Now that is laser focused with extraordinarily  quick reflexes!!  Good job pretty girl!!

Hmmm...I think Nellie may have just challenged some other hounds and cats.....

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

OMC, thats amazingly quick.smiley10 Impressive!!!  Whoo hoo NELLIE !!!smiley_clapsmiley_clapsmiley_clap I can't wait to see what's next & the time required to learn;) 

I had my eyes dilated yesterday and was out of commission 🕶️🤓 for 6 hours. 

LOL, JUNO, I know it's not so funny at the time, likely. Yea, I can recall many in the puppy stages. She destroyed our mattress, many shoes, makeup brushes, pens, and rugs. She despised being left alone for ANY time; she jumped out of her containment. It's incredible what a puppy can do in an hour. And the boys (cats) raiding all the cupboards for Q-tips, their food (all cabinets have childproof locks now), chewing electric cords, Saxton climbing the log beams in the family, and FALLING!! Thank heavens on ME & the sofa !! Purrkins jumped on the HOT stove and burned his little paw (the one he still has), Ending up at the vet and on antibiotics. Oh, the stories & memories..💝

I was hoping Karen and Elly would be participating. Karen/Krun. I KNOW Elly has tricks up her paws;)

 Anyone can participate, and Anything GOES.

Nellie - such power, such experience. Clearly a skill honed over many kernels! 🍿 (I love a good popcorn night!) I also love the hearty CHOMP with each catch!!

Holly - OMD! OMC! Your puppy/kitten years were quite lively! Hot dang! We’re in it for the adventure, right! 🤣🤣🤣

LOL Nellie says "THANKS! WOOF!" And that wasn't even her fastest or longest session. She would do it for a lot longer if we let her stuff her face with popcorn, even if it is low cal without salt or butter. I know, what's the fun in that right? 

Glad you are back Holly, hope you passed that test with flying colors. That part of the eye exam is the worst!

She is impressive. I think there is some record Nellie beats 🏆🍿🥇

If you want to cut right to -1:19 ish in the video:)

Fastest time to catch 10 items by a dog

Thank you!!!

It is the worst!!! And to drive home solo is not the best idea. 🦯🕶️🤓 It was a beautiful sunny day but not the best day for such. Im GREAT for now. Eye health is 100%, but we are watching age-related cataracts in both eyes. Nothing is needed now other than my readers and hopefully for many years. We have a family history of cataracts and macular degeneration, so I go every year and HOPE.🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Well, I don't have anything new recorded.  I've been mostly working on basic skills with the new hooligan Callie.  Callie has learned a few tricks but I haven't recorded anything yet.  I'll try and get a synchronize Pug Mutt video soon.  In the meantime this video is from Elly's second birthday...she will be 9 in December!

Spinny Elly! LOVED seeing you do your thing so many years agosmiley_clap I cannot even believe you are turning nine. WOW! Where did the time go? Are you having fun watching Callie do goofy puppy things? Now it's your turn to kick back and watch the kiddos!

And as for the Leonberger girl, WOW! I didn't even know there was such a thing as a record for catching treats. Nellie is going to have to break that one, I'm pretty sure she can do it. Where's her agent?!

WAIT!!!   HOLD UP!!!  I didn know this was open to trained professionals!😱

Surely you and Ely are Holluwood bound as you have clearly  excelled beyond amateur status.  Perhaps you two should be on "America`a  Got Talent ".  Her expertise combined with her tripawdness, rescue dawg.....they would love her on their show!

One of my fav tricks of Elly's....rolling on her vack, all four paws in the air.  Cannot even begin to imagine the skill you have, the skill she has, to learn all these tricks.  Truly brilliant!

In the mean though I guess the "rest" of is shall aspire to master some of Elly's skill. 

Karen, I've always been in awe of you on so many levels  for a variety of reasons.   The love and bond you have with ALL your pups, past and present, at the top of the list....and the care you provided your Dad♥️

Okay Callie, you're  io next!  And bloopers are acceptable!

Hugs

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

PS.  Holly, glad everything checked out with your eyes AND glad uou made it home safely!

It was a hoot reading about Saxton and Purrkins and their 'antics"....even though they scared the heck out of you.  Yes, what the puppy could do in an hour is unbelievable.   Being a cute puppy excuses  all misbehaving  though.

I agree, no comparison, but thats the fun of anything goes. 😁 Seeing everyone do anything, tricks or talent, and trying that's all it takes. We will sit in the audience cheering for America's Got Talent Elly, Juno, Nellie, Myrtle and Frankie 😉

I didn't time Nellie, but by appearance, hers looks faster to my untrained eye.

Natalie, yes, they all kept me on my toes & one still does. Elly does nose work, too fyi.

Thanks, Sally 🫂😘, and yes, it scared us to death many times !! My post was to say the log beam in the family room.🙄

Terrible picture, but yes, I was freaking out about how on earth am I going to get Saxton down, and there was no need he lost his balance and came down.

Geez Holly!  That sure was a scary "trick" Saxton played on you.  He didn't lose his balance, that was the way he planned for his exit off the beam  to happen!😎

 

Okay......in my humble  opinion, Frankie just may have to turn professional with this outstanding trick

Frankie!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Priceless!!!!!!!! (Your exhaled laugh at the end says it all, Sally!)

OMD, Elly - such great stuff!!! And all by the ripe age of 2!! Brilliant.

And Elly does nosework?? I’m planning to sign June up for a class in the New Year. I’ve been intending to for years, and there’s no time like the present to finally do it!

Holly, great pic of Saxton. Amazing you had the presence of mind to take it! Saxton: …and yeah…about the exit - totally mean to do that!smiley16

@jerry - Nellie could totally go for the record! Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it!!!

June and I are going to have to bust out the camera and film her skills. This thread is really hotting up some great talent! (…intentional or not!)

Yes, why not!!! She will be MORE in the limelight;)🎬

This pic was not the first time Mr Saxton pulled this & the time he planned his escape;) It was his last; it scared him enough not to attempt again. Plus, as the boys grew, they could no longer fit through the rails to get to that log beam.  

June and I are going to have to bust out the camera and film her skills. This thread is really hotting up some great talent! (…intentional or not!)

Yes, you will have to!! We are a work in progress will see how we do;)
