I also continued working on the torso of the life-scale figure (here with all the tools I used for that session of carving and a marker for scale.)
In creature news, Honey and I are working on expanding the gesture and command for "bed" to apply to various textile rectangles in different spaces so that, if I'm selected for a fellowship and we're working in an unfamiliar space, she'll be able to recognize her special spot. This is challenging because it involves her being able to combine an action (down-stay) with recognition of a category of differing objects (the various "beds"). But I know Honey can do it because she already understands "ball" as "round objects the human throws," and can apply it to new things (like if a box of new toys arrives and I say "ball," she can pick the ball out from among the toys and bring it to me.)
|My wonderpup is very smart.|
|Of course, now that Honey is training to sleep in this spot, |
the kittens have decided it must be a very good
napping spot for them too, haha.
