It seems I have forgotten a couple points on our list of reasons to be adored.

11) Besides being cute, Maltese have great hand-mouth cordination.
What is so sad about this is that we have practiced to get to this point (first attempt). It took him a couple of sessions just to learn to open his mouth when the treat was flying at his face. He was just letting them bounce off his head at first!

On a more positive note -
Rugby was great at class tonight. We have spent so much time of the front we have to balance it out and work on the finish a little more. He cut the broad jump pretty close as well. I had set it up pushed up against a 'wall' of sorts specifically to see how much it would affect him since he has a tendancy to pull towards the right side to begin with. The front he gave me off the broad jump was really really good though. Just need to get him to jump closer to the middle!!


  1. Hey Rugby,

    You are a very patient doggy. I'd gobble up those nummies!


  2. Awww! We all have bad aim once in a while! Rugby's cuteness makes up for his lack of catching!

  3. Just for the record, the treats still bonce off the heads in this house. :)

  4. We have not tried that. Now that the human has seen your video, she may start throwing our treats at us!

  5. Ah Rugby, you are much more patient that us! That's for darn sure.

  6. They don't get the "catch the treat" concept in this house either...But, like Rugby, they sure look cute trying!

  7. Well, I guess we feel a little better about it since he isn't the only one who can't catch!!
