a treat out of the Boy's hand. You have to understand that this is a really, really, REALLY big deal for me. The Boy is kind of scary to me. He's really TALL--6 foot 7 inches--and has big size 15 feet! When he looms over me, well, let's just say I head for the hills!
The other day the Mom and the Boy were calling me. Come, Burt, Come! I would go from one bedroom into the other, pausing to look at the Boy holding the treat. Every time I'd pause a little longer. Then the Boy broke off a piece of treat and tossed it to me. Nom, nom, nom... Finally I crept forward and snagged the entire treat out of the Boy's hand. Ta DAH!!!!
So, today, the Mom had her MRI for her knee. The Dad went with her. So it was just me, Dixie, Ozzy and the Boy left in the house. I REALLY had to make a dookie... sooooooooooo I blasted past the Boy and out into the back yard. Whew!
When I came back in the Boy said "Good Boy, Burt." And he offered me a treat. Which I took. Right away. No hesitation. No running around. Nope. Just nom, nom, nom, nom.... YUMMY!
Burt, you should have made a dookie right on the carpet and then grabbed the treat out of the boys hand - why waste the energy to go outside? Heck with size 15 shoes he would have tripped over his own feet if he tried to catch you - BOL
Burt... YYYYYAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY !!!!!!!!!!!!
WELL DONE Sweet Boy..... I know how hard it was to trust.
