Those of you who are, or have been, owned by pets know that some of the funniest moments occur when you’re sans camera – as it so happened this morning when I was giving Mister B the usual command of putting his playthings into the toybox. He is always good at following through – with or without treats – but today, for whatever reason, he kept flinging his stuff around the room. Finally, upon deciding to cooperate with a stuffed rat, he chose to jump into his doggie bed with Mr. Rat still in his mouth rather than dropping it into the toybox that was nearby. Not willing to let him have the last say, I instructed him one last time, “IN. THE. BOX!” and wouldn’t you know? With a casual toss of his head the little smarty pants chucked the rat right into the pile of toys without missing a beat. Whaaat?
For that he earned 5 kibble treats. For dinner tonight he’ll have tuna fish. Happy 1st birthday Mister B!
