I’ve never told Clover
well, okay, maybe once
I suppose every dog needs to hear that positive reinforcement more than I offer it. What I’ve noticed is that when the dogs are lying around being no trouble at all, it doesn’t occur to me to offer a word of encouragement to help them know that lying there causing no problem is a desirable activity for the alpha in their lives.
I need to remember that for all the dogs in our house. “Good dog!” Yes, I need to call that out all around the house when I catch them being good.
Once or twice is all it takes, before it’s no longer a lie. I have good friends who have lied to me like that.
My laugh of the day!
I don’t tell Tilly that often enough either. I tell her “Be a good dog,” all the time. But she so often is and I forget to tell her.
She’s not alone.
June at Tweetspeak were made for you, Polo, and Clover!
Oh! I tell mine this all the time. Suggestive logic.
It gets more wags and licks than the opposite.
(great poem, btw)
