When I say to move, it means go someplace else, not switch positions with each
other so there are still two dogs in the way.
The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes
are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of
my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor
do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.
The stairway was not designed by Nascar and is not a racetrack. Beating me to
the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help, because I fall faster
than you can run.
I cannot buy anything bigger than a king size bed. I am very sorry about this.
Do not think I will continue to sleep on the couch to ensure your comfort. Look
at videos of dogs sleeping, they can actually curl up in a ball. It is not
necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest
extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues
hanging out the other end to maximize space used is nothing but doggy sarcasm.
My compact discs are not miniature Frisbees.
For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some
miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to
claw, whine, try to turn the knob, or get your paw under the edge and try to
pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. In addition, I
have been using bathrooms for years, canine attendance is not mandatory.
The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dogs' butt. I cannot stress
this enough. It would be such a simple change for you.
Rules for non pet owners who visit and like to complain
about our pets:
1. The dog lives here. You don't.
2. If you don't want dog hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture.
3. I like my dog a lot better than I like most people.
4. To you, she's a dog. To me, she's an adopted daughter who is short, hairy
walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.
5. Dogs are better than kids. They eat less, don't ask for money all the time,
are easier to train, usually come when called, never drive your car, don't hang
out with drug-using friends, don't smoke or drink, don't worry about buying the
latest fashions, don't wear your clothes, don't need a gazillion dollars for
college, and if they get pregnant, you can sell the
The same applies to cats, except they ignore you until you are asleep."
