High Five-ish

HIGH FIVE, Noodles. . .

Yeah, I hear this every once in a while. I am not sure what it means but I do know what is expected of me. You can see in this picture what the command is for - I am to raise my paw in a kind of salute. Normally my humans would MATCH my paw with theirs and call it a high five.

As opposed to a LOW FIVE, I am guessing

I do it because I receive two things I dearly LOVE in return for the HIGH FIVE: Treats and Praise. I will do almost anything for those two things. TREATS more than praise, although there is nothing I love more than pleasing my MOMMYS.

And it always makes the humans SMILE when I perform my MARVELOUS HIGH FIVE trick. I am guessing it looks amusing and cute. Not sure they notice the PRECARIOUS balance I have to do on THREE legs rather than my more normal FOUR legs.

In any case, I do it and I do it well. And it makes me HAPPY to do so.

HAPPY THING #73: The High Five

Hey Noodles ... I can High Five, too! But mama said it's a special talent because I'm the only one out of five that can do it! It's good to know other pugs have this special talent, too!!!!!

Love, Peyton

We love the high five too--Fozzie does it exuberantly every time the really good treats come out :) It was a part of our dance routine when we took a doggie dance class together, so it's got a very strong reward history for him :)

WOW Noodles you are such a Pro at doing the High Five, I am made to do High fives for treats too, I can also do "sit", "stay", "paw", "lay down", "roll-over", "kiss" , "dance" and various other degrading puggy moves for delicious foodables!
You are so very beautiful Noodles, that photo is just gorgeous, you have the cutest paws!
Love and licks from your Frank xxxxx

I don't do a HIGH five. Momma just says "gimme five", and I slap her paw. Maybe that's the low five? I don't know, I'm confused!

5 to you! It's very important to keep moms happy. We think we'll take the treat over praise too

I wanna see a video of you doing your "high five", Noodles! I do a similar move called "Shake", which usually gets me a treat so I pretty much do it all the time. :)
