When i hang out the washing i usually have a Bullmastiff watching me. The hose and tap are just near the clothesline so while he's around the other side of the house snoozing , i get the shampoo and collar ready on the windowsill above the tap.
I then start hanging out the washing ready to pounce on him the second he walks around the corner but he never shows. I make plenty of noise so he knows i'm there but by the end of load he still hasnt walked into my trap.
Bugger it !! I'll just walk around and grab him, then carry, drag, pull, fight him to the bathing area. So i'm all jee'd up ready for a fight only to find him buried underneath our 4x4. He knew damn well what i was up to ! But how ??
I've noticed he's picked up on my 'bath time' vibe before so we dont even mutter the word around him these days but this time i had it sussed and thought for sure i'd outsmarted him.
He chases the hose when i water the garden but he's onto me there aswell....always staying just out of my reach and he's to fast and strong to tackle when he's running after the water.
Dead set he's smarter than i think and the look on his face says it all.......You cant fool me Dad !!
