|Playing or Avoiding?????|
There are times I am really really good. When either Mommy #1 or Mommy #2 calls, I come running. And that is without the added incentive of a treat! Or I am asked to DROP something and I do it - again without the PROMISE of a TREAT.
But then there are times when - well - I just don't listen. Mind you, I HEAR - I just don't LISTEN. So Mommy will CALL for me to come downstairs (let's ignore the fact I SHOULDN'T be upstairs to being with), and I will NOT come. I get to the top of the stairs and just STAND there looking at her with a big SMILE on my face. I stand there until Mommy comes for me (is SHE GROWLING at me?) and then I run down the hall. Or sometimes I RUN downstairs right past Mommy's feet almost tripping her with my lightning speed.
It usually ends up with Mommy asking me if I HEARD her? Yes, I tell her with my roundest, liquidiest and most innocentest EYES. Then I tilt my head, ever so beguilingly, BUT I WASN'T LISTENING!!!!
