Where the puppies prove Pavlov's theory

We wanted to celebrate Joe Stains and had Hamburger Sunday yesterday. Once again the puppies have proven training works and Pavlov was right.

I got them two Wendy's cheeseburgers and put them on plates...

'what is this thingy here on this plate?

smells like sompin good...


Then I broke the burgers up...
what this here on this plate...

looks familiar...


Ok so since the pups were wee babies they've never had people food either on a plate (God forbid their Papi would roll around in his grave if he had one!!!) or by hand. If they get anything like that it's in their food dish.  So I can leave food on a plate on an end table and not worry. ever.  Which comes to Pavlov.

They're so conditioned (trained) not to take food off a plate that they wouldn't eat the hamburgers!!! Either one of them. So I broke up the burger ...  Noper ... 'You said we couldn't Mommy.'

Finally I scraped it into their dishes and wolf dere it is!!!  They were like rabid dogs. 

WHAT IS THIS? THIS GOLDEN DELICIOUSNESS? WHY HAVE WE NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE? NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM  ......

So two things: 1st - my dogs are very well trained  2nd - I'm an idiot. I very well could have destroyed 8 years of training by trying to make them eat people food off a plate, with my blessing no less.

When the realization hit me I laughed but man... Idiot I R 1...

WE are VERY IMPRESSED! I, Daisy, will not take food off a plate unless invited. Kendra will wait.....for a few seconds, but Bella has NO manners and she's into it before it hits the floor! Even food on tables is not safe around her. She is learning to wait before eating her food.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Wow....I'm impressed. Either they are well trained, or their human is well trained!

That's OK, mom, the doggies know what's what even if you are a bit daft at times.

Slobbers,

Glad to see you enjoyed the cheeseburger at the end!
You are so well trained! I can eat everything I find on the kitchen floor!
Kisses and hugs

You guys have WONDERFUL party manners. I am that well trained unless Momma or dad releases me. One time at a party, the host put a tray of raw hamburgers on the step where I was sitting while he fussed with the grill. Never even sniffed in that direction...

Now the rest of the WDA...that is a WHOLE nother story!

Can Jack come visit and pick up some pointers?

Remington said...

Wow -- you are awesome!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Thanks. Momma needed to read your words of encouragement yesterday. She was VERY frustrated. Humans are so impatient!

Clooney said...

Wow, those is good canines! Impressive. (PS: Neytiri likes canines, she has a canine friend from next door that comes to visit her through the window.)

They are very well behaved, it would be a shame to destroy the good behaviour now. So Pam dog dishes only.

What well behaved pups! I sure would have wolfed those down if mom put it on the floor for me!

Nope it was for Joe :)
