    - Recall (so long as her best friend the husky isn't around). She's fantastic to call even if she's busy chasing kangaroos, she'll still come back as soon as she's called :love:

    - Leave it, I don't even know how she became so good at this one, because I never consciously taught it, but she is SO GOOD at it :)

    Temperament: She loves 'her' people, but hates the rest of the world. AKA. VERY people shy.

    Evie is beautiful:) How did you manage 'leave it' without teaching her? I'm jealous:D Love the photo of her in the Daffodils, too cute!:love:

    Evie has grown so fast. She's such a cutie.:love:
    @MaryK I didn't exactly "teach" Missy leave it either. Something falls on the ground I would snap and point away from the food eventually I just said leave it and she would.

    Evie's just a very sensitive dog in general... I think it helped that as a puppy she wasn't allowed to eat her bowl of food until she'd sat and I'd released her (she learnt this within the first week - such a fast learner) and from then on she assumed that food wasn't to be eaten unless she was told she could. So when she picks up food that she hasn't been told she's allowed, we could say anything to her, in any tone of voice and she'd go 'oops, forgot to ask permission first - my bad'

    Ah, that explains it thank you:)

    Yes I could see that in Evie when I met her:)
    Ra Kismet was also taught, as a small puppy, to not to eat before being told too and was really good but my problem was that Zeus would immediately try to eat Ra Kismet's meal or resource guard. It was the onset of Zeus' Cushings which makes a normally well behave dog go crazy for food, Zeus was stealing food off the counter tops, cat's food anything food, something he'd never have done pre Cushings as he knew to wait etc. and he'd never stolen a thing either, so not easy to deal with as it wasn't just a 'bad'. Ra Kismet's 'manners' didn't get properly taught. Must start to retrain on that, now Zeus' Cushings is under control.

    Thank you! I've always thought she was adorable, but I may be a little bias. Looking through some old photos she went through a very gawky stage lol, but we would still get strangers come up to us and tell us how cute she was :cautious::rolleyes::LOL:

    Like the picture below. She looked really funny without her fluffy 'feathers' around her neck and on her legs

    Ra Kismet went through the same stage, gawky and got the nick name "Daddy Long Legs" but they're still so cute aren't they!:)
  14. Gordykins Experienced Member

    She was still cute even in her gawky age. :)
