When Lucy had only been with us three or four days, I taught her to ring these bells when she wanted to go outside to do her business. She figured it out very quickly. As we tried to watch football, she rang the bells. As we tried to eat dinner, she rang the bells. Each time we grinned thinking boy, Lucy is a quick learner. And she was. In no time she trained us to jump up and run to the back door each time she rang those bells. For the most part, the bells were brilliant, Lucy became potty trained and all was well.
And then Annabelle came along.
Annabelle thinks this is the dinner bell.
Annabelle is always hungry.
She rings the bells, I open the door, she runs out, runs immediately back in then expects a treat.
Sometimes she is hungry in the middle of the night.
The bells may have to go.
