How Ziggy eats treats

My friend Shuma recently pointed out to me how cute Ziggy is when he is eating a treat.  Since Ziggy is often his most mischievous at adoption events, giving him treats which he has to earn by sitting calmly is a good alternative to other behavior.  So perhaps he just seems so cute because while he's eating, he's not chewing on our shoes, or his leash, or the closest person's hands or other body parts?  But since I have nothing else to blog about, I decided to go ahead and post this short video of Ziggy eating treats.  Notice how he closes his eyes every time he takes the treat.  Do you know any other dogs that do that?

I never can watch Jack's face because I have to make sure I still have my fingers left :)

He DOES close his eyes! That's too funny. And he's so gentle. Why doesn't someone snap up this great dog?!

He is SOOOO about savoring the moment. Ziggy is total sensory dog. NomNomNomNom.

I think this is his special talent!

He's either savoring those treats, or he's blocking out any hand signals that he chooses to ignore. Either way, he's adorable.
