Ricky's Go-To Move
This is him sitting up and "begging." I find him doing it ALL the time. I don't even have to ask anymore. He's discovered that everyone seems really amused when he does this, and often good things follow. Kisses, treats, or just kudos.
The other day at the pet store the check out lady was just being nice and said, "Well, aren't you cute?" and he looked at her, cocked his head to the side and sat back onto his hind legs begging for more attention. (And of course, he got it!) Then this morning, he saw his first cat. First he just stared it down, and as the cat came a little closer towards him, he sat up and begged, assuming the kitty might reward him in some way. Well, the kitty did not give him a treat, but me and my neighbor both admired his effort and let him know we thought he was super cute.
