Going Green


Dog Blog Post #488: Today, Zachary got to show off his skills for...

Our Daily Challenge - Oct 24, 2011 - "Going Green"
Artistic Temperament Scavenger Hunt "#89. Reduced, Reused, Recycled"

He loves this trick, and once he figured out he was supposed to put the paper in the bag (in the past I've used a can) and not bring me the bag, he was off to the races.

I will admit, however, that did take a bit to make the connection of paper-in-bag.

In the end, after much confusion over multiple minutes that included him bringing me both wads and bag, me trying to demonstrate the wads were supposed to go in the bag (he retrieved them back out) and me making a variety of futile hand gestures - I finally just tossed a wad away from him.

He raced after it, picked it up, and dropped it neatly into the bag.


(Sometimes I can be such an idiot.)

After that, he was practically flawless.


Henry doesn't do recycling. He's more into reuse.


Editor's Note: (a) Yesterday's green raincoat is actually my raincoat, since the boys' coats don't have hoods (b) Precious Puppies don't wear raincoats with hoods, and (c) the boys are bathed twice a month and are most definitely NOT stinky! :)

I'm in love with these shots! This is one area where I envy you with the boys, because Greyhounds would never lower themselves to menial chores like picking things up. You definitely have a couple of gems there!

OK, Zachary just got elected as the new poster boy for recycle.

Henry will assist him in the shredding department.
