Despite everything, Duke’s getting it through his head that everyone is not going to give him treats every time they go in the kitchen. He doesn’t bother to get up in the morning with me unless I call him. If I call him, he figures “treats” are coming. Otherwise, he’ll sleep on the bed until Garry gets up. The same thing when I go into the kitchen in the evening. He will stay “asleep” (he really isn’t asleep — he’s faking it) until I call him. But if I don’t call him, at night (guaranteed treat time), he will remind me of my obligation. Good boy!
