We taught Violet not to beg when she was a puppy. She would go to sleep at our feet or go to her bed. Then Joie came along with tons of bad habits including begging and barking. She doesn't beg all the time and we choose to ignore it so she ends up laying down and going to sleep.
My old dog, Vashti, was very good at meal times. She would go and lie in her corner without being told when the plates came to the table. She had one over-riding passion though. Whenever I was peeling or juicing an orange she'd be sitting by my side, staring plaintively and drooling all over my feet. She was anyone's for an orange! The burglar who brought her one would have had the run of the house!

After I'd squeezed the juice from the two halves of an orange I used to give them to her and she'd carefully strip all the remaining fruit out of the shells and eat it leaving them completely cleaned out and undamaged.

Yikes! Weren't you the perfect "all dressed up and no place to go" today? I hope you made good use of your time spent grooming pretty and called on a friend to meet for lunch? Or at least got out to a nice tea shop for a spot of tea and a sweet of some kind.
