Fair Distribution – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am here to represent all the bulldogs in treat distribution matters, but especially me.

Me:        So, this is about you.

Stella:    Of course. I saw you give Doodlebug a treat.

Me:        Doodlebug and I are in training on some of his behavioral issues. The treats reinforce the lessons when he is successful.

Stella:    I am well-behaved all the time. Where is my treat reinforcement? Me, too! Me, too! Me, too!

Me:        You just had a treat.

Stella:    That was years ago.

Me:        That was 30 seconds ago.

Stella:    Seems longer. How long is 30 seconds?

Me:        Shall I count from one to thirty to show you?

Stella:    No, please. The less human talking, the better. Now about this fair treat distribution problem…

Me:        I didn’t know that we had a problem.

Stella:    Here I am. Working hard. Sitting around. Only getting a treat every 30 seconds or so while Doodlebug is getting rewarded for messing around and breaking the rules.

Me:        He gets rewarded when he does something right.

Stella:    How often is that?

Me:        Well, honestly…

Stella:    Not every 30 seconds, is it?
