Stan the span was named after our beloved Stan Musial. We are Cardinal fans, and live in St. Louis. He goes to Pooches in the park, and all the ball players know him.

We had a baseball jersey made with his name on it and it's a big hit at Busch stadium!

Hoop Jumping
by: Patti

Hi Maggie's mom,
Try holding the hoop against the wall to block one side, with you
on the other side. Start low. Gradually raise your treat hand up as you raise the hoop. Use the treat as a target. Does Maggie know the touch game? You can also use that to get her jumping higher. I talk Stanley in a narrow hall, so he couldn't walk around the hoop. He love's to jump through it now. He knows 30 tricks, but this is by far his favorite thing to do. He is my demo dog for classes I teach at the Humane Society of Missouri. We volunteer on Saturdays, to teach the shelter dogs nice manners, so hopefully they will stay in their new homes, and not be returned to the shelter.

A flying star....
by: Maggie's mom

I'm trying to teach Maggie how to jump through a hoola hoop. So far, she'll walk through and maybe jump two inches. If I raise the hoola hoop higher, she'll walk around it to get her treat.

Thanks for writing to us. We did enter the contest; hope it was the right one. Apparently there isn't a prize, but we had fun anyway.

Very nice puppy and he looks like a show dog.
