"my dog can do that" game

On 23 September I wrote about games to play with dogs and one of the links led to a game called "My dog Can Do That".

Today Jabari's mum lent Penny and me a copy of the game. Of course, Penny, a keen game-player from way back, insisted on opening the box and getting started - even though it was nearly midnight and I'd been out socialising and was ready for bed. But Penny's a party animal and always ready for some fun. She scanned the rule book when I put the game on the table and we were all set to play.

By the way, here's review of the game.

The first card we turned over was a tough one:

As you can see, it was a breeze for her. She scampered past the row of treats on the floor (see them in the photo?), as soon as she was given the signal. Then it was off to bed for her, leaving me to burn the midnight oil recounting her success (on this blog).

Wow, Penny, you look so good, sitting at the table, reading the cards and not trying to eat them. My mum says that when I grow up a bit we can have a game togather.

Of course, Jabari, you must have suspected that Penny only raced past the food on the floor because I was holding a handful of treats. Looks like she can count and knows 'a bunch of treats in the hand is worth more than two treats on the floor'. It's an old Australian saying.

I think it would be great fun to play this game with a couple of dogs - or even more!
