I was making my lunch in the kitchen this morning and Emmy was to my left and Spencer was behind me.

Well Spencer has no idea what is wrong or not.

That's hilarious! It's so funny how they "know" sometimes when they're doing the wrong thing (or someone is, anyhow)


I have a funny Gracie story- She knows that there are certain things she isn't allowed to eat - we had a big bout of coprophagia when she was little (years ago) and spent a month using deter and training (leave it) to get over it.


Anyhow, a few weeks ago I put some stale saltines in the bird feeder and was walking around the yard and I look at Gracie and she's got her head down and is drooling like crazy. I actually thought she was having some sort of fit or something. I went to her and she put this spit covered saltine in my hand. Must have fallen out of the feeder.

I was so embarrassed when Gracie did that but my vet said it's very common. Have you tried Deter? It worked for Gracie but I can see how you'd have a problem - since Emmy is sneaky while you're at work. Gracie was in a crate so it was pretty easy.


It is soooo Awesome about your classes! Seems like you're flying through this- You'll have to tell us all about it!!!

Gracie and I had 6 - one hour classes so that sounds right. Gracie loved the classes. She'd get frustrated with me though when I wasn't clear on my commands. She does this "no" sit where she'll sit and not move until I am clear with her and she knows what I want.
