Farfalle’s best trick is faking his sister out to get what he wants E.g.

He will also sing on command–sometimes.

    Oh wow, I really hope I win this! With a baby coming in June, it would be wonderful to celebrate my fur baby before he comes along. :)

    My name is Elly and I live in Ottawa, near Silvercity Gloucester. My little adorable girl is named Storm. She is a lovable 6.5 lb mutt, supposedly a mix between a Maltese, Silky Terrier, and something else, but really, she looks like a black long-haired chihuahua/papillon!! She turned 2 years old in August, and her best trick is that she dances on her hind legs with her front paws beating up and down. We never taught her how, she just does it when she’s really ecstatically happy.
