Jake was chosen specifically to accompany Rugby in his picture today because of dog class the other night. One of the games we played for Christmas was to see who could balance a treat on their nose for the longest. Jake was denied participation because a specific two-legged said he was incapable. Jake’s ego was hurt by this and we had to prove that he was indeed capable of holding still enough to balance the treat on his nose.
A testament to how well he did balancing the treat is that I was the one both putting the treat on their noses, and taking the picture so he at leas had to hold still long enough for me put it on there, get the camera, and take the pictures. The first two time we tried he wasn’t that good at it and only lasted about 15 seconds or so. It was only long enough for me to get the silly only Jake photos that are on here. Third times a charm though, and this time he held it on there for probably 2 minutes or so, long enough for me to get all of these pictures. with both him and Rugby.
Being as competitive as we are, I am glad Jake didn’t participate because he might just have won! I *think* Rugby timed out at 30 seconds the other night, before it fell off. I can’t remember if Pete or Brandy won, but they both beat Rugby’s time.
The pictures with Jake were no problem for Rugby since he doesn’t notice that there was even a treat on his face (Yes, even this humongous one…I am fairly certain he was oblivious). I posted about him not catching treats that I threw at him before…or even attempting. Balancing on the nose is kinda along those lines since even when it falls off, he just stares at me blankly. I think he is a lost cause! You can see how un-amused he is in the pictures. :p
