Roll Over!
& Tail-Wagging Tuesdays

I have always wanted a dog that could roll over.  I don't know why, it has just always been a thing. So right around Christmas, I set out to teach Ruger a new trick. 
This weekend, after several months of working with him and lots of laughing, he FINALLY did it on the first try! 
I took a video this morning and wanted to share -- our Ruger-dog can ROLL OVER! YAY!


I thought this was a pretty awesome thing for our pup as he is almost 3 -- that's 21 in people years!!! So I guess it was like Doggy-College haha =) Maybe I'll host a little puppy graduation....J would seriously think I was ridiculous! Maybe I'll just settle for some Frosty Paws and a scoop of peanut butter =)


For this edition of T.W.T. we are sharing the pup's beds.
I DIY-ed Ruger's bed; The tutorial I posted can be found here.

He loves his bed -- which is actually bigger than it appears.  He usually curls up into a little ball of puppy in the middle and has more than enough room.  Although, there was one day that he was especially exhausted and this is how he ended up lol

What a fun new trick! I was excited when my dogs finally learned roll over (I taught them "bang bang"/play dead first to make it easier)!
