I get tickled at my dogs. Bet you didn't know that, right? Yeah, yeah.
Anyway, when we go to bed they get a treat. These treats are dispensed in the same order every night. Over time, they have learned to line up in that order from my right to my left and wait with eager eyes and quivering tails. Jazi, Joey, Sammy, Lola on the edge of the bed, and Max is beside my feet on the floor. It works very well. Occasionally Joey or Sammy will get in the line out of order. When that happens, I just look at them, treats in my hand, and say, "Something's not right. Is everyone where they are supposed to be?" Once is a while I say it twice, but most times, they change places very quickly! They don't want to waste time getting the treat! It is so funny to watch them.
This first shot is bad, as I grabbed the camera without paying attention to the settings. Can you believe the setting for "snow" doesn't work well inside the house?? However, this is how they usually line up on the bed.
Look at Jazi licking her lips in anticipation. I changed the setting, and I couldn't get the line up like that again. As you see in the next pic, they were getting antsy waiting for their treat. Lola looks like she has given up!
Meanwhile, Max in on the floor, waiting very patiently. The reason his tail is a blur? It is wiggling like crazy as he waits for the treat.
And once they get the treat .... "OK, we're done, now let me find the best space on the bed!"
I love these little guys. Betcha didn't know that, either. :)
