Rugby has a section of the bookshelf all to himself, to keep his books. He has training books, raw diet books, dog psychology books, obedience rule books... you get the point. He shares his shelf with my horse books, although he is of the opinion that he should expand his collection and claim the entire shelf.
Lucky for Rugby, they are only on the second shelf so he can read and refer back to them at his discretion. I am certain that is how he passes the time while I am away. He is plenty tall enough if he stands on his hind legs to see all of his books.
The hardest part of the whole process is getting it OFF the shelf once he has found what he is looking for. This task was even harder before he read his 'The Koehler Method of Open Obedience' book and perfected the working retrieve.
Since he had to work so hard picking and pulling out his book of choice, he must take a few seconds to relax before moving on!
Once his 5 minute break was over, he made his point loud and clear.
"I think its about time you hand over my dinner. Make sure it's spaghetti."
Having nothing to do with Rugby's dinner, or spaghetti...
