What's Wrong With This Line?

We're at the grocery store.  I've gotten the three things on my list and am ready to go so I ask Alphini:  "Find the counter."  This he does, and he's all wagging and proud of himself for getting us right up to the edge of the counter -- his objective.  There's only one shopper ahead of us in this line!  The only hitch...it's a mom with two kids and approximately half the store in her cart.  Hmmm.  I wonder ruefully if GDTx has tips for teaching the concept:  Express Lane ?  Just a thought!

Alfie's lying on the concrete floor, looking up, in front of a magazine rack near the checkout
Picky, picky!  I say, more time to relax!

Good boy, Alfie! Sounds like he picked the line with the most training opportunities. Nothing wrong with that!

I need to follow your example at the grocery store Alfie, and relax instead of looking at my watch :)

Awesome Alfie!!! Guess mom will be working on "Express counter" instead of "find the counter" hmmmmm? At least you wern't in Costco, where everyone seems to have half the store in their basket (including my dad :))

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
