Hey, Dad, I need you to sit very still.  Sit.  Stay.  You know.

Now take that left hand and start scratching.

    You’re dad is so well trained! I can’t believe he knows Sit and Stay. Does he know “put the macbook away”? I am working on that with Mom. It’s not going very well.

    Dad will have to drop the camera and the beer in the other hand. Good luck getting that to actually happen.

    Years of training are required to get your dad to this point. Make sure you keep him practicing a LOT!

    Wow! You have your dad very well trained. I need to work on my humans. My mom loves cuddling too much. In fact it’s hard to get away from her. And my dad doesn’t like to cuddle at all. I have to be really, really, really cute to get cuddles from him. Maybe you should share some of your training secrets.

    Good job, Dad. You might get your CGC soon (if Queen Natasha approves).
