The sound of the chopping board to Kali and Kloe is like a bell to Pavlov’s dogs! They rarely get something when
one of us Holly is in the kitchen cooking unless it’s vegetables or fruit. Still once they hear the sound of chopping they come running from near or far with unbridled optimism that treats are in their immediate future.
Dogs seem to instinctively know how to beg. They sit patiently staring at their benefactor mentally urging them to “give it up” or accidentally drop something on the floor. Kali’s begging style is generally the classic sit or sometimes lay at attention.
The 2018 Winter Olympics are coming up and if begging was an Olympic sport Kali would get a 7.5 or 8. A respectable score that would be based on strong conformance to standards, a low risk routine, but excellent amounts of drool. It probably wouldn’t win her a gold or silver but overall it’s a steady and acceptable performance.
Kloe on the other hand would receive at least a 9.5 scoring low for conformity non-existent drool and very high for risk factor and style. She would probably make the finals, albeit in quite an unconventional manner.
