLING!!

I’ve now added a “command” to it because I like to see her do this a lot….a whole lot! You’ll see the “technique I use at the end of the video.
Not a well lot video, but I think you can see the drool sparkle a little. I want to add this is just “miniature” drool.

Merry Myrtle drooling on command:

But WAIT!!! There’s more!! Can you so this Ollie? Can you drool on command on the floor AND into my tennis shoes at the same time!! I’ll be a little more careful where she does that trick next time!

I guess we will have to take the camera to the bank next time…or maybe to the dump! Ollie can make a pretty impressive puddle when a drive up window is involved. SNORT!

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

Ok, Myrtle. I guess you have the lead in the drool department. But, but, but…can you carefully empty out all the slippers in the closet? Dad left the door open.

A total of 13 trips to the closet.

OH OLLIEEEEE!!!! I just adore you!!!! You are the sweetest, cutest thing evrr!

Look how proud…look how gentle!! And what’s extra cute, is you really look like you are on a mission to make sure you rid that closet of thise darn pesky slippers!!

Hmmm….not sure we can compete with that…..but we’ll be working on something for our next “trick”, that’s for sure.

If your next video is Ollie RETURNING these to the closet, you need ro get rhis dog an Agent! Actually, I think he’s ready for one now!!
Sooooo much fun seeing Ollie being Ollie!!

Thanks for the laughs!!! You make this place fun!! 🙂

WOW! He is one talented pup!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Thirteen trips?  Did he miss one?  Did he carry two on one trip?

Elly takes my slippers out of my bedroom, but she does not stack them so neatly!

Ollie has a skill set just asking to be expanded!  Fetching adult beverages perhaps?

Wait a minute, how many slippers do you guys have?

13 trips is 7 pairs….or if he is doubling up each time it could be 26 pairs!

We each have several pair…slipper hoarders. Once I break in a pair, I just can’t bear to part with it. Some are lightweight summer ones and some (like the one in the video) are fur lined winter ones. And yes, he did bring them out one at a time. We usually keep the door closed, as he is particularly fond of the bear claw ones. He never chews them, but does love to play keep away. We just wanted to see what he would do if we just kept taking them and putting them on the couch. Now we know.

Our first Golden, Sam, would fetch adult beverages…and girls. He took them by the arm and gently led them upstairs and put them on the bed. Garry called him man’s best friend. I broke him of that little trick when Garry and I got married. big-grin Oh yes, he would go in the river in the winter time to fetch ducks, too.

Now if you tell us Sam lit his cigarette for him “afterwards”…………way-cool

LOL! I think this was actually a trick that Sam figured out all on his own. No wonder he was called Mighty Manfred the Wonder Dog.

OK this is adorable.

My Zeus gathers his toys up in one place (i think he is herding them), but it is not nearly as methodical as this!

Well here are a few pictures of Zeus 🙂 As you can see, he is a deprived child and he never has anything to play with.
