There was a packet of her favourite biscuits up on a bookshelf and she wanted one but she couldn’t reach them. She sat underneath the bookshelf and kept looking over at us to let us know what she wanted. She was offered kibble but she wasn’t interested, she was focused on the biscuits and nothing else would do. When she realised just sitting there wasn’t working she started barking and was quickly told to be quiet. Next she started trying to figure out how to climb up onto the bookshelf by herself. Eventually I gave up and up and gave her what she wanted.
So here’s the lesson to learn from a 9 inch high Lhasa Apso – if you’re persistent and consistent enough in going after what you want, eventually someone will come along and help you to get it!
