Dog is thinking "WHAT are you up to now?"
"Ah, it involves food. That's different. Look how obedient I am. I AM ALREADY SITTING AND YOU HAVE NOT EVEN ASKED ME TO."
"So sitting wasn't it?"
We practise. Dog is bright and gets the idea, I think. We step up. She is in the kitchen. I am in the sitting room. Pheep, I go. Pheeeeep.
Dog is not convinced.
I try the other way.
Still waiting, and looking noble. Dog thinks "Why can't you just yell, like normal?"
That problem over, we migrate outside. If we must, says dog. I leave dog in front garden. Wait, dog, wait!
Good dog. Amazing what you can do with a labrador when you have food about your person.
