climbing the mountain

My friend Dawson climbs Mt. Pappy, and I thought that was so cool that I decided to learn to climb my own Mt. Pappy. I've got it down pretty good, Dawson!
Every night when my dad watches TV, I climb the mountain.I stretch out really f--a--r to steady myself and then I give him kisses so that he'll notice me.
Then we have a stare-down. Well, it's not really quite like that because he doesn't look at me. He stretches his neck to look around me and watch that silly TV.
Then I have to talk to him to get his attention. Eventually, he notices me, but can you believe he asks for a KISS in the middle of our conversation? Warning: you will hear a weird sound in the video. It's coming from my dad who is drumming his fingers on the end table when I talk to him. I don't know why he does that, and it's kind of an annoying habit.

Sometimes I get treats of dog snackies and sometimes I get cheese and sometimes I get a bone in the cupboard. I'm not picky about what reward I get, as long as I get something.

Dawson says that you have that down. You look just like him when he climbs. Our Mt. Pappy wears shorts and barefeet also. They even have the same type of chair.
I have to let you know that I am a female so I would be a Queen like Cleopatra.

Show him what you want? Humans sure are a dense bunch.

My mom can't read my mind either!

But as long as we get treats and walkies and attention, I guess we've got it pretty good.

Ah, now I see who wears the pants in your family, Petra. It's YOU! A bat of the eye here, a whimper there, and you had your Dad eating out of the palm of your paw. Or should I say you were eating out of the palm of your Dad's hand? Either way, you got what you wanted :-)

Fellow Pop Climber,

Your great at climbing Mt.Pappy! If I tried to climb my Daddy...I'd get in trouble! Your really good at showing your daddy what you want too! Mommy says that doggies are so smart for knowing where there treats are! I mean, do they think we DON'T know where they are? Come on! We take the humans to the treats! BOL!

Wow, Petra! You really have your Dad trained well! It's amazing how you have taught him to go straight to the treat jar. Impressive!


Lady Kaos said...

Whoa! That never works for me! I do the whining thing too and they ignore me so by the time they tell me to show them what I want I forget. I need you to come train my parents!
