Training Mom

 Mom and dads not read any further........whew!!!
Okay friends, do you realize how we have our pawrents trained? or just a momma or just a dad? We are highly intelligent big, medium and little creatures. It goes like wanna play ball?...nudge....nudge...nudge...

I won't leave until you throw it. Ut threw it and it bounced and is stuck under the bed.. come mommy come, come get our ball.

The next game is fun. We push the ball under furniture or between things and mom gets it. Lily will make odd noises like a human baby til mom retrieves it. Oh mommy...guess what...
The most important training we subjected mom to was treats aka: cookies. Awwwww, she said...look at those adorable faces...Wanna cookie? So kids, its not that difficult. I am sure most of you already know the rules. BOL

Your freinds,
Benny & Lily


  1. Thanks for the helpful tips. I need to train my Mommeh to give me more treats. Many, many, many more treats.

  2. Hi Benny and Lily!!
    OMD those are some great tips. I like to train my parents to play ball too - it's just tooo easy!!

  3. Hi Benny and Lily
    We are currently working on a training programme with our humans but they are not coming along as well as your mom.
    One of the obstacles we face is that she is distracted by the computer.
    We are sometimes having to be quite forceful with her - we have jumped on top of her and are quite good at getting our heads between her hands and the keyboard in order to have our petting needs met!
    We will follow your tips but if you can think of anything else to help please get in touch.

  4. Oh yes! The Mango does the same thing. I "drop" my toys under the furnitures and then try to get them out which usually results in couches moving around and lamps toppling over and momma moving most quickly and making fun squeee sounds.


  5. HI
    Oh yah!! works every time for me and the best thing mom thinks I am so cute just having the ball in my mouth that she says..bring the ball here and I will throw it for you!! now THAT is "REAL" training you guys!!

    Many ball throws

  6. Benny! Lily!

    You have trained your humans well, I see. I'm currently training mine to give me food every time I put my toys away in their box. It's lots of fun!

    I hope you both have a grrrrEAT day ahead,


  7. You are both adorable and have your humans trained so well! We have ours trained as well... first mom and dad, and then the world! ~3 chis and a bc

  8. We make sure we have looooots of tennis balls to play with so our mom is always retrieving them from under the furniture. Oscar has a very specific whine that pierces moms ears too. He uses it and mom gets the balls out post haste! Yeah, we have her trained pretty good.

    Lots of treats,
    Tinkerbell, Oscar and Tucker

  9. When I was a little pup my mom was very good at helping me find my toys. Back then I had her trained good. But now, she just looks at me and tells me to figure it out myself. My sad puppy dog face just doesn't work on her anymore.


  10. Excellant post, you can never be too well trained in this area. I am a master of jumping up on Mommy with a toy, when she is all comfy in her recliner and then dropping said toy on the floor. Next of course I must cry for the toy until she gets up to let me get it. It is an exhausting game for me, but it keep Mommy in good form, so it is worth it.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  11. Oh my, you two are very smart pups!

    Hugs, Tessa

  12. You've really got your mom trained! I'm impressed!

  13. Our mom is so gullible too, guys! We have her wrapped right around our paws!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  14. I am SO with you! Got my momma trained to a tee! She even lifts the covers for me so I can crawl under without having to root around! Hehehehe - such is the life with a well-trained human, right guys?

  19. Hey there again!
    (Okay, I didn't say this.... If you push a ball under the coach for the humans to fetch themselves, it is your only chance to butt-sniff them!)
