Positive Reinforcement

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me, Dave.  Remember way, way, way back in August I showed you the batch of Road Kill Sneaky Snakes my mom made for me from Pumpkin Oat Cookie dough?  I sure liked them a whole lot!  Some of them were extra thin and crispy and I liked them best.  Mom decided to make a new batch of cookies over the weekend; I didn't want to push my good fortune, but I sure was hoping she'd make them super crunchy!  I did my best mind-meld on her ... and look!

Pumpkin Oat Super Crackers!

Look at those!!!  They're HUGE!  Mom rolled and rolled and rolled and got them super thin!  She rolled some of them so thin that ... well ...

"Let's take a closer look at that one, Mom!"

See how thin that one is?  Take another look!

"Dave... needs... a pumpkin... oat... cookie!!!"

I'm pretty sure that hole helped with my mind-meld message.  Mom let me have a cookie right off the cooling rack!

"Good Mom!  Good girl!"
Pat, pat, pat!

It's important to give your bipeds positive reinforcement.

Ha woo.

What a good girl your momma is!

The Websters said...

Oh yes! Did you give her extra snuggles so she knows to keep repeating the behavior?


The Websters said...

PS. That's probably my favorite pic in a very long time.

Random Felines said...

They certainly look yummy! You are so good to your mommy....she needs a little pat on the head to know how much you love her....

GOOSE said...

Oh Dave those do look very tempting. Yummy goodness for sure. I'll take two dozen please. And look at you giving your more the "good girl" pat. Way to reinforce that she will make more, they love that kind of stuff.

Dave I am cracking up pal at your positive reinforcement pic of your paw and mum. Brill. They look like crisps or you call chips. Mums' got to give them a new name and patent them. Well yummy. Have a marvelous Monday guys.
Best wishes Molly
