It's so hard to be good sometimes. . .

when you are just a 10 month old Lab puppy torn between your training and temptation.

This morning I was eating my breakfast on the couch watching TV.  Morgan, my Lab puppy, jumped on the couch next to me.

My plate of food looked sooooo good to her, never mind that she had already been fed.

She was standing in the most ridiculous position, kind of like a "ready to strike" position, her eyes fixed on my plate.  For a minute, I stared at her to see what she would do.  A stone statue could not have been more immovable.

I calmly said, "No, Morgan."  She didn't move or acknowledge my command.

Now this was beginning to get too funny and I was trying hard not to laugh.

Finally, I said, "Morgan, SIT."  She did.  Only she looked at me with those big dark eyes that clearly said, "Okay, I've been good long enough.  Can I please have that last bite of toast?"

You don't know what you are missing if you don't have a Lab in your life!
