The Hot Dog Test And Some Sappy StuffWell my puppy graduated from puppy training class.
He is a golden retriever. If any of you have one you know how crazy mad they are about food.
His final test was kinda simple but, of all the dogs in the class, mine was going to have the toughest time.
The instructor came over, had him sit, then held a complete hot dog in front of his nose.
He was not supposed to eat it.
Every fibre of his being wanted that hot dog.
Drool was dripping.
His entire body was quivering.
His eyes were eating that hot dog.
That was not the test though.
The real test came next.
I called his name.
And he turned completely around, sat, and looked at me!!!!!!
Just like was supposed to!!!!
Yes he got lots of treats/hugs after that.
Never one to let a lesson go by, I turned to my two teenagers and said.
Me :"Are you guys proud of him?"
Them :"Yes Dad"
Me: "You know that feeling you have inside you right now?"
Them: "Yes Dad"
Me: "That is the feeling I get whenever I see your smiling faces"
Awwwww. Dad is such a sap eh!
