Vet Students have a weird sense of humour...

Hey everyone,

I came home one day and discovered that Robz (my Vet student daughter) had taught TOBY a new trick. With a wide grin on her face, she sheepishly showed it to me.

I was rather shocked at first, but then dissolved into giggles.  It has since become a party trick for any visitor that crosses our doorstep.

Thank you, Robyn, for your quirky sense of humour.

Will I forgive you? 
Time will tell.

Sending lotsaluv


  1. Oh, how cute and sad all at the same time ☺.

  2. It is always good to have some party tricks. I knew a dog owner who taught her dog one new trick a month as she figured over the life of the dog her dog would learn lots, and it was good for her dog to keep learning. I got all enthusiastic trying to do little bits of training regularly, but only lasted a few months teaching "tricks". By now Riley (beyond basic commands) should have learnt over 70 tricks - I think he knows about ten. Maybe that will be my project next year.

  3. Howdy Caryl, gotta love a sense of humour. It's what makes us laugh! Good boy Toby hehe. We've seen the same thing but someone points a finger at the dog and says "bang" and they roll over. Hope your week has been a good one so far. No worries, and love, Carol

  4. That is too funny! Most people would have called that "play dead" but I love your command better. Very cheeky.


  5. I think Toby is very smart for learning so fast--, and it is a cute trick.

  6. Hey that's a good one. My brother Owen does that everytime my dad say's "pickup baby" because he dropped Owen once after my dad picked him up :(

  10. Having lived for three years with medical students when I was a geology undergraduate at Bristol University, I am somewhat familiar with the medical sense of humour...
    Well done Toby!
