Thanks everyone Not been on here much since I joined, but internet's up and running properly now so I can make the most of it!
Teaching Fizz (we didn't name her, but it suits her so well that we weren't bothered about trying to change it and confuse her further!) how to understand English was certainly fun... mainly it involved cheese, ham and a LOT of repetition - she's not exactly the brightest button in the box We only worked out why she was being so "ignorant" when we remembered her previous owner saying they had got her from a Polish man.. we looked up Polish words on the internet and tried them out - all of a sudden she was doing what she was told! After a lot of giggling, we started using the English words along with the Polish words, until she knew what to do. I think she pretended to not understand more than was really true, in order to get as much cheese into her chops as possible.
Hope you and your bullies are all happy and healthy xxx
Welcome to the bully family. It is interesting hearing how you are making your pup bi-lingual. I once knew a bi-lingual Brittney Spaniel, it was cool.
My two are so spoiled, they are stubborn as can be, now I know why bull is in their name. Now if I can just figure out my kids!!! lol
Fantastic! Iit! Vegas and Orion know sign language. The sign I use every day is the sign for the word "finished". They like to hang around the kitchen during meal time. First they eat, then they return for meds. Once the meds have been taken, they sit there...with heads cocked...waiting for more. The second I give the sign "finished" they both run off checking out each other's food bowl for any missed morsels of food. It's a good thing they can't sign back. I'm sure Orion would be signing "more, more, more, more.....hungry, hungry, hungry".
Wow! How smart of you to get her language to help the transition! Isn't it just amazing what you can find on the internet? Sounds like you've had a fun filled challenge. Hope you visit here often, it really is a fun group. Welcome!
There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!
