Old Habits Die Hard

"I'm juuuusssst lookin'."

For the record (and this is for The Herd and a certain someone at The Herd Annex), Juno only counter-surfed once early on in living with us. It took one big "No!" to never have her attempt it again. Well, at least when I'm in the house.

  1. Wooos! Counter surfing, table surfing I am an expert at all... I have snagged everything from the table decor to a whole pizza!

  2. We've never had a counter-surfing dog, that is, until R. There are so many statements that end with 'except R' about our Labs. It's funny what a unique personality he is.

  3. I never surf either. At least when Mom is watching. After I ate 8 cupcakes (cake, papers, frosting, and sprinkles), she is much better about putting food away. Oh, and that one time Kat and I licked all the frosting off the cake for her decorating class. But besides that, never.


  4. Moo is a pro when it comes to counter surfing! She hears the big NO a lot, and immediately takes her paws down ...EVERY time. Mom has super hearing, she can even tell if Miss Moo is counter surfing from the other room!
    Now, I'm a good good good good good good boy. I never counter surf. Maybe I should be more like Moo?

  5. Woo. I used to be a counter-surfer, too. I even helped myself to bananas off the top of the magic cold box. Hey! Mom was walking the redheads, so I just got a little snack for me and Stormy!

  6. The queen of counter surfing - Dakota!!!! Now Phantom will take from the sink but not the counter. And TD - bless his heart - NEVER even jumps to take a look - OK, now I have jinxed myself:(

  7. I only counter surfed once, and it was to get a piece of my chicken jerky that was left on the counter. Never did it again! Maybe I need some lessons?
