I lied. It’s not really that new. Shiva learned this a few months ago I just didn’t get around to filming it until now. So it’s new to the rest of the world!
Personally, I think it’s one of her more visually impressive acts, even if it took a shorter time to teach than others. Like backing up, which took a lot of creative maneuvering. This trick is just fun. It’s perfect for getting her pumped up. Not that she needs a lot of help with that. All we have to do is look at her and she is revved to go.
Anyway, here she is, for your entertainment, Shiva the High-Drive Screwball!
For what it’s worth, I didn’t actually teach her this trick all by myself. My husband may have helped a smidge. As in, he spent the time rewarding her for each step and I jumped in every now and then to proof it. So it’s practically all my hard labour you’re seeing here. That’s why he’s showing it off and I am not. Who’s counting, right?
