Over the weekend we took a road trip to deliver and finally meet one of our wholesale buyers for Old Red Barn Co. Kate and her uber-cool dog Bella own and operate a gift shop in Black Mountain, North Carolina called Mountain Spirit Gifts. We've been doing business with each other for awhile and figured it was time we met in person.
The girls loved Bella. She could do the most amazing tricks and the entire drive home was spent with talk and plans on how they were going to train Harpo and Scout to do the same cool stuff.
Kids think that puppies should sit when you say sit. Because they should just know what that means. And if they don't sit when you ask them then maybe it is because they didn't hear you. So they yell it. Sit!
Razor explained that you have to show them what to do. You have to teach them the command. Razor said, "Licious, you have to show them what lay down means."
So, Licious fell to the ground and said "Lay down! Like this!!"
Something tells me it'll be awhile before our puppies know all the tricks that Bella does. Call it a hunch.
