sitting pretty

One of the tricks we taught Coraline is to sit pretty, or sit up balanced on her back legs.

Brodie sitting and Coraline sitting pretty waiting for treats

This photo isn’t great, but it shows her sitting pretty, waiting for a treat from Karl. Brodie is way too beefy to do this trick (also possibly too old to learn it) so he is only asked to sit for his treat (we don’t really have to ask – he knows that sitting is his way of saying please). Coraline is also good at walking around on her back legs when she thinks she could be getting a treat, but she needs to be in the right mood and it’s challenging to photograph.

Also, yes, that is a Boston Terrier-shaped hook on the wall holding all the leashes and Coraline’s car harness. We are BT-addicted.
