What? It’s Off-Season

What?

What?

Since it is June and winter is long gone, I should have packed away my gloves. Instead, I left them out and they became a siren call to my pup, Pal.

Pal is a funny boy. He is lavished with attention but has recently learned he can get even more with his antics. He has started going from room to room and then walking by us with a treasure, like a sock or scarf or oven mitt or even a pair of pants carried by one pant leg with the other dragging behind. He doesn’t try to hide his behavior. He slowly walks by, shifting his gaze to make sure he has been noticed. He knows how to get a reaction.

I want to be mad, but he is just so funny that I laugh instead. Pal is a clown. He knows we will go over to him and sternly tell him to “put it down.” This will go on until he releases his grip or is bribed with a treat.

I know…I know…I am not a dog whisperer! I know not to reward his behavior. At least I have him shake my hand before he gets his snack.

Recently, my winter glove was his treasure of choice. He seemed to be thinking, “What? You don’t need this. It’s off-season.” Lesson learned…by me!

  3. That’s a good looking dog. I really enjoyed your tale of his misbehavior. He doesn’t look a bit guilty.
