And then she pulls a stop drop and roll when you approach…or in other words a “rub my belly” stance.
After a thorough rubbing down, she is then presented with her treat. Little Way usually comes running when Lucky is at my door, he loves to give her the treat. When he was into the miming thing; it was interesting to watch him explain exactly what Lucky needed…
Picture him running up to me with his fingers (such as a peace sign, but palms towards his face) making a motion to his lips and then pointing to the dog. I said, what is it Way, does the dog want a cigarette (while making the same motion he did). He said “yeah yeah!” of course not knowing what I was saying. After seeing Lucky take a ‘doggy snack’ I can see what he really meant!
I guess the word got out that I had snacks for vulnerable dogs because Sir Greedy showed up at my door one day.
Greedy and Greedier earned their nicknames because unlike Lucky the good dog, they snatch their snack from my hand, barely chew it, swallow it, and then run back to the door for more. It does no good to ignore them as they just make themselves at home.
I finally have to make a quick move towards the door and since they have not warmed up to me completly they take off…only to show up a little later of course…acting all suave and cool.
As a shout out to Ralphie Alphie (Part I and Part II) I was given his long lost relative yesterday by Seeto. She came to me and wanted medicine for the poor little thing. Since Fiona from the Harbour started the whole doggie 911 rescue, I guess Seeto figured all foreigners have a special animal wellness voodoo, so I took the wee puppy in and promptly named her FIONA!!! Hee hee
