Vespa inhales her breakfast and Mingus takes his sweet time. Sometimes, he doesn't even want to finish his food, however nothing gets his appetite going like the threat of Vespa inhaling his food, too. Since he isn't too fond of that idea, I found that the perfect way to get Mingus to eat is to keep Vespa in the kitchen until Mingus finishes every last bite.
Vespa and I will do simple sit/stay exercises, and if I see Mingus stop eating, I'll have Vespa walk over to his bowl to investigate. That usually gets Mingus eating again.
Today's exercises included a little modeling.
I call these shots "Vespa is not amused."
This shot is titled "Give me the damn treat already."
We like to call this shot "Why do you torture me so?" This is alternately known as "Person behind the camera cannot shoot and hold a dog treat."
This final masterpiece is called "Half Head" or "Look at how big my ears are."
