Up at dawn again. Same AM routine as day 2 so far. But that is somehow very comforting. Marching. Meager rations all day. Sometimes jailed (but with a bone to chew on which I really like). Another Rec break with dogs in the fenced area.
Today the CO started to play a game with me. She calls it "Eeeps and Kisses".
1. She put peanut butter on her palm and let me lick, said, "KISSES". If I was naughty and bit, she took the hand away and ignored me for a minute. Repeated often.
2. Next phase of game: she offered me her hand with peanut butter, CLOSED. How to get it? Smells good! I clawed and tried to chew, "EEP", she ignored me for a while. Bummer. Try again, "EEP", ignore again. Again. Hmmmmm. I licked peanut butter to eat it, I wonder? YES! I licked her hand and she open it and gave me peanut butter to lick, told me I was a good boy! Repeats often!
3. Now she offered me her closed hand but I don't smell peanut butter, I smell my food! Lick. Yes! I get food if I lick. But everyone ignores me if I use my teeth.
And another meaty bone at the end of a nice day outside.
The CO had leave tonight so the DI's and dogs are keeping me busy.
