I've been working on sit with her today and I realize what the problem is. I'm supposed to use just the hand signal which is open palm in front of her nose and then over her head. However, instead of sitting down and looking up at my hand which triggers the click and reward, she stands up on her back legs and tries to get the treat out of my open palm. So, I need some new ideas on getting her to sit. Any suggestions?

Last night around 9pm the phone rang. I assumed it was Patrick calling to tell me good night and that he loves me. Surprise, surprise! It was my friend Sara Jo that I have known since first grade. I haven't seen her since my Junior year of college. We've emailed now and then over the years. She has just moved to Syracuse from Germany and we have reconnected thanks to Facebook. It was really great talking to her. We actually spent an hour and a half on the phone. It was interesting reminiscing and finding out that she didn't even remember not talking to me in seventh grade. Of course, from my perspective, it's kind of hard to forget. Anyway, I'm planning a visit for a couple of days next month once Saffy's school is done.
