I have become Rack's job.
You see with a dog as smart as Rack, if you don't keep them occupied, if you don't give them something to do, they watch you.
I do call the breed the McNab SuperDog (TM) for a reason.
He has figured out that there are certain things that I do just before going out.
Get the wallet, brush my teeth, get the mask, car keys, and other things.
Sometimes he is right and it becomes an explosion of excitement and bedlam ensues.
Other nights like this one, he is wrong and is drafted to stay home and watch the house.
He is not destructive nor does he counter surf, we broke him of that a long time ago with a few metal bowls on top of things. But he really would rather come with us.
This is one night that the begging got on my nerves, frankly, and I decided to do a little video of Dog Shaming.
It used to be that we could go to the big box hardware stores with him, but now I'm thinking even that is not going to happen with Covid.
Too bad. It was a great training tool.
