06.22.2022 Bentley

Ordinarily he looks the other way when I point a camera at him, especially with a flash.  But he had just done his business outside which is followed by a reward treat (part of his house training) so had his mind on one thing and one thing alone.

Of course, he always has his mind on that one thing.

  3. Sending a pet for Bentley’s nose–and the rest of him. He looks as though he won’t bite were I to try.

  4. Wie schön, daß die Reise jetzt gerade stattfindet. Das Café und die Kirche sehen einladend aus, schön, daß ihr etwas Zeit hattet, Euch die Beine zu vertreten.

    What’s his favorite treat? Dixie Rose’s was potted organic wheat grass from the grocery store. If I brought a fresh batch into the house, she’d come out of a deep sleep and start begging.

    • He goes nuts for Greenies and Oradents which we give him for his teeth. Often he will get one when we are leaving him alone for awhile. That said, he is crazy about all food which is challenging for us. He was very overfed by his previous owner and has never got over the idea that we feed him what he needs rather than what he wants. I guess Dixie Rose’s nose was working while she was sleeping. Bentley’s ears do and anytime we start preparing something in the kitchen he comes running from wherever he was sleeping.

    I understand the focus of some dogs for food Steve, it’s tricky but can sometimes work in our favour😀

    • Bentley is smart and although extremely food driven he has learned manners very well. He begged at the table when we first got him but no longer. He sits and waits for the okay before moving to his food bowl. I can hold a Greenie over his nose and he’ll wait until I say okay. Good dog. 🙂 Our neighbor could balance a biscuit on his dog’s nose before she would take it. That might be pushing things with Bentley. 😀
