Commitment: the state of being emotionally impelled to do something. My commitment is to making art, loving life and doing well.

Daily Artworks... my continuing challenge for 2015: Observe and record. Record and observe. And stretch - s-t-r-e-t-c-h - myself.
What will I discover?

Gone to the Dogs - Day 20

Casper Waiting For Something Good  

Casper Lies Down    
- as soon as he hears the command    

We are trying to challenge the dogs to sharpen up some of their basic training.
Besides their own names, they are supposed to know "No", as well as "Sit", "Stay", "Drop It", "House", and "Lie Down". Somehow, the dogs were understanding the last two commands as one, and if we said either "Lie Down" or "House" they would head for the house, before they would lie down.
Now, that's not a problem for the "House" command, but it is a problem if we want them to simply lie down where they are.
Well, after some practice, and quite a few dog treats, Casper has got it. We're still working on Spirit.
