Silly Rabbit – Tricks Are For Kids
April 2 | 69 Comments
I’ve never been into dog tricks; they’re rather, oh I don’t know, beneath me. However, play me in a game of three card monte and I’ll be walking away with your owner and your collar. I can’t say whether one is better than the other but Cindy the spaniel decided to go the first route, learning to be the queen of dog tricks in the process.
Cindy, a pedigree cavalier King Charles spaniel, can balance objects on all four paws while lying down.
She can also keep a golf ball in a spoon held in her mouth while balancing objects on her head.
Proud owner Mark Bucknell, from Wednesfield, in the West Midlands, said: “Who needs the telly when you’ve got a dog like this?”
Mrs. Savales for one.
He said the family started teaching Cindy tricks when they took her in as an eight-month old.
Cindy is also a dab hand with a golf ball and a spoon
Ron Bucknell, 75, said the family had run out of tricks to teach her.
That’s not what Buddy, her pimp told me but who am I to shatter Ron’s world?
It took her six months to learn to wait for her reward but, despite having undergone two leg operations since, her circus skills have remained intact.
She pees like an elephant, eats like a lion, and loves to go car riding with a bunch of clowns. I guess they’re right, her circus skills seem to be intact.
Mr Bucknell had this advice for his envious fellow dog owners. “You don’t do the dog any favours if you leave it as a dumb mut.
It’s the same advice I have for canines. You don’t do your owners any favors by leaving them dumb. Make sure to train them to feed you, walk you and let you out to do your business on your schedule not theirs.
