Table Manners

We decided to barbecue and eat dinner outside on the deck. Inside, the dogs have good table manners. They know not to beg and usually lay down under the table while we eat.

Once outside, it seems that Cooper and Otis thought the rules changed. I am not sure if it was the smell of hot dogs and hamburgers cooking or if it was being out on a beautiful evening, that got them so excited.

Coop sat next to my chair and began to bark when the hot dogs were placed on the table. Otis sat near Jeff drooling. The down command got both dogs to lay down for 5 seconds and then they popped back up.

When the table was cleared, both Cooper and Otis got a small piece of hot dog. I guess their persistence paid off.
