Emmy’s Tricks

Emmy has learned quite a few tricks in the three years we have had her. Some of these tricks include sitting, shaking hands, laying down, heeling, and jumping. I am most impressed with her ability to jump (although it causes a lot of trouble). She can jump over are high fence (probably ranging around 7-8 ft) on her first try! The problem is that she usually jumps over the fence to have some “free time” and run around the neighborhood. Infact, some people in our neighborhood joke around about her and call her “crazy dog.” It’s not that she is “crazy” it’s just funny seeing her run around with her tongue hanging out! 🙂

Miss “Mellow” Emmy

Wow. It’s really crazy when you think that 3 years ago, when I first blogged about my dog, Emmy, she was as wild as an angry bull. However, Emmy has toned down ( something I thought was nearly impossible). We have seen Emmy go through her ruff first months of adjusting to her new home, then seen her first second  and third birthday,as well as the crazy day when she ate a whole burrito AND pie crust.  Finally, we see her start to get mellow and mature ( which slightly annoys me).There are both good and bad things about her mellowing out, i’ll tell the bad things first,

BAD THINGS:

  1. Emmy will not act like super CRAZY, wild, funny Emmy anymore.       ( ok fine, that’s not totally true, but she will not act like that AS MUCH!)
  2. She will not bark as much. ( that’s half good, half bad) It’s mostly bad to me because her barking was kinda comforting.

 

GOOD THINGS:

 

  1. She won’t be hostile towards friends, or people she feels uncomfortable with. ( Seriously, a while ago someone came over, and she just wagged her tail, and didn’t bark a word!)
  2.  She is very sweet and loves to cuddle now!!!!! ( I mean she would cuddle before, but to tell the truth she was not as sweet!)
  3. She makes these cute little double chins when she gets sleepy, and it’s so cute! Her eyes get kinda droopy too! ( it creates this ” i’m a wise old man” kinda look!!!!

 

So, these are the pluses and minuses of Emmy’s adulthood! I hope you enjoyed this post, have a Happy New Year!
