OK, so then. One of the very first things we taught the Mag-a-roo was that after you go outside and go potty, you come back in, race around the living room a bit, then stare at Mom (or Dad) until you get a treat. Like so:
"What are you guys doing?"
It didn't take long at all for Maggie to know exactly where the treats are kept, and to go over there after we stare at Mom for a minute.
Is Maggie good, or what? Oh, not because she's doing the "sit" thing - I couldn't care less about that! I mean look at that SAD LOOK she's doing!!! YIKES! So young, but so skilled! (For the record, I heard Dad say that's the look that melted his and Mom's hearts and made them choose her.)
Anyway, the girls' treats are kept on the counter; mine are in the magic cold box. You know. If anyone wanted to come over and give us each a little something.
Sometimes Mom takes the treats somewhere else and makes us pose for them.
|"You want us by the front door? Really?"|
"Does she have treats, Zimmie?"
"What are we doing now, you guys?"
Like Cam has said, Maggie's a quick study and is great at following our lead. Here we all are, by the front door.
|Please don't fault us for being cooperative; Mom had treats!|
Apparently, there's good lighting there. Whatever.
Sometimes Mom likes to go up on the steps to get a different perspective:
|Notice the girls are both sitting down. Good girls!|
Mom asked us to sit and smile.
I opted to smile and let the girls cover the "sit" part. Of course I still got a treat, in case you were wondering. Look at my FACE! How could she resist?!? (Besides, when you're 13-1/2 and have stiff joints, you get a few perks around here.)
That's a wrap for Photo Finish Friday! Which portrait do you like best?
Have a great weekend!
