Just what everyone needs for the cold winter months. Every snowed in artist’s studio needs to have a good supply of footwarmers and even though this particular model requires a lot of maintenance and upkeep, it is by far my favorite. My 130 pound portable heat generator.
I have definitely been doing too much computer work getting ready for Kickstarter and not enough work in the studio! Jax has been a little deprived of me time, so I took him out for a little snow play. I brought along the usual assortment of
bribes, err, rewards. When we were about to come back in the house I readied the last treat and gave him his usual command, well…..almost. “Scroll down Jax, scroll down”.I swear he’s been laughing at me ever since! He’ll never let me live this down I fear.
Jax has a repertoire of tricks a mile long that he is very proud of. He is one great big lovable goofball. What the video doesn’t show is the push-pull struggle we go through when I need to get something out of a drawer:
Me pulling as hard as I can to keep the drawer open while I retrieve something: “Jax, I need it open to get something out!”
Jax, pushing as hard as he can to close it ”But I don’t get a treat until the drawer is closed. Out of my way woman!”
Still the most challenging rottie I’ve had, and the only male. Stubborn, smart, stubborn, beautiful, stubborn, protective, did I mention stubborn?? He can also reach my keyboard and grabs my hands if he thinks he’s not getting enough attention. Makes typing a bit difficult. Sigh.
