Dog, we get along fairly well. I feed her; I give her water; I rub behind her ears and her back. I allow her to come to town with us. She deeply appreciates getting away. Really, I don’t think I ask for too much. I’ve told her: “Stay off the couch.” Sometimes, she pretends to be asleep; pretends not to hear.
So, I remind her: “Stay off the couch.”
Again: STAY … OFF … THE … Couch. This time, she hears me.
Do I ask too much from Dog?
