  7. Aw...thank you so much for the award, Darwin - am honoured!! :-)

    By the way, I LOVED the photo of you holding your Easter card - SO cute! And Hsin-Yi was so impressed coz she's been trying to train me to hold things like that for ages but I'm not very good - I tend to only like to hold soft things, like stuffies!

    For the games - have your humans tried the "Scavenger Hunt" game around the house? Hsin-Yi used to play this with me a lot when I was younger. She would ask me to wait in one room (eg, bedroom) - good practise of the Wait or Stay command! - while she went and hid treats in various places around the house - and then she'd come back and release me ("OK!") and then tell me to look for the treats. I;d have to use my nose and i'd get really tired doing this. In the beginning, they put the treats in easy places until I got the hang of the game - but then they started making it more difficulty, like putting treats higher up (not at ground level) and behind cushions and things - it was great! I love this game, although in my case, the only problem was I slobbered and left slimey drool everywhere I went looking - so my humans had a big clean-up after me - but maybe you don't slobber as much as I do! Anyway, if you havent' tried this game - tell you humans to give it a try! Great for keeping a puppy busy and low impact and gives the brain a workout too! (if you're on dry kibble, they could use part of your dinner for this game).
