Well I think we might finally be on the right track!
I have been teaching my dogs, Mike and Vige to be search and rescue dogs, mostly to help me, but then mostly out of sheer boredom. Motivation turns out to be the key.
Mike: Ball
Vige: Food
Cats:
A: Belle Food
B: Anna Affection
Mine: Lately: Peace of mind
Getting some work done
Making them listen to me
The Results:
Each of them wants to play
Motivation can change
Keep them interested
The game can go on forever
Visual cues and auditory cues can be learned:
a) treats
b) sound of treats
Now they are ready to listen to me if I use those cues

Perhaps they can locate the money,
you made me think this since you wanted to win
I still want to win..

I will let you know if it works,
because they are bugging the ____out of me right now
to keep playing,

Your friend,
cclarkego
and multitude of game obsessed pets
photos to follow

The problem is how to make the game be over. We have not figured out that trick yet.
Mike: Hates to get wet
Vige: Hates to get in trouble
Cats: A: Hates to be jumped on by dogs
B: Hates, no she could care less, she is BIG and has CLAWS
If anyone bothers her, you can imagine the consequences....

Carol,

Great pictures! Wish I had ESP, I would know where you hid that $ and tell you so you would have the money and I could win a piece of your artwork!

Hope you are taking good care of yourself.

Maggie

WE HAVE A WINNER!

This morning my stove in my house quits and in desperation I decide to haul all the stuff I need to make waffles out of the trailer and then go back one more time to look for the instruction book on my new waffle iron. I pull out the folder stuffed with instruction books from just inside my Airstream Manual and as I am about to put it away, I notice a white envelope from my doctor with my hospital admit info. What the heck is this doing in there? Thank God I peek inside before that little flick of the wrist sent it into the trash can........... It was just a small sum of money I had tucked away for my art supplies, but it couldn't have come at a better time

Strangely enough, the night before I got one of those emails where you need to make a wish and then forward it on to 12 other people. Well you can guess my wish and usually I never act on those things, but the quote was so good, I decided to do it.

Here is the quote:

Quotation:
'May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us..'

AND THE PRIZE GOES TO........redstart!
PM me your address so I can send you your painting

Congratulations,

Carol

how sweet the sound....

Got your message Carol, it's always nice to find lost $$ isn't it!

I am afraid that sending me a painting might cost you more than the money you just found since I live on the other side of the continent AND in Canada! A painting sounds lovely but it would warm my heart if you just bought your doggies a treat from me instead. You can say it's from this cute girl named Jersey (my dog).




Love your stories and your pics!!! Now i have to go get caught up on everything - haven't checked this forum in a while!!!

Congratulations on finding your lost treasure.
Now, maybe you can help me find my iPod... It's about 2x3, white, and was last seen on my coffee table...

Alas, another missing iPod

Indeed, congrats, Carol. At least you haven't completely lost your marbles.

Sorry to hear about your troubles, Terry. Mine is missing, too. Last seen on the arm of the couch (?) in the trailer...

Hi, some of us are too poor to own an iPod, yet alone lose it.
