    Touch doesn’t beg. When I go near the treat box, she just goes through a routine of sitting, laying, and coming–all the things she gets treats for doing. It works.

    I wish Biscuit could read this today! She has been on a loud and non-ending barking stage. She wants what she wants when she wants it!

      My oldest daughter has four (!) dogs—two miniature Dachshunds, a chocolate Lab, and a little mutt. The doxies are noisy as all get out, love to bark. And of course when they start up, it isn’t long before the other two join in. I don’t think the little stinkers even want anything. They just love to shout, “Here I am!”

      Haha…that’s true! Chula is my grand-dog, the much spoiled four-legged kid belonging to my son and his wife. My daughter-in-law is a nurse, and one of her elderly patients was upset one day because she had to go to a nursing home and none of her family members would take her dog—Chula. The old woman was worried Chula wouldn’t be adopted from the pound because of her age. Long story short, Ashley (my DIL) didn’t make any promises, but she said she’d talk to my son about it. They went to meet Chula, and she ran right to my son and jumped into his arms. That was that. They brought the old girl home and never looked back. She’s pampered in her old age, goes to the doggy spa. lol They’ve had her about three years now, so she’s 13 and in relatively good health except for her diabetes. They give her insulin shots every day. Other than that, she’s healthy. And so sweet!
