Martini’s Behavior and Reward

We had a terrific time in Amelia Island and as always, Martini charmed everyone he met.

Wednesday when we arrived to the hotel our room wasn’t ready yet so we went to have a late lunch at a sidewalk café. There were tables and chairs inside and out. In Florida you are allowed to bring your dog to lunch with you if there is outside seating

The outside tables and chairs were under roof with fans and a wonderful breeze was keeping it very comfortable. This was Martini’s first outing of this sort so we were a little skeptical of how he would behave. The waitress brought him a bowl of cold water which he was very happy about. When the food came I told him to lay down and wait. He did just as he was told and entertained himself by watching all the other people. He neither begged for food or made a sound.

As a reward for his excellent behavior we took him to the doggie boutique and purchased a new tank top for him. It’s black and on the back in silver letters it says, “It’s Yappy Hour”. The “Y” in yappy is styled to look just like a martini glass with little clear sequins outlining the glass and a green sequin where the olive would be in the glass. He is totally a dude in that shirt and it’s another reminder to us that we did indeed adopt the perfect little dog. Plus, the notification of happy hour isn’t bad either.
