Kevin - The Mama put a string around my neck and we went for a walk. She had some string cheese in her hand and I WANTED it. I don't understand what I am supposed to do, but every once in a while, TM said "YES" and handed me a piece of cheese. I gulped it down and started bouncing as we walked. MORE, More, more please! No cheese. Just when I would start to give up, I would quit bouncing and TM would say "YES!" I would get more cheese. More bouncing, no cheese. Quit bouncing and trot, I hear "YES" and get cheese. I don't understand it, but I WANT the cheese.
Then TM would just stop. I would sit so I could watch her (that works in the kitchen, but not when I am on the string). TM said "stand". When I got on my feet, she said "YES" and I got cheese. I haven't figured out how to get cheese yet, but I sure like that "yes" word!
Lowri - FINALLY, I got to go for a walk with TM too. We trotted fast up the road and stopped periodically so TM could give me cheese. I think she is trying to learn how to throw because I am supposed to stand still while she backs up to the end of the leash. When she is there, I stand very still to give her the best possible target. She tosses me a piece of cheese. If I can catch it without moving, I get another one. It is a good game!
