I came across this picture of my last lab, Scout a couple days ago. He was the most disciplined dog I've ever seen. Here he is, balanced on a cooler, with 4 hamburger patties, a brat, and a hot dog on his head and another piece of hot dog on his nose. All the while, my then 1 year old son is standing there waving his arms and talking to the dog. The dog would never budge until Itold him it was OK then he would flip the piece of hot dog up into the air and catch it on the way down (I took the other stuff off his head first).
