Going Through The Paces

A couple of years ago, Mr. Taleteller and Blueberry went through beginning obedience class -- twice.  They failed graduation night both times because of errors on my husband's part.  Still, Blueberry really enjoys the "game" of obedience.  They don't practice all the time, but on occasion they go through the paces to keep her refreshed.

It gets even more entertaining when Bunny decides that she has to join in.  She loves obedience, loves treats and loves attention.  She just can't help herself!  She has to join in. 

The other night, Mr. Taleteller got out some treats that Blueberry finds irresistible for some reason.  It was a good break from the winter doldroms for my husband and for the girls.  It was also a good giggle for me.  Blueberry always starts out serious and then gets sillier and sillier.  Even my husband can't stay serious with her once she gets going.

Don't let anybody tell you that greyhounds can't do obedience!  Just know that they'll do it when they want, how they want, and in their own sweet time!

  1. This is great! I did obediance with a few of my hounds...and we actually *did* graduate, however, that was pretty much the end of the whole thing. At least you all are still working on it from time to time.

    Pretty funny though, hounds are just so silly sometimes. :) Thanks for sharing...I loved it.

  2. The things we hounds have to go through just to get a treat!
    One day, when we take over the world, we will have a training programme for these humans!
    love and kisses

  8. Brilliant!!! Hippie 'sits', lies down,rolls over and shakes paws and stuff but can we get her to 'stay'? No way!!!

  9. Hey Blueberry and Bunny you did a super job of re-training your two legger. See THEY can be taught. You just have to get beyond their stubborn streak. Yours shows grrrrreat promise. I'm just sayin'.

  10. I don't know about these things called classes. I just do waht Gramma tells me and if I am good she rewards me. Is that obedience? We might have to go find that dictionary.....

  11. LOL! TOO CUTE! Thank you for the giggles this morning! They are both beautiful girls but that Blue is comical! :o)
