I grew up with a house full of pets. LOL
Then I worked part time for 4 years at a veterinarian clinic while in high school, so our house was sorta like a foster home until we found a place
for the dogs/cats...oh and possums too [my sister worked there also]
When I trained him, I used hand signals as well so I hardly ever had to say anything, he just knew
Now my husband has this look that when he gave it to our boy, he would instantly drop to the ground
I never acquired that trick.....*shakes head*
And our lab was so obsessed with baseballs, we swore he was a reincarnated baseball player!!
The one before that, another lab, was more of a tug of war guy. However he did like playing with racquet balls --the blue squeezable ones-- they
He could get 3 in his mouth at one time. I worried he was going to choke on one
But since our work causes us to travel & we live in a 5th wheel travel trailer, we limit the number of pets to 1
Right now, it's zero but I'm hinting big time!!
Yep, animals love you unconditionally
