By most standards, Holly is a very average dog. She is a five year old black Labrador who has lived with her family since she was just a young pup. Holly is playful, loves treats, and is a fairly typical dog. However, this is with just one exception: she is obsessed with money. In fact, Holly’s family says that the dog is absolutely “in love” with money and cannot get enough of the green stuff. So, how did Holly become so fixated on cash? Well, it all began when Holly was just a young puppy, says her owner Casi Cook. Like most puppies, Holly was a bit of a thief and tried to steal items from bags around the house. This theft included cash, and when she would steal the money the family would bribe her with treats to get the cash back.
You can probably see it now: Holly would have money in her mouth and the family was trying to make sure she did not eat or damage the money. So, they gave her treats in exchange for her releasing the cash from her mouth. In doing so, they accidentally trained Holly to realize that she could exchange money for treats. Now that she is all grown up, Holly knows how to get what she wants. It is even safe to say she is a bit obsessed with money, stealing it from the family or even begging for money. Regardless of how Holly gets the money, she can’t get enough. Holly’s owner Casi is a waitress and regularly has cash on hand thanks to the tips she receives. Hearing Casi counting her cash sends Holly running, asking for her cut of the cash.
Holly’s piggybank has $87 in it now, which she keeps in the kitchen. She is very careful with her money, as she realizes that is has no value if it is ripped. And if you don’t have the cash, you can’t get the treats!
