Talkative Charles

Hello again, my new friends, welcome back to my blog. I am a Yorkie named Charlie. This blog is my diary and my mom helps me transcribe what's happening in my little part of the world.

I'm feeling pretty talkative today. Sometimes I like to bark loudly. Other times I just grumble in my sleep. I tend to like a high pitched but extremely quiet whimper, it's my favorite and feels very soooooooothing to the soul. My mom is not a fan of this. My trainer, Sue, says it's pretty hard to hear, barely noticeable but Mom hears everything. She's a good listener. Sometimes when she asks me to be quiet, I oblige by doing the quiet whimper. I'm not quite sure why she asks twice, but she does.

Anyway, Sue told my Mom that a good way to work on this is to keep me distracted and make my brain work. WOAH! I'm a thinker, so this can be hard. I mean, I like my own thoughts.. about squirrels, and squeaky dragons, and such. My favorite toy is a super squeaky dragon. Anyway, so, my mom got this thing called my "place" where I sleep and hang out. It's great for calming down, meditating, and looking out my favorite window. Mom's super thoughtful like that and put my place (a cot -- mom's note) near a big window where I can watch cars go by.

Another way Mom and Dad keep my brain working is to practice with me. We practice walking next to each other, sitting, high-fives, all kinds of fun stuff. Then, sometimes, they make me sit while they fluff up the blankets in my place. This one is super hard for me because I really don't like people messing with my stuff, but I'm always pretty happy to have my blanket fluffed (after it's all over -- mom's note).

Well, today was bright out. Very bright. So Mom took me on a short walk, she promised a long one later. We practiced our skills (Sue gave me homework too -- Mom). I can't wait, maybe we'll get a few pictures later.

Thanks for reading my blog. How do you and your human best friends meditate and practice skills together? What's your favorite trick?
