    10 minutes of tummy scratching = 7 seconds

    And then the look.  "Did I give you permission to stop?"

    •  My little girl's training of me is almost complete (5+ / 0-)

      She knows I like her to hang out up on the bed for a while at night so naturally she places a high value on it and waits until she has a good reason to go up there. She might accept a piece of salami as proof that I love her sufficiently for her to accommodate me.

      The exception is brushing time. Then, she jumps up there instantly. When I'm done brushing her, she lies on her back, wiggles, looks at me, looks at me some more - all the while doing a slowly burning look that says, "I don't think you quite understand that we're not quite done here."

      [BTW, I would love it if she would sleep on the bed, but she absolutely refuses. She was imprisoned, starved and neglected for most of her puppyhood, and, though she's mostly healed, she still wants to be alone overnight. Usually close-by, but on her own.]
