Finn loves elevator rides.
One of Finn's favourite things about the elevator is the floor. Can you imagine why he would like the floor so much? Well, I'll tell you - and I think you might not have thought of this - Finn love the smells and tastes on the floor.
Since we live in a very tall building with 23 floors, there are a lot of people who have food delivered at dinner time.
Of course there are going to be delicious drips and drops on the floor that Finn can smell and sometimes lick. I would rather he didn't do this, but like any parent, I can't always get my little guy to do exactly what I want him to do all the time. And truthfully, I love watching him because it makes him so happy to smell everything. I mean, after all, what else does a dog get to do all day.
The other thing he can smell on the elevator floor is the scent of other dogs in the building. Finn can tell which of his friends has been in the elevator in the last few hours.
Now, in the following video, you will see one of the other things that Finn can't resist. Finn is a people dog. He loves to be petted by anyone and everyone.
On this adventure, although he knew he wasn't supposed to, Finn was very tempted to get that pet and love he was longing to get from the other woman rider. Watch closely and see what happened.
