I haven't been on the board long, so I'm not sure what's been done recently (and I'm too lazy to check!).

But what about something like smiles, teeth or tongues?

All I can come up with is "back to school"...might be hard for people with lawless pets like hazel's! Obedience school drop outs!

How About "Animals Learning a Lesson"? Any old lesson will do : "leaves are fun to dive into", " a ball of string can roll all over the house" , "if I sit on your head and flap my wings it tickles your ears"...

I like the animals learning a lesson one too - if we do choose that one, perhaps if the lesson is not obvious we could just cheat and say what the lesson was....

or any other suggestions?

thx

marko

I prefer when members make the final decisions...it seems like animals learning lessons has some strong support...should we go with that?

Thx

Marko

Yup ! Since it really is Hazel's idea I've given her a heads-up in the TJT to start us off tomorrow (well, technically today )

If it lessons, keep in mind that most obedience schools are for dogs and not cats. Cats teach us, lol So let's be inclusive and take into consideration all the pets here.

Maybe it should be what my pet teaches us?

CK ~ hun ~ would you please read the at least some of the posts in a thread before you reply? The September Challenge is "Animals Learning Lessons". See the funny one "Lesson" posted by Hazel about Frenchy's Bailey as an example. This isn't about obedience school or even obedience and it is about pets not a specific type of animal ~ no one and no pet is excluded.

Cole taught himself this lesson (video)

Hmmm...I don't have any stills that come to mind that would fit. (Hey, I never said I had any pics! )

However, I just posted this video in Grace's thread before seeing this one--and it actually applies. Sorry, Frenchy...I know you won't be able to see it. :sad:

Anyway, just to give the rest of you some background--I use hand and voice signals when training. One day, I was working with Cole, hand-signal only, and messed up the "roll over" signal. I did it vertically instead of horizontally (you'll understand when you see the video).

The Sheriff cocked his head to the side, and thought about it a few seconds. "I'll invent my own trick!" he barked. And Cole's "dance" was born!

He invented it all on his own and is very proud of it, so don't laugh at him. That's hazel's job!

Without further ado, "Cole's trick": http://video.yahoo.com/video/play?vid=1059638

You'll notice that the two actions done by Cole are quite similar, but one is vertical and one is horizontal--just like the two hand signals! What a smart, logical boy that Sheriff is! (Handsome, too! )
