Woof Woof, Farley here.
Is it just me or is fishing really fun?
I’ve been at the cottage for three days, and I’ve trained my alpha (That’s Matt by the way.)
“Come down here,” I bark. I glance at the boathouse and then at Matt.
Matt’s so smart he comes on command.
“Get the rod, get the rod, get the rod,” I bark.
Matt does as instructed.
Now, I do my dance. This really gets Matt laughing.
Every time I dance like this, he casts the lure and I bark.
If he catches something, I really go crazy. These alphas need a lot of praise. The more I praise him the more he’ll cast the lure.

You are quite a good dancer, Farley. Be sure not to back up while you dance. My human also needs that positive reenforcement.
I’ll admit it, but don’t tell anyone – I stepped back and fell off the dock once. Everyone laughed. Except me of course, so I shook all over my peeps, making them scream and run away. Then it was me who laughed. Woof Woof.
Keep up the good work Farley. Humans need constant attention and you really have the system down to a science. Great photo!
Woof Woof Debi. Why aren’t you here running with us? No one drops by in their kayak for the early morning beach run 🙂 On the good side, Kristina lets me sleep in longer than you did.
Great pos – what a hoot! Farley is such a clever pooch. Awesome shot!
Oops – that should’ve said ‘Great post!’…
Were you using paws to type? I always have typos, especially if it’s time to clip my nail. Thanks for calling me clever 🙂
Paws are such a nuisance sometimes!! : )))xox
Sounds like you’ve got your humans well trained, Farley! Do they share the fish they catch with you sometimes?
I’m fussy. I only like Wahoo. Tuna’s not my thing. And I like it cooked. I don’t get the raw thing everyone is so excited about. Woof. Woof.
