Sitting maremmas

002For some reason, loyal readers best known only to herself mummy is very keen on the concept of Me and Nellie being able to sit when she tells Us to do so.  Why she want Us to do so is beyond my ken, but it seems to make her happy when We sit.  Maremmas are well-known for being “cloth-eared”, only hearing what they want to hear, so We suppose that she thinks she is being in control of Me and Nellie if We do as she tells.  Oh, how little does she know.  Me and Nellie are such free spirits and We do as We want to.   Love Nellie and Jasper, two very attentive maremmas.

Daddy giving Me and Nellie a tasty treat.

    I’m pretty “cloth-eared” too 🙂

    You have her trained perfectly – you just sit attentively whenever you want a treat 😉

    Don’t you look so attentive and well-behaved. I should practise that more often I suppose, but half the time I don’t want the treat that badly!!

    Mommy makes us do that too.

  5. I also have to sit when I’m told. And heel and down and come and stay. I’d do just about anything for a piece of that jerky!! Mmmmm….

    Love and licks,

    We have to sit and stay for our dinner and our bones – sometimes Honey breaks when the oldies take too long. Happy sniffs…. Nutty and Honey

    You know, the smell of something delicious always seems to make my ears work better 😉

    Only hearing what you want to hear? Are you certain you aren’t terriers?

  12. I’d stand on my head for some of that jerky:-)

    Man, all it takes is the crinkle sound of the treat bag and we come running! Not sure if we run the roost over here, but we keep Mommy on her toes! A good way to get Mommy upset is to beg to go outside when it is pouring rain, that gets her every time! LOL (insert evil laugh here)

  14. Lee thinks sometimes people just think they have said something at a volume we could hear, but have not. However, if we had that jerky we would be sitting too! Lee and Phod

    Please pass the jerky!!! Katie has those cloth ears too. Now that she is older she listens more but now and then she can really be stubborn and make mom mad!

  16. I think I have the same ears as you … and this beef jerky looks yummy … I can smell it on my screen ;o)

  17. Whee saw some lovely well behave maremmas when whee watched the TV coverage of Crufts Dog Show. Maybe one day whee will be watching you obeying every command in a ring?!
