Okay, have to share. DH and I went out to dinner at our favorite Chinese buffet (because that's how much we felt like celebrating Easter ... yeah) and I happened to get a fortune cookie with a fortune that referred to creativity. Since I've been doing a LOT of thinking about the creative process right now, I thought this was a cool one and wanted to save it.
I stuck it in my pocket and at home, I was afraid of losing it so I set it on the table where I keep my laptop. Puppy immediately came over and tried to eat it (it must have smelled like cookie, I guess, although he still likes to eat paper scraps. Darn oral fixation). I rescued it from inside his mouth, all wet but still intact, and put it back on the table. It was right next to me and I had my eye on it.
10 minutes later, Puppy scratched at the door, asking to go outside. I got right up and opened the door for him. Our living room door opens out onto a screened porch room ("Arizona room") so when I let them out I have to go through the screen room and open the outside door. Gwennie followed me out, but Puppy didn't.
I came inside to see him chewing rapidly and swallowing my fortune. He never wanted to go out in the first place ... the whole thing was a set up to get me to leave the fortune. **** dog is too smart for his own good.
Yes, and right here is where you are thinking I need to do more structured training. Curse you all. Right now he's in his pen, thinking about what he did.
Oh, and other funny thing. At the Chinese buffet, we ran into the owner/manager of a Vietnamese restaurant I have been going to for 10 years. DH and I know her by name and she knows us well enough that she walks up to us at the restaurant and tells us what we want to order. She came over and hugged me. I felt like I was cheating on her with another restaurant.
