Attention Span

Funny thing about canines and our attention span. Sometimes, we can focus on something for a very, very, very long time until we get what we want. And, sometimes, we fail to notice a significant detail. Take this little story to understand what we mean.

begging forever
Please, please, please, I have been begging forever for you to come down and play a game of chase.
go over there
Oh, fine, I guess you aren’t going to give up. Go over there and we will chase.
game on
And the game is on!
how long
How long until he notices we aren’t chasing him any more?

    Mom sez: And how long DOES it usually take him to realize there’s nobody chasing him? Just curious.
