In the cheap thrills category: this morning I wanted to do faces and feet on the big girls, and I asked Jay to feed Rush a steady stream of treats (chicken heart bits) while I did a quick pass at his feet too. He liked the treats so much that he kept trying to get up on the grooming table while I was grooming Dancer and Elly! At one point, he leapt over from a chair four feet away.
Yesterday, I did his toenails while Deena fed him treats; today, he let me touch his toes with the Dremel without even moving his feet.
Score a few points for classical conditioning.
