I'm a dog and I'm smart. So why do I always get fooled by the same thing?
My favorite thing is getting treats; my least favorite thing is getting a bath followed by getting groomed. Yet I always fall for the same trick. My mommy buys this very special treat for me - Grandma Lucy's Meatballs. She knows this is my favorite so the only time she gives it to is when I'm going to get a bath or while I'm being groomed. I have to jump into the bath tub in order to get the treat. I get fooled every time. I want the treat, so when she goes to THE closet, I run into the bathroom and jump in the tub. I get the treat; I also get the bath. That pits something I love against something I hate. You would think that I would "get it".
To make matters worse, she makes me wear a terry cloth bathrobe with a green turtle on the back. It's humiliating. I know I look cute, but still. Then again I get another treat, but is it worth it. Does the treat win over the bath? I guess it does because I fall (or let myself fall) for it every time.
