We have kind of a ritual at our house. Mom and Dad have soup & sandwiches for lunch every day. They save the carrots (and some bites of chicken) for me and Stanley. Then we review our commands and get the carrots and chicken bites for treats. Mom usually has me do the commands that I like to ignore her on cuz she knows I will NOT ignore her for carrots and chicken bites! She says this habit helps keep us sharp.
Today, after we did our commands and ate all the carrots and chicken bites, mom and dad put us in a 3 minute DOWN-STAY. We haven't practiced them in quite some time.
Sometimes when we practice our STAYS, mom likes to use the time to snap a few pictures. She says it is the only time we stay still long enough.
Me and Stanley find the whole thing rather boring. As a matter of fact, we can't even keep our eyes open. Zzzzzzzzzzz . . .
