DSL: Doggy Sign Language

Can I just brag about my dog Paquita for a minute. Girl is six and half years old and she still learns new sign language. This morning I signed "coffee" as I've been doing with voice for about two weeks before putting her harness on and walking her to the deli for my regular morning java. Today I just signed coffee without any words and the girl went ballistic, excited to be going on the coffee run. She knows more signs than Christian!

So add coffee to the growing list that includes: Sit, down, roll over, go around (she turns around in a circle), play dead (I sign a gun pointing at her), wave, be cute (where she rubs her eyes with her paws), and lots of words not in sign language on top of that. Makes her mama proud.

Okay, back to regularly scheduled programming.
