Anyway, we had some people over on Saturday for a triple "P" party: pool, ping-pong, and pinball. I made some jell-o shots and put them in hollowed-out fruit. They were pretty darn yummy and oh so cute!
I had an idea yesterday to try for Cyrus's barking issues. I've tried lots and lots and lots of various methods to get him to stop barking. (I pretty much gave up after watching an episode of "The Dog Whisperer" and even renowned dog expert Cesar Milan gave up on some yippy dogs and said that terriers just bark.) I draw the line at bark collars. I just can't do anything that may harm a dog...especially my dog. So, I thought that maybe Cyrus would obey better if I used German commands. (He's a schnauzer, so maybe hundreds of years of ingrained German is buried somewhere deep inside him.) So, I started trying to teach him last night. So far, he's catching on. I still have some German to learn for myself first so I can teach him...and then Matt and Keaton. (I can already see them rolling their eyes.) If I can't get Cyrus to stop barking, then I guess the words on my front door mat will be my excuse.
Fein gemacht! (Good boy!)
