Lily is a young Golden Retriever/Terrier cross puppy with a lot of enthusiasm. She loves playtime and she loves treat time One of her favorite treats is spaghetti. Nicole and Dan have trained Lily to bark on command when the treats come out. But spaghetti has her salivating so much that all she can manage is a silent bark.
Nicole urges Lily to "speak" and offers encouragement. Lily won't take her eyes off the dangling noodle and she pleads with her eyes but she just can't manage to make the right sound. Dan finally tells her to speak and she gets it right. She is rewarded with the noodle but getting it into her mouth is tricky. Eventually she slurps it down and even gets some more noodles after that one.
