My favorite thing Maggie does is when I have a day off to sleep and she lets out a slow sigh as she stretches and snuggles closer to me.

Yukon has started doing this great thing (I like it anyways and I've had dogs in the past that do it) If we are on a walk or anywhere that we could come in contact with a stranger and we stop to talk etc, in a completely passive way, he positions himself between me and the unfamiliar person :-) It makes me smile and feel comfortable too. People comment on him doing that and I just say "He's just letting you know who I belong to" :-)

Aww Yukon does that! And he'll look at me through the corner of his eye until I release him. He's so cute when he is completely still as I'm saying, "You dead, boy? What happened? Where's Yukon?" HAHA

I taught Yukon with a clicker and positive reinforcement.

Cute! I also used a clicker, and now I am trying to wait until her tail wags before clicking and treating. I want to make the tail wag part of the trick because we all like it so much.

Just about everything he does is my favorite thing and what I find to be amazing is with time some of my least favorite things he does looking back always seem to bring a smile.

Thinking back I loved everything Mick did. But 2 of my all time favorites were when I was doing little projects on my house I would put my tool belt on him and he would prance around so proud that he was my helper. Didn't bother me at all that he gnawed on the handle of my Plum hammer.The 2nd was he would start howling when I played my soprano sax. We were never harmonized in the same key but he thought it was beautiful music.Good times!

Tucker has a little dance he does when we come home. He runs 1/2 way thru your legs so you can scratch just at the base of his tail. When you do, he dances with his hind legs and will jump his rear end up and down. It is the funniest thing!
