Oh I love that!! And I totally know what you mean. Watching them master those seemingly simple skills that will eventually be such a mundane part of life is really so very special.Good girl Peggy!
The most memorable breakthrough of Zeke’s was when he learned to jump up on furniture. Not much of a breakthrough, right?
He couldn’t jump up on anything to save his life. He saw the other dog do it many times a day, but just couldn’t get it. He’d get in front of the couch, jump straight up in the air and then try to get himself on the couch. The result was, that he’d bang his chest against the edge of the cushions and fall back down. (I laughed at him so hard! ). Finally, at 11 1/2 months old, he jumped on my chair like he’d been doing it his whole life. It just finally clicked for him how to do it. He was so silly and jumping on and off everything all day.

Zeke's efforts sound absolutely (hilariously) adorable.
