Shameless Beggars!

My husband has located the doggie treat bowl right next to my computer desk. So when I sit down at the computer, here is the usual sight (Try to ignore my messy closet in the background):  beggars

James  is quite liberal with the treats, so they’ve come to expect free hand-outs.  Of course nothing in life is free; they all have to do a trick. Sasha (the Samoyed) sits pretty or speaks (which is really no trick for her; she likes to hear herself “sing”). The 2 black labs on the other hand rarely bark, even on command. Only when there’s someone at the door or walking by, do they alert us. They have their other talents though. Lacona, the old lady of the group (on the left) also sits pretty and shakes. She’s old and in pain, but when it comes to food, she suddenly becomes more limber and energetic. Jewel, the performer, is a bit too bulky to sit pretty. She will roll over or jump pretty high for her treat. And she’ll kiss you if you’re lucky. She’s definitely a daddy’s girl and usually just kisses him.

By the way, in case you’re wondering, “Sit pretty” means they sit up with their 2 front paws raised. It’s so cute.
