Sitting for Treats


Please have a treat. Please have a treat.


If you do not give me a treat in 2 seconds or less, you will pay for making me sit.


Have to do my warm-up stretches before I try that sitting thing.

I am sort of hungry – but then I am always ready for food.

So I could try that sit and look cute routine and hope for a treat.

Or I could just launch into Flying Frankie.

    At least your hu-dad doesn’t make the Herd practice the “So Long Farewell” song from Sound of Music to get YOUR treats. We have to line up and then come forward one at a time and then take our treat back in line and wait for “release.” Not going so well, but we do line up and comeforward one by one…then we leave.

    (Ayla)Hmmm ….. Me’n Ice have to ASK for our treats, verbally.

    Sitting for treats is overrated

    I must say Q-tip has an innocent yet serious look; Queen really looks like you’ll pay if she doesn’t get a treat while carrying an innocent look; Frankie is cute and silly.

    Oh Q! You are looking very soft and white today!

    They should be given all the treats now! All dogs should be given treats 24/7. At least, that’s OUR opinion!

    Ha ha ha! Frankie, I have to wonder if you and Rusty are related. The direct approach is often the best way to get what you want!

    BOL – I think Monty and Frankie would get along just fine!

    All of you are so adorable. You deserve lots and lots of treats. Great big hugs and kisses to the herd.

    Hmmm…. Flying Frankie sure is the best of the techniques!
    Kisses and hugs
