Look what happens when you carry a video camera with you.

Last year I set up a new bank account but discovered afterward that the bank didn't have a traditional drive-thru window. Our trips to the "cookie bank" used to be the highlight of the day for our Rottweilers because they just love going through the drive-thru windows and seeing the nice people who always give them treats. This was my mistake. I saw the bank had a drive-thru window but it never occurred tome it was different from the other drive-thru windows we go to. The first time I went to make a deposit, taking both Ruff and Bessie with me, we found out to our great disappointment there was no window to see and talk to the bank teller. Instead they had a very small TV monitor at eye level with the cars driver window and the two Rotts paid no attention to the person talking on it.

So the next time I went to make a deposit I went inside the bank and told the manager about our complaint. But the bank manager told me that I could bring the Rottweilers inside with me and they could get to meet everyone. Note: its a small bank with only three people. So here we are on our third visit and I bring along the big guy, Ruff. And in spite of getting along in years, and being a bit overweight, Ruff did his usual thing and he jumped up with his front paws on the counter. You know the counters in the bank are at chest-height, but Ruff was still head and shoulders above the counter and at eye level with the teller behind her window, and yes, he got a treat for a reward. And, once again, I kicked myself for not having my camera.

Which brings me to the point of this post title. Gracie is a Golden Retriever and when she went to her human's bank she decided to check out all the teller windows to get as many biscuit rewards as possible. I think Gracie may have done this before because she really knows how to work a crowd.

All though this video is not about a Rottweiler, it is still most entertaining. Especially since Ruff just did the same thing, except he didn't hop from one teller window to the other - he didn't have to because our bank had only one woman working the teller windows anyway. But he did jump up with his paws on the managers desk to get a hug. Glad the bank manager was a woman.
