One of the my specific instructions in dog-sitting is that when I get home in the evening I spend a few minutes with Kurbie.
He greets me at the door and I'm to squat down and let him rub up against me and then follow me out to go get the mail. On the way he gets part of a treat and when he returns back in he gets the rest of the treat.
I don't mind the routine whatsoever. It's smile inducing to see him wiggle his behind with a look in his eyes suggesting this is the best part of his day.
