Training people by Morris

She thinks I work for cookies.  She thinks I should be a model.
She is a dork.

I'm the con artist you see.  I know she has cookies in her pocket and she wants me to sit nice and pretty on a rock so she can take my portrait.

She says 'sit' and waves a cookie around.  I stand and stare at her, then lick my lips.  If I frustrate her enough, she'll give me the cookie.
Then I act like I'm in trouble, I drop my ears and pretend I have no IDEA what 'sit' is.
Lick my lips once more to let her know, I KNOW those cookies are mine!  She is still saying 'Sit Morris, SIT!'
So I go ahead and sit and stare at her feet.  Not what she wanted.  But I'm watching to see if she moves at all.  I want the cookie at all costs!

I get the cookie.
I eat the cookie.
Then I run and jump and go sniffing, doing what dogs do best.
Yes I 'watered' some rocks and then of course did what SHE had wanted me to do all along...
I did a most 
Noble
Pose....
I got a second cookie for that.
It was a 2 cookie outing.  Pretty good don't you say?

One of these days, I'll actually have her trained.
But some humans are just so hard to work with!

Oh Morris you are just too adorable and so amazingly clever at training the humans, your secret is safe with us :-)
