Ferret thief

Lance was a complete idiot in training today. We were working on a discrimination challenge for Go Click and he was doing ok, when all of a sudden his food disappears down hole. Lance lost it. I had set his food dish on top of some of ferret furniture (see picture below) when naughty Opie poked through the top opening and managed to spill the dish all the way down the toy.

I put Lance in a stay while I shake the tube upside down, throw Opie aside, and repeat until I think I recover every last kibble. But we resume training and Lance has reverted back to kindergarten. He repeatedly mobs my hand with his kibble, keeps offering his "speed bump" trick, goes back to mobbing my hand, grunts, and just acts like an idiot. Apparently the thought of a ferret making off with his dinner was too much for the little guy.

Haha oh poor Lance, although I think I'd feel similar if a feret stole my dinner.

Oh Lance - I don't blame you! I'd be acting all crazy too if a ferret was stealing MY dinner! ;)

Poor Lance! Having mom withhold treats is one thing, but the ferrets too? Most upsetting. I can understand why he went cracker dog.

Well any self respecting Corgi is going to need to know where his food is. Its HIS! Poor guy, I bet he is starving too. LOL!
