Day 75 of Firsts: Teach My Old Dog a New Trick

16 Mar

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. ~Roger Caras

Whoever said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks is just wrong. It doesn’t matter whether you are actually talking about dogs or people.

But for the purpose of today’s first, I taught my dog Angel a new trick.  She’s about 12 years old. I haven’t taught her a new trick since she was a puppy. (Everything she knows she learned in puppygarten)

Anyway, I found this trick online: How to teach your dog to “high-five”.   Check it out.

I think she got it.  Okay, maybe we need to work on that one a little.

But even dogs need to do a First every once in a while. I swear she looked a little younger and had a little more pep in her step.

Next week? Jumping through hoops. Not sure if that will be me or the dog.
