    I need to go back to work!

    I am off on compassion leave right now... and in this time I have re-trained my dogs NOT to use a pee pad... they are big girls now and go outside...

    I have taught my min pin Ginger to play fetch and am working on flyball with her...

    and I have taught her to collect the eggs [​IMG]

    she will follow me to the coop.. wait patiently for me to go in first she will sit right beside the nest box and wait for me to give her a bantam egg and then she takes off like mad for the door to the house she will set the egg down on the dirt by the door and wait for me to open the door, she will then pick her egg back up and put it on the couch where I take it from her. she has yet to break an egg or chase a chicken while in the coop.

    yep its official I have to much time on my hands

    this is Ginger my 5lb Min Pin

    [​IMG] Awww, yay for Ginger and you. I wish my dogs were that well behaved. After staying at home with each of my children for their first year of life, I knew it was time to go back to work when my husband caught me cleaning the kitchen floor with a toothbrush! Ha Ha Great job with training your adorable dog!
