OK!




~ the poopoos waiting for the "OK!" to enjoy their afternoon treat...
~ this is about the only "trick" that they know...
~ we have tried "training" them to do other things like "rollover", "stand", "jump", "bang" (to play dead, haha) etc, etc... 
~ but after 4 yrs (for brownie the poopoo) and 2 yrs (for sugar the poopoo)... the only few things that they can barely do are: "sit", "hand hand", "down" and "ok!" (to wait until they hear "ok!" to start eating)....
~ and yes, their breed is supposed to be one of the top three smartest doggies in the world...
~ their success rate looks like this:
* sit:: 40% and the remaining 60% is about getting mixed up with "down"
* hand hand:: 50% and the other 50% is getting no response
* down:: 60% (higher success rate cos they are just too lazy and want to lie down) and 40% is about getting mixed up with "sit"
* ok!:: 90% (!!!  yeah... and really because they know it means food!)
~ i guess they are not really that silly cos at least when it comes to food, they know what to do....
~ i recall one doggie owner once said, "i don't really understand why ppl like to make their doggies do this and that... they are your companion, your friend. would you ever tell your wife/husband/friend to 'eat', 'rollover', 'hand hand'?? why can't ppl just leave their doggie friend alone, let them enjoy their life??".... and i sort of agree with that...

O was very good at training casey...he put a lot of time into it and said "she must do it!!" ~~

casey can sit, roll over, ching ching, down, and even jump through a hoop!! i am not sure she still remembers all these tricks though now that she doesn't live with us...
