Biscuit Jar





A certain chocolate Lab I occasionally take care of, loves biscuits. One look at
him and youíd think the last thing he needs is a biscuit. True, he is a bit rotund,
But heís a real tail wagger. I suspect I give him more biscuits than his owners do,
but heís happy.

When he goes out to lie in the grass, or to do his business, sometimes the housecat
will accompany him. When the dog is ready to come back in, he expects to receive
a biscuit. I thought I had trained him well. In reality, itís the other way around.
The cookie jar sits on a windowsill near the front door. This jar has a dog head top
that barks when itís lifted up. Thankfully the barking has gotten more muted with time.

After my canine friend comes indoors, he immediately stands, or actually dances,
facing the biscuit jar in anticipation. He totally enjoys each one he gets. One biscuit
every time he comes inside.

Sometimes the dog will accompany me to the door when I let in the cat. This one time
the cat dashes past both of us. I look at the dog, who is dancing. I crack up.

ďNo, it doesnít work that way. You donít get a biscuit when the CAT comes in!Ē I say,
giggling.

He tries this trick on me when I walk in the door too. I think itís time for retraining
one of us.

First of all, thank you for your review of "Listen to the Quiet." Secondly, I loved your article about your lab friend and the biscuit jar. My husband and I have always had dogs so I do understand exactly what you mean. Great story writing! Laura

A good light snapshot that reminds me of a cartoon of two rats in the Skinner box. One says to the other: "I've got this guy well-trained. Every time I pull this lever he gives me some wheat!"

I love this! It reminds me of our big pups! Granny Gee
