Ok, so I ran out of his usual treats (Beggin Strips; he goes nuts over 'em). Had some Slim Jims I was otherwise going to throw away (I think the Beggin Strips would probably taste better than those nasty things). So, I give a little bit to the dog.
For the next half-hour, he bugged the hell out me wanting more. Trying to type on the pc, he sticks his nose under my arm and whips his head up to get my attention...he's just bouncing off the wall.
Finally had to relent and give him some more...he seems content for the time being...
He also knows exactly what drawer the treats are in in my desk. He'll be sleeping on the floor and I can open any other drawer up, no problem. If I even open THAT drawer boom, he's over there in my face in a heartbeat.
He's part Lab, part Mastiff...and I swear the only lab on earth who hates water and will NOT play fetch. But he is a hell of a friendly dog...I love 'em:
