We all go through it, training. Sit, stay, down, retrieve, fetch, wait, heel, roll over, get me a beer. Yea we have all been there, mom's and dad's training us to be the best we can be. BUTT what the parents don't know is we really are training them. Oh sure we follow their commands and directions. Without a us barking a word we have trained them to do what we want. Case in point: While at my buddy Bert's house, Bert's ball went under some furniture where he could not get his Golden butt under there to get it back. What were we to do. Enter my very well trained MOM.
"That's right MOM it's right under there."
"Goose you have a very well trained mom."
"Bert buddy I have been training her my whole life."
"Dude we didn't even have to ask her to get my ball, she just got down here."
"The key, Bert my friend, is constant reinforcement. Well that and lots of love, kisses and cuddles. It is VERY important to have a well trained MOM."
"True that Goose."
Friends I would like to point out that there are TWO balls totally in reach for Bert and me right behind Bert. Yet that is not the ball we wanted. A well trained MOM knows this and will retrieve the one we want.
As you can see MOM got Bert his ball. Now she is making sure there is not a wayward stick under there for me. Hehehhe. So friends go ahead let them think they are "training" us. We know the real truth. Gotta go now, MOM needs a beer.Blessings,
