LOL Jane, I'm sure she would decide that would be a wonderful time to put up her front.
Chrisanne, I sure think she will take to Delta. Probably mostly curious at first, but as Delta grows I'm sure that Dakota will love all the pulling of fur and grabbing of her tail, tugging on her ears, etc.
I'm sure that Dakota will be very good with her. Ben plays roughly with her and she just stares at him when he pokes her sides and tosses her around on the floor. Ben calls the moments like that (when he pokes and prods her, pulls her ears and yanks her tail "Baby Practice" to make sure she won't nip. What a tard. I always tell him to knock it off. Poor Kota!) For awhile I was concerned because Dakota was such a rambunctious pup, but she is really starting to calm down. (We've allowed her to stay out of her cage the past few times we've been away, and she is great!) Today Ben's cousin Joel came over and he commented on how much she was able to sit still. "Look, she's just standing there! She never used to do that!"
I'll keep pictures in mind next time I have a story... Actually I already have another one, but still no pics because I don't have my camera. Don't shoot me!
So yeah we're over at Cindy and Dan's house because they're outta town and have Central Air whereas at our place we don't even have a window air conditioner. So I take Dakota outside this morning before I fed her. There is this big spot of tall weeds and grass from where Dan and Cindy's pool used to be. Kota brought me her yuckie tennis ball and I tossed it in amid the weeds wondering if she'd find it. She hopped around in it like a rabbit for awhile, searching for it for about 5 minutes non stop. She eventually found it and brought it back to me all proud of herself. So now I'm doing the same thing like with the Frog, everytime she goes and searches for the ball in the weeds I tell her to "Find It!" A command that she's never quite gotten the grasp of... She'd always looked at me like, "Well give it to me." Like what I wanted her find was in my hands when it was actually in another room. So once she got the hang of that (on her own) I made her "Go Around" (another thing she basically taught herself and I put a command to) so she circles around me to my left and I put her in a sit, stay, which is hard for her to stay in once I toss the ball into the weeds. She jerks her body like she temporarily forgets what I said about staying, but doesn't budge from where her butt is planted on the ground.
I wait a minute and then send her off running after it, with "Good girl, go find your ball!!!"
I swear I could have a SAR dog in the making! LOL
I will have to take pictures of her doing this sometime. Its neat.
