View Full Version : Austin: Too Smart for Me

05-10-2006, 12:57 PM
Another beautiful day of playing hooky from work and I decided to use my lounge chair and sun my buns. I get everything set up and try not to make eye contact with my reflection (now I remember why I joined the weight loss group) and proceed to tan my can.
Neighborhood kids are out playing basketball in the alley and Austin is losing his mind barking at them, making for a less than relaxing tanning session.
I figure that I'm smarter than him, and get the squirt bottle to squirt him every time he barks. That'll learn him.
He learned, all right. He learned the exact distance the squirt bottle range was and would proceed to bark at the point it wouldn't reach and then come trotting back to me with a freaking SMILE on his face, tail held proudly behind him. He also would go back into the house, bark once just behind the screen where the squirter wouldn't reach. Now, he's making these little gutteral growls that aren't barks, and he's talking about it making me incapable of squirting him cause he's making me laugh too hard.
He's just too smart for me.

I was dozing off on the chair one quiet afternoon outside, and he came right up, very gently, and put his nose right by my mouth and gave me quick little kisses and then trotted away. He's such a MONKEY!:hearts:

I would think when it gets a little warmer and sunnier, he might LIKE to be squirted :D
