Paddy is a very good dog in the house, especially around food. We could leave anything within his reach and be sure that he wouldn't touch it unless given permission and he is certainly not one to beg when we are eating. In the evening, Keith invariably decides he would like a 'little snack', no matter how substantial his dinner has been and it has become a routine for Paddy to be given three small dog biscuits when Keith has finished eating.
This is how he looks when we forget.
This is a dog who has no need of words to communicate!
