Hi everyone, Katie here.
Phew! It's been a long week here in the townhouse without my blogging assistant... I mean my girl. Since she's been out at the Coldwater Creek home offices training for this new job of hers, I decided to do a little training of my own. It's just me and Gloman here and I'm pleased to report I have made considerable progress in his training.
Get this. I have Gloman trained to say "Salmon" whenever I jump up on the sofa next to him and purr. I also have him trained to get up off the sofa and go to the kitchen to give me "Salmon" every time, in response to my purr cure, he says "Salmon." I'm both surprised and pleased by his progress. He's a very quick study for a boy, a boy who likes dogs no less. In order to consistently reinforce this optimum behavior, I have made it a priority to promptly run to the kitchen whenever he says "Salmon" so that he may give me "Salmon."
Cesar Milan, the dog whisperer, says it's very important to reward desired behavior. And since I DESIRE "Salmon," I feel it's critical to reward Gloman each time I get him to SAY "Salmon" by running to the kitchen FOR "Salmon."
Just wait til Glogirly comes home and gets a load of this! She's going to be so impressed. I'm sure she'll want to reward me with more "Salmon."
Special note to Glogirly:
Despite what Gloman says,
1. He is NOT training me, rather I'm training him.
2. I am not furring up your pillow.
3. I really do miss you.
4. I'm a total princess ...but you already knew that.
