Counter Surfing

Counter surfing is a most important skill to develop as a canine. It doesn’t matter whether the target is meat, vegetables or even fruit. Yes, fruit.


Mmmmm – strawberry.

What? You think strawberries are a strange target?


Can I have more strawberries?

And if you can’t reach strawberries, there are always other fruit offerings in the kitchen.


Uh, no, Natasha, that one you can’t have.

    People laugh because my Leena loves to eat bananas, turnips (whole), and other assorted off fruits and veggies. She eats some that I don’t even eat. Crazy 4 legged hu-mon!

    Yep! My counter surfer snatched a brownie from a plate I was taking to a church dinner. I rearranged the brownies and took them anyway. No harm to the snatcher who looked very pleased with herself!
