She still amkes quite a mess, just now she knows how to*** off her
fingers and use them to scoop things off of her face. By the end of the
donut, she had a nicely glazed face.

He is doing very good. There have been no repeats of the biting incident.
But what I have started to do is to, whenever Moogli is on the sofa and
Emilie comes up, he gets told to get off. If she wants to move on the
sofa, he gets told to get off until she is done. Then, and only then, can
he get back up.

I have also started her on giving him commands in return for food. Right
now it is just "sit", but he is getting the hint. His following the
command is a bit shaky, but I think that is more a result of her not
saying it right [1] than him not listening.

[1] She is still at the age where there are extra syllables mysteriously
added into words here and there.

When having little kids work with dogs (both my nephews, ages 5 and 1 [WOW!
Today!] ) I've found it useful to have them issue hand signals along with
whatever they're saying.  The kids seem to have an easier time mastering
hand signals, and the dogs are less likely to look at the kid like they're
speaking Greek.
