Tess learning to fetch the ball, sit, shake paws - and play.

I took this video of Tess during my lunch break today, it was just a little play session but at the same time I was teaching her to fetch the ball, sit (which she does all the time now without any trouble) and a new game she is learning which is to shake paws.

When you see her hanging on to the ball it's not because she won't let me have it, it's a soft ball and it gets stuck on her sharp little teeth. Also you will notice her stop and look up at the sky, there was a crow that took her attention, she is quite easily distracted at the moment.

Anyway I hope you enjoy the video, sorry we go out of shot for a short while at one point.

Hello Rob. What a lovely video- i enjoyed watching you teach Tess to fetch- enjoyed the birds in background too- what a lovely quiet place to stay. I want a Tess now.
I'm playing catch-up with the blogs just now- ended up in hospital with gastroenteritis- hope l spelled that right. I'm much better now though- looking forward to some decent weather this weekend- my garden is needing some work doing.
hope all going well for you and family

Rob, you are an excellent fetcher, and looks like Tess was catching on at the end! She is so precious, and I loved her "shake".

Really loving her curled up tail. So darn cute.
