Man, I must really be getting old. During my morning constitutional, I came upon a cricket, and Bob must’ve spotted it the same time as I did ‘cuz he quickly barked, “Leave it!” And you know what? I did. I just left the doggone thing right there in the grass. Am I getting senile?
Yesterday, Bob had what he called an “epiphany.” (He likes to use big words; it makes him feel important.) You know how much trouble he’s been having getting that darn training collar on me. He tries to bribe me with treats, but I’m too quick for him, and I usually snatch up the treats before he can get the collar on. Well, yesterday, the bag of treats was almost empty, and there was nothing left but a handful of crumbs, so that was the bribe. However, it took me longer to lick up the crumbs than it does to snatch up a couple of whole pieces, so while I was busy licking, Bob was able to slip on the collar without my hardly even noticing. “Woof!” (That’s Canine for “Eureka!”) That was his epiphany. The only problem he has now is getting me to go out the door ‘cuz I wanna stay behind and lick the floor clean of all the crumbs that have fallen.
