When they’re up to something you better prepare for hugs and kisses … like father, like son. 🙂
This year we have been thinking really hard about how we want to wish you Happy Easter. Then I decided I will draw again. What? Well, of course the Easter Bunny! But when I sat down to do it … strange things happened … WHAT is THAT??? LOOK and see for yourself! As always I saved the funniest part for last. 🙂
My Bull Terrier Mila is a very creative little pooch. I don’t think her next trick will be juggling her balls. That’s probably too tricky to do with just paws. But the games she plays with her balls … Recently she re-invented dog fetching in the swimming pool. This may be the pride of the dog owner speaking, but it’s really fascinating and hilarious at the same time, how she manages to conquer her balls with patience and devotion.
Mila only managed to do this two or three times so far in the water. But she keeps practicing passionately to tackle this task, which she completely assigned to herself on her own. And I only managed to record it once! See for yourself.
In terms of dog tick training not everything works smoothly all the time – and why should it, training is just having a good time together. Sometimes it’s just fun to get carried away. On very good days Mila makes her own schedule of exercises and gets so excited that she is barely able to perform the movements correctly. This looks so funny sometimes, I just thought you should see it yourself.
Watch Mila doing the “doggie swirl” when she gets super excited!

I have trained Mila to use a potty bell to indicate when she needs to go outside for “business”.

This is very useful, but also a little tricky. Because in the dog’s mind sometimes the bell mutates more into a butler bell – that’s when your dog starts training you. Don’t let her fool you into answering her ringing, when she is just seeking attention, because that could spark the bell to go off all the time.
Luckily over time I learned to tell, if she is ringing for “potty” or other things. In the video below you see Mila using her “potty bell” to tell me that she wants to GO … outside and play 🙂 If I smell the ruse and do not respond, this is what happens most of the time:
Bull Terrier snoring is one of the quirky habits of these funny little clowns. Here’s a sight, probably all too familiar to almost every English Bull Terrier owner regarding his dog and sleeping:
- Sleeping in odd positions
I was happy to catch this on tape once. Mila sometimes wakes up with imprints in her face from the bars she is leaning against. 🙂 Sorry for the noisy TV in the background. Oddly again, she would not mind a train passing by. But once we switch the TV to mute, she will be waking up.
