Operation Sow's Ear to Purse 13: training fail!

 My objective for last week was to try to teach Duke 'Down' and 'stay'.  It's not gone particularly well.  I got distracted and tried to teach him to 'target' the end of a pencil with his nose : he's quite good at that, but the down and stay is - well it's sort of there.  Barely.  For about a second max. 

I did manage to get this : 


but Duke got up again almost immediately afterwards, and I think this is more of a tribute to Molls & Az doing what they were told with good timing than Duke! 

In other news: more frost again!  I MUST get that orchid that has been outside for the summer back in.  So far the frost has not come to the house, but it's only a matter of time.
