Sad story about dog not getting his treat.

Poor Rocky

by Carolyn Dooley

Many people believe dogs are not intelligent. They believe their brains are inadequately sized. Conducting research and holding classes to teach dogs to communicate is necessary. Ms. P and her dog, Rocky, are always together. She feels as if he is a baby boy. She takes him to the bank at least once a month. And the moment he realizes they are in line, he can't wait to get his tasty treat from the generous lady.

They drove up to the window yesterday. Rocky was panting and wiggling his tail. It wasn't untill yesterday that Ms P realized how smart the dog was, after all. Rocky was supposed to receive a treat, but the teller forgot. The next thing she knew, Rocky the dog had developed a sad and depressed disposition. He didn't get a treat this time. He jumped into the backseat and plopped himself on the seat.

My daughter told me this story when she returned home. She had gone to the bank with the lady to assist her with some errands. I've stated numerous times that I believe dogs are capable of communicating. Cinnamon. My sister's dog would say, "I love you," which I overheard.
