Run Kat Run!

Here is me rollerblading with Dad. Dad says that I am the better skating partner because I am focused on just running while Steve wants to stop and smell (or pee on) every tree and bush he passes. I hope that means that I will get to go skating the most!

Run, Steve, Run!

Since the weather has been getting nicer, Dad sometimes takes us when he goes out on his rollerblades. It's really pretty fun. We have learned commands for mushing while running alongside Mom and Dad on their bikes, but with the rollerblades, we have more freedom to feel the wind blow through our fur.

Here is a video of my turn, and an interview with Dad and me at the end. Next Kat will post her turn! Of course, she was pretty vocal in this video about what she thinks about my turn.

Steve the multitasker

One day, I told Huffle about how Mom makes us do something every night before we get our supper and how sometimes I try to do everything I know in one motion so I can eat faster. Huffle asked to see my amazing multitasking skills, so without further ado, here I am.

It's pretty impressive, huh? I don't know why Mom doesn't recognize it as a talent. Instead, she just makes me keep trying until I do each thing one at a time. Apparently she hasn't learned much in all of those classes she takes at work about lean manufacturing principles!

Our new trick

We finally downloaded several videos from the video camera and we are going to share them with you in our next few posts.

First up, a new trick. We have been working hard learning some new tricks. Well, it might be more appropriate to say that I have been working hard. I have learned two new tricks and Steve has just learned one. I have decided that Steve might not be as smart as I am.

This is the trick that both of us have learned - SPIN! This video was taken right after we learned it. We are much better at it now. Mom doesn't have to make her hand signals as big and we can also do a synchronized spin. We'll have to get that on video soon.


PS. Next up is a video that we created from a special request from our pal, Huffle! Check out our next post.

Role Reversal

Sometimes I like to show my dad who is in charge and I sit on the couch and make him use the ottoman.

What do you do to show your parents who is really in charge?

I love my mom

Mother's Day is coming up in a few days and I suppose I could have saved this picture for then, but I'm not going to do so. I love my mom so much that I think any day is a good day to tell her that I love her. That's why I cuddled up with her on the couch.
I'm pretty sure she likes it when I cuddle. I mean, sure she said her arm went to sleep, but then I helped her with the sudoku on her iPhone, so I think all was forgiven.

PS. I have decided to take Jack a-Roo's (NACGCY) advice and just go by Steve with my friends and Steven Oliver, CGC when I need to impress and get steaks.
PPS. NACGCY stands for (according to Jack) Not a Canine Good Citizen Yet. I'm sure the only reason Jack is still NACGCY is because his mom is really struggling with the training. It's a pretty difficult test for humans.

I'm a good boy!

Breaking news! (Or a few days old news!)
I'm a Canine Good Citizen! I took my test on Thursday and passed. Dad says I'm now a CGB, Certified Good Boy. Don't worry though, I still don't listen to a word he says. He never hands out treats, so I have no reason to listen to him. Mom, on the other paw, is pretty sneaky with the treats. I can never tell when she's going to pull a piece of hotdog or cheese out of her pocket, so I try to listen to what she tells me to do and that's how I ended up being a CGC or CGB, whatever.

So what do you all think? Should I sign my name Steven Oliver, CGC or Steve, CGC or just Steve? I'll do all three for today. ;-)

Steven Oliver, CGC
Steve, CGC
