Such a glossy lil pup...

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:01 PM

I don't get it. Are dogs unable to reach their paws or something? Someone enlighten me!

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:01 PM

I can't decide, which one should i eat? ah!!!

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:07 PM

I think it's the torture of choice: WHICH ONE TO EAT FIRST?!? :)

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:07 PM

Daaannnggggg That's one shiney doggie!! Are you using Pantene for Pups?

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:19 PM

That's a training technique. Puppy doesn't get to eat the treats until his owner says so. What a good pup!

This is just like that Devo song, Freedom of Choice!

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:30 PM

Make a choice! PLEEEEZE!!

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:35 PM

"maybe if i look at it long enough......uh"

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:35 PM

Aw, I recognize him from the Windows desktop.

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:39 PM

That's my girl! I'm glad you all like her. That's her practicing her "wait" command. There are usually little pools of drool under her face when I finally say "OK!" and let her enjoy the fruits of her labour :)

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:40 PM


That is one well trained dog you have - I am lucky if mine will leave something alone that is right in front of them. No way will she allow me to do that - but she is a beagle and they aren't known for waiting for food.

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:47 PM

Tara What a beautiful Black lab and so well behaved.. you and she should be proud.

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:49 PM

Leave it to the Japanese to take it a step further:


 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:50 PM

BWahahahaha Biscuit braclets.

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:50 PM

Not only is it a fantastically adorable set-up, this is also a gorgeous photograph! Kudos!

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:52 PM

Not only is THIS*

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 06:52 PM

...IT is also*

OMG its the "borodin's ass" paradigm!
"Which bale of hey shall i eated? This one...no this one! No this one..."

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 07:06 PM

Tara, OMG, she is BEAUTIFUL! You must be such a proud parent. :)

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 07:12 PM

And how about her dear knitted brow??? I am a fool for a knitted brow.

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 08:05 PM

omg....blinded by the glare of the shiney!!

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 08:29 PM

Oh that is one glossy dog. I love new puppy fur.

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 08:54 PM

Someone beat me to it -- but here is the Devo for the record:

In ancient rome
There was a poem
About a dog
Who found two bones
He picked at one
He licked the other
He went in circles
He dropped dead

Freedom of choice
Is what you got
Freedom from choice
Is what you want


 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 09:09 PM

Must be the toughest decision all day!!!

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 09:26 PM

Poor puppeh!!

This one or that one? This one or that one?? I'll watch until one of them moves and then it is SO mine.

This pup uses great product-I wish myb hair was that shiny!

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 09:33 PM

For hair that shiny, chew two biscuits a day.

I think I'll stick with flat dull hair, thanks!

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 09:37 PM

HAHAHAH! wow, that picture made me laugh out loud! but that video posted by Brandi made me laugh even harder! The woman encouraging her dog plus the dog looking so helpless and always licking his/her drool makes it even better!

wonderful post! what a prosh puppy! very cute ^__^

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 09:55 PM

Aww. In that picture, she looks so much like my Alfie. Except Alfie's part foxhound and has white paws. Also, Alfie would not be waiting to eat those biscuits. In fact, he'd probably chomp down on his own paws in his enthusiasm.

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 10:03 PM

I used to have a dog who would never tolerate this. She'd have eaten both biscuits and be looking for the rest of the box before I could get the camera out.

The cat was worse...if we ate in the living room, one of us would have to physically restrain the cat while the other ate, and then we'd swap, or else she'd just eat our food. Naughtiest imaginable cat.

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 10:34 PM

My husband kept trying to train our black lab mix to wait while he put a biscuit on her NOSE!! Talk about CRUEL! She never learned that one. But she does wait till we say "OK" before she goes for her food dish.

Beautiful puppy, BTW.

He's at my desktop...:-

Holy Cuteness
 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 11:10 PM

Yay Tara! Nice job with the training!
Dogs can (almost) always be taught such things. It takes patience and know-how and consistency and dedication and time. It's so worth it. Well-trained dogs are such a joy!

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 11:22 PM

I love this picture! Your girl looks exactly like mine, they could be twins. but I found mine abandoned in the streets of Chania/Greece. She also is fine with our cats, actually she once saved one on the beach and treats him ("Beach Boy" of course) as if he was her baby.

 |  Mar 04, 2008 at 11:50 PM

OMG, I love the sad pretty puppy eyes!

Anerable, as Meg would say!!

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 12:04 AM

This is a very smart training choice -- it's an excellent way to poison-proof the dog, so that she never just gobbles anything that smells good. You are a great caretaker, Tara!

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 01:18 AM

The huge floppy ears! The glossy coat! The 'omg please?!' eyes! TOO MUCH!

Very VERY nice job, Tara. :) How did you teach her to wait?

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 01:28 AM

She's lovely. I love her expression of anticipation and concentration!

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 02:46 AM

I love animals with shiny black fur. They're beeewwteeful.

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 04:23 AM


An-ti-ci-pay-yay-shun....it's makin' me wait

LOL @ Pantene for Pups

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 05:07 AM

My pups only have to heel for their bikkies. No idea how good they have it!

You know, when I make my baby Ash do this at work, people do tell me how mean I am. However, I have treats lined all the way up his legs. I think our record is 36 treats. He's got kinda spindly legs, so we simply can't fit any more.

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 05:18 AM

i LOOOOOOOOOVE black dogs.
and cute training exercise.
my dog kobe is trained to wait for "bikkies" unless i say, OK

Did you know BLACK DOGS are the last picked in adoption?
YES, it's twwoooooo. *cries*
PLEASe take a look at
to learn more

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 05:40 AM

How DO you teach a dog to wait? Since the "treat" is right there in front of 'em, the temptation must be UNBEARABLES!

Do you just pet them and fawn over them when they listen to you instead of chowing down? I really want to pet and fawn over this beautiful, shiny girl.

I've never trained a doggie before, though, so I don't know how it works.

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 05:55 AM

Awww. What a good puppy. Look at the screwed up eyebrows. You can see the effort. <3

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 06:10 AM

People, this is why you have to follow the directions on the shampoo bottle: lather, rinse, repeat. If you don't REPEAT, your hairs will not be so shiny.

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 06:21 AM

T, you can start teaching "wait" by having the dog on a leash and the treat a bit farther away.

Yay for black dogs! I have one myself, and he is the best.

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 07:03 AM

Hillary... Obama... Hillary... Obama...

[LOL! Either way, it's TREATS FOR EVERYBODY! - Ed.]

 |  Mar 05, 2008 at 08:05 AM

I was a roommate with a black lab back in the day. She could do the "biscuit on the nose" trick. The amazing part wasn't just the demonstration of patience (or blind obedience depending on your perspective) but when you said "get it!" she would {slo-mo} jerk her nose from underneath the biscuit then chomp it while it was still in mid-air. {/slo-mo} One of many tricks in her repertoire! What a great dog.
