The Power of Cheese

This is a video of my little Hercules and the Power of Cheese. I am breaking my own rules by using cheese to entice him to perform however it was the only way I could get him to perform his tricks on video and without a crowd around us. Sometimes rules are meant to be broken and this is definitely one of those times. And thanks to my darling daughter Lynette who helped make this video. She also helped get a couple of other tricks on video that I will share at another time. This little trick (behavior) is usually something Hercules does when he is sitting in the seating area of a shopping cart and some one is coming towards us screaming (as if they had just seen one of the Beatles) "Oh my gosh he is the cutest dog". That's when I tell Hercules to say hello and he begins waving his paws like he does in the video which of course gets him even more attention.

I think one of the reasons I want to get some of his tricks on video is because one day (hopefully not for another 20 years) I will have to say goodbye to my little guy and I desperately want to find ways to keep as many memories of him as possible. This little guy brings so much joy and love into my life. He loves attention and he knows how to turn on the charm to get it. He has not only brought joy into my life but into the lives of so many other people. He has fans all around the U.S. and he may be tiny in size but his heart is HUGE and is such a blessing in my life. I always tell him that God created him especially for me.

Thank you Lynette for getting this video (and the other ones) for me. 1437
