Ring the bell, ring the bell!

Ok... so I got the idea some time back from the GPforum to teach Roman to ring the bell to be "let out".

I showed Roman one time... then my cat Pepper starts to swat at the bell to be let out too.

It became a funny competition of "who" gets the trick kinda a thing... so yah, motto is because of that darn cat Roman gets it and did the trick everytime he wants out.

The funny thing is around a week ago, I went out to clean Roman's poopies... I forgot to ring the bell.

Roman is usually let in the house when I go out "to clean" so he doesn't bother me... but its a beautiful day, the slider door is open.

That little bugger came up to the slider door... rang the bell (proceed to snort think my hubby did hear a snort), layed right down by the slider door and gave me a "blank stare" like you forgot something???

I was working, so it didn't register why he rang the bell and "not come out" till hubby tells me later why he thinks Roman did... snickering the whole time of course.

Yah... Roman showed his momma the trick alrite!

The Great Pyr Only Rings Twice
by: Frank

That's a great story. I can see it now... an indignant Great Pyr waiting by the slider!

A Pyr's independent nature is sometimes interpreted as stupidity by those not familiar with the breed. Of course nothing could be further from the truth. As demonstrated in your story, these are amazingly intelligent creatures.

Thanks for sharing your story with us. And feel free to write again.
