I wanted to try to do a pictorial of our vaca with Rita to Cambria in Central CA today, but I didn't have time to get organized, so instead I'm sharing a subset of Rita balancing on things while we were on vaca!
I'm always impressed by Mr. N., the adorable Tenacious Little Terrier and the Adventures of Zoe & Phoenix and all the other talented dogs out there who can hop up on trees and whatnot and pose for photos. Since Rita has a lot of fears, I figured we'd try some hoping-up-and-posing pics, too, to build up her confidence - but we started small!
Here she is on a bench. (I know: easy-peasy. But they had all these cool benches made of logs and driftwood so it was mostly for the photo op and to practice her "go to your bed" command. That was the command I used to get her up on all these things. If I pat something - sofa, her bed, bench, whatever - and say "go to your bed" she'll get on it.)
Here she is on a rock. Unfortunately in this pic you can't tell, but it was pretty high up, so she had to be brave to jump up there.
Here's her best feat... posing on an old driftwood log! She doesn't look so sure in this first photo... (although she does look darn cute)
...but she was warming up to the task in these next two!
Next up for building up her confidence, we're going to do a bit of nose work! Blog posts to come!
