    Yesterday I had got ready to head out for a walk, but was waiting for a friend who was coming with us. Jasper was all antsy and ready to go, and I said to him, 'We can't go yet, we need to wait for a friend who's coming round.' At which he went and looked out the front window, which impressed me no end!

    So, what has your dog done recently that you weren't expecting - this could be being exceptionally clever, or stupid, or 'naughty', or good?

    Walked past a huge, muddy puddle without laying down in it. A small thing I know, but quite a momentous event for us! Admittedly, the next day he was back to wallowing like a hippo :rolleyes:

    Does waking me up at 7.30 on a Saturday count?

    But, more seriously, we have been working on recalls over obstacles and got this video the other day. The holding position in the sit impressed me more than the recall!

    Murphy has been working really hard on his recall with OH lately.. Its still hit and miss but most of the time it works out without tears or tantrums..

    Jake jumped up on the sofa next to me recently, totally out of the blue, hasn't done it in probably over a year and didnt even think he still could!! He stayed long enough for us to go 'wow' and have some fuss then down he got to continue his evening routine of wandering...:rolleyes:

    Harri packed himself into the suitcase this morning - I guess he didn't want to be left behind!

    Every damn day Ted surprises me. Good or naughty, it's a mix. Most recently he dodged past me at the front door and was play bowing on the front lawn and wouldn't come in. He's a quick little bugger too. At which point my daughter came to the front door crying holding a pair of my knickers that had come off the line. She was upset because she'd been helping me peg the washing out and they hadn't been pegged on properly. She wouldn't go back inside either. Just stood at the door holding my briefs crying whilst ted danced just out of my reach being an ass.

    The last good surprise from Roxy I can think of was probably not last summer but the one before I took her into a cafe for the first time (not many around here are dog friendly so she hadn't been before), and she was just so good! Sat at my feet the whole time while I had my coffee without a peep! I thought she'd be really wingey, and there was another dog in there and she greeted her nicely, that's also why I thought she'd be Wingey, wanting to go back to the other dog. I was so pleased :) in fact I think I wrote about it in the thread today's walk :)

    Den often surprises me but in a good way.

    One of his cheeky things he does is if he sees a couple or two people walking towards us he doesn’t go around them, he likes to walk right in between them! It always makes me laugh.
