This is my last video for this trick until update time!

I am so pleased with Miss Ab! We have had a breakthrough. This has given me the confidence to shape without objects. Sure, it took a while to get to here (this is fresh from this evening) but it was amazing to watch her think it through and have light bulb moments.
The videoing has definitely helped me with mechanics lol. I struggle a bit in that area.

You will notice that I change my position in the video slightly. This is deliberate - I always start shaping/training on the ground with Abby so I'm at her level and I forget to change up my position early in the process. Before you know it, I have a behaviour that is reliant on my body position because I fail to mix things up.

P is the one at 2:42! He is a pretty good boy sometimes.
Lol - It is hard to believe! They are looking lovely in your last vid. They almost float - they move beautifully!

Frodo is so handsome! He is doing a similar thing to Abby - she'd head turn slightly, but then look straight back at me seeing my reaction I guess. Sometimes she'd go back and forth between nearly doing a head turn and looking back at me lol. He really is getting it.

Sounds like your crew are doing really well! Can't wait to see Tsuki's 'beg'!

That's a shame about Victor, Smkie. Sounds like he really love it.
