You can’t fool a dog.
Mom puts my harness on me for a trip to the dog food store. Of course I sit still, except for my wagging tail, while she slips it over my head and under my legs. I am not stupid. The faster she gets it on, the faster we can get to food, treats and toys I want. When she gets my harness for walk time, I again do all I can to help her get that dang thing on so I can get out and see what is going on in the neighborhood. But, when I see her get my harness for a trip to my doctor, I run to another room and hide before she even knows I saw her. I hear her walking from room to room–calling my name. Loudly. Of course she cannot find me. That is the point of hiding ! How do I know the difference between something about to happen that I want and something that will not please me? It is one of my many talents! One Mom does not seem to appreciate.
