While Helen is on top of all the important dog commands such as “Sit”, “Come”, “Lie Down” and all that other stuff, I thought I’d actually teach CJ something useful – how to high-five.
The high-five is an important thing to know and do. How else will CJ be able to express her delight at dinner? How will she be able to celebrate the joy of knocking down a small child? How will she be able to greet me when I return from work?
There was only one thing to do – teach her. How? Repetition and snacks. Was I successful? You know it.
I don’t know why I felt the need to make a sound effect…
So why did I do this, especially considering my general distain for dogs? Well, I figured if CJ is going to get as big as I’m reportedly (and repeatedly) told, I thought it would just be cool to have her (in the future) rearing back on her hind legs, high fiving me and the two of us going off in our seperate directions.
