Monkey waiters work for soy beans

Monkey Waiter in Japan

Amy and I spent 2 weeks in Japan for our 30th birthdays (January 2008). If only I’d known monkeys served beer at some restaurants I would have rearranged our agenda.

“Biru!, Biru!” the patrons call, and a dutiful monkey comes at a fast waddling trot bearing beer.

Amy was wondering if we could train our dog Rick to wear a Japanese worker outfit and serve… anything actually.

“Biru!, Biru!” and Rick only cocks his head to the side waiting to hear words he knows like “car ride” or “treats”.
