Katie's First Videos...

I was trying to get Katie to speak and then whisper. She didn't do it quite right the first time, but I posted it anyway because I liked the guest appearance by Scarlett. If you listen carefully to the end of the second video you can hear Katie whisper or at least see her mouth moving without much sound coming out.

Oh my goodness- I thought Caffrey was the only dog who whispered! I tried to teach him speak without luck. He heard Katie speak while I was listening and now he is barking up a storm...too funny!

The first time I played the videos Katie barked too.

We taught her to speak by ringing the doorbell. I would say Katie Speak then Gary would ring the doorbell which would prompt her to bark. Then I praised her like crazy, told her good speak and gave her treats. After 2 tries she understood. Whisper was much harder to teach, so Caffery has the difficult part down. What a clever boy to learn whisper first :-)

Scarlett cracks me up. That's such a husky thing to do: "Hey, this moment must be all about me, right?!?!"

Katie is brilliant. She's going to be a great big sister to Louis the Red!
