From Mary Gormley, Los Angeles:
thanks for writing about gidge...
fyi...all her "tricks" are just natural behaviors that I reward with food and give each "trick" a word and the click of a dog training tool called a clicker....she can sneeze, dig, attack, bark, etc.
I guess you could call her a method actor : )
she will be this year's dog of hope for tailsofhope.com and use her celeb status to do fundraising for friendsofsnuffy.com
