    Default Sign #321 that you're addicted to EBN

    Your bully thinks that the sound of your laptop closing means that it's dinnertime.

    Yup, you read right. I unintentionally trained Stig that closing my laptop means that it's mealtime. We let Stig rest from playing about a half hour before dinner as per @TessaAndSamson's article on Bloating, by focusing on other things rather than him. As you can guess, this is the time I go on the comp and check-up on what's new here. Once he realizes this, he usually stops what he's doing and sits quietly beside me and maybe catch a little nap.

    So yesterday afternoon, he was taking his 3-hour afternoon nap and suddenly ran towards the kitchen when he heard my laptop close. It was about 4pm so it sure wasn't dinnertime yet .

    Haha!!! Too funny!!!
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    YAY you read my article LOL It's totally avoidable, so easy to prevent but so serious if it happens so for me its a no brainer, it's always limited activity an hour to an hour and a half after Sam eats.

    I'll bet Stig was very upset when he didnt get dinner, did you give him a nice treat to tide him over?

    Of course, I think it was the first one I ever read on EBN! Very helpful info, that's when we started doing the break before and after meals.

    Yes, I felt bad so it turn out to be a training session with treats.
