    Yep. I had two dog-girls. You better believe they counted exactly how many treats each one received. If there was any discrepancy, I didn't hear the end of it until they were equal.

    ...only one left now, and the mean vet says she's not supposed to get treats. icon_cry.gif
    She manages to get some anyway.

    Rewards and incentives play an incredible role in behavior. I was watching the CNN special "Blackfish" where they mentioned that one of the whale killings of their trainer was likely due to the animal being hungry and hearing the bottom of the fish bucket being reached well before the end of the show. They noticed that the whale became immediately agitated and protested prior to the sad ending which we all know.

    Ugh I hated watching Blackfish, I wanted that dolphin to eat every human in sight.

    Prada! Thank you!
    I couldn't think of a women's shoe brand this morning to save my own life. Not watching enough Sex and the City I guess.

    PS: no stiletto heels. Could be lethal when wielded by angry, Prada-jilted paws.
