Shyla Mimicks Me (part 2)

Shyla is a multi-talented dog. She can leap to great heights and then wag her tail as she descends toward the ground. But she's not just an amazing athlete...

...she is also brilliant at learning new things. Last week, I showed you video of her mimicking me doing some fairly simple things. Today, I have another short video of her mimicking me doing things that were somewhat more difficult for her to figure out.

Enjoy it! The video can be found here or at Youtube.


  1. Shyla you are the most talented mimicker.
    We stepped on mom's daffodils but she was not happy.

  4. Oh Shyla, you're such a fun sweetie!

  5. You are so very smart, Shyla. Mom does such good things for all of you.

  6. That is amazing! That must have been a bit of a tough crawl through that tunnel. It's a good thing you are so small. Most dog parents probably couldn't do that one very well.

  7. You never fail to bring smiles to our faces, Shyla. You are so incredibly smart!

  8. Oh my stars above...I'd say I'm speechless but you know I always have words.
    WOW!! Each mimic was amazing but the tunnel blew my mind. I hope someone gave you a treat for doing it too.
    Then the 4 discs!! Bravo x 87
    I'll be smiling all day with this in my mind.
