I’m soooo proud!!
FREESHAPED (honest Bev! No luring or cheating!) this “trick” with him. Has taken me about 2 1/2 months!
The idea being that at some point he’ll be able to do my washing for me… now to work on the hoovering and other housework!
Started with putting a ball into a bucket, which took the longest time, then created the “washing machine”, and it took him minutes to get from there to … well, the video pretty much!
And yes, I know I’ve made plenty mistakes, but am just sooo pleased with him – and he’s soooo pleased with himself – watch that tail!
Also wanted Bev to see how we’d progressed!

Yay!! I made Bev stunned! If I achieve nothing else with him, that moment is enough!
Heel – yep can see that as a possibility… Jumping up? Defo need some Bev treatment for that one!March 10, 2009 at 8:47 am #79771
just watched the video – Justine that is AMAZING !!!!!! 🙂
i’m soooo happy for you !
i know what you mean about jumping up – i think the main problem is rafe is so darn gorgeous that u cannot help but cuddle him … even i fall for his charms and i know i’m not supposed to be doing it !!! 🙂
i am sure you could freeshape 4paws having seen him doing this 🙂

be suprised if we can free shape it to be honest..it too far down the line..think we going to have to cue the up so we can off swtich it with a no up cue…he no longer jumps up at me..if he can do it with me he can do it with anyone….
wont bring cubert ::) he has decided the best way to greet someone is to try and land on their head… ::) had started to work on it when i got back from mam’s…and then on sunday morning my younger sister came to visit…she threw herself on sofa giggling rolled into a ball and said ooo cubert you are so funny…that buggered that up…hubby came to pick her up and he launched himself onto david’s shoulders from the back of the sofa.. ::) have i got some serious work to do…just need the energy and a gag for maureen… >:D >:D
