Kiva Playing Patty Cake



  1. She’s got the moves!

    • And the dress! She is wearing her Christmas Dress!

  2. LOL. Adorable!

  3. Whaddaya know? My dog is ALSO named Kiva! Great name for a cute pooch, eh?!

    • Wow! Great things think alike. Mine is named for the Native American round ceremonial rooms found in most of the Native American ruins we have been to.

  4. How cute! My boyfriend has been known to play patty cake with our dog and do the rhyme with him as well “and mark it with an R for Rocco and me!” and Rocco is not very fond of it. haha!

    • hahahaha I love that! We use to do a reading program at the library and when the kids finished their books I would give the hand command for patty cake and it would look like she was clapping for them finishing their books. It worked and the kids loved it. Even though she had played patty cake when they first met her, they did not realize it was the same trick.

  5. how cute, I would love for my dog to be involved in one of the reading programs for kids. I am not sure if he would sit still long enough, when lounging, her prefers blankets and pillows. I LOVE that you taught little Kiva to “clap” for the kids, so cute!

    • We used a big blanket on the floor and the kids sit next to her and pet her. When you train them to “look” at the book, by hiding treats in it they become very interested in books. We had one book that has the little doors that open and I would hide treats behind the doors. She would always be waiting and looking for the door to open. She would stand on their leg to look behind the door. It was fun.

  6. Soooo cute! Hugs

  7. oh! Aww too adorable for words!! x

    • She is a great dog, watch for her story coming soon

      • oh I definitely will do!

  8. Oh, wow! How very adorable. When searching for a dog to adopt, I found one that was named hog dog (it was said that for the first few weeks after he was born, his ears went back as if he had been riding a Harley–LOL) and he looks almost exactly like Kiva, but smaller. Kiva is a great name! Is Kiva a boy or girl? So, so cute!!!!

    • Kiva is a girl. She is quite weird looking. Although you cannot tell she has no hair on her back, ears, top of her tail. She was an abused dog when I got her from a rescue. She had a lot of issues we worked through but her hair never came back. She is my angel!

  9. She is so adorable! OMG I want to rub her belly. (Is that weird?)

    I’d love to get a small dog, but Kitteh would never speak to me again if I did. Mainly because she’d never come out from under the bed. 🙂

    • No not weird. I rub her belly all the time. Kitteh is probably bigger than her. She weighs about 7 pounds. I have lived with both cats and dogs and they got along just fine. lol

      • I had to measure and weigh, but, Kitteh weighs 10 pounds, she’s 19 inches long from nose to the base of her tail and she’s 10 inches tall at the shoulder.

        Maybe I can start with a stuffed dog. I have a Taco Bell dog somewhere in the basement….hmmmm.

      • It seems as though we are measuring the same animal. Kiva measures about the same. Are you sure they are not twins?
