Last night I was listening to a radio program about the benefits of pet therapy, where they take nice doggies to hospitals to cheer up patients. The program said, "Pets are a great way to reduce anxiety."
Um, I'd like to negotiate a trade.
Yesterday Charlie looked me right in the eye and squatted to pee on his bed, ate the first ten pages of The Federalist Papers, and managed to chew a hole in the bag of dog food on the shelf so that he could sit under it and have food pour down into his mouth.
Reduce anxiety, my foot.
Two nights ago, my dog peed three inches away from my foot. Three inches.
She didn't get to come inside til morning.
Though I can leave the bag of dog food on the floor and she won't touch it.

I'm pretty sure my huskies may have taught him those tricks. Especially the food on the shelf one.

What a discerning doggie you have!

Oh, but that face!! Pets are alot like children. Good parents/pet owners teach, train, guide, prod, and pray. One day, miraculously, they grow up and make you proud. Just be thankful Charlie will mature seven times faster than if he was a child! Hang in there.
