This is my dog Hamish, I write a lot about him here at My Bones
He’s pretty great- a little naughty at times but as long as he doesn’t try to steal anyone’s car or create a fake profile on Facebook, I figure why stress it?
He’s a good dog and he doesn’t have a mean bone in his body.
Unlike some people I know- myself included.
So here’s something that Hamish does when I get in late.
He leaves his favorite toy in the window- it’s an ice cream cone and it smells like strawberries.
When I walk in I can see it there and I always go to the window and pick it up and say to Hamish, ” Look, it’s the best toy ever and it looks like an Ice Cream Cone- how great is that?”
If I put it down right away Hamish will pick it up and throw it at me- which if you’re not ready for it, that toy of his is solid plastic and it will hurt upon impact.
So I carry it around for a bit and when I see him I tell him I love it.
Then he carries it off to his stash where it stays until I find myself coming in late- but no worries because when I get it I’ll find the best toy in the world in the window.
My sweet reward from my sweet boy for coming home at last – a brilliant job well done.
