Things my puppy is teaching me-the funny x-pen game!
It might look like we have a quiet sedate puppy. At night we do, late at night, and then I carry her into bed. And she sleeps all night to recharge her battery for the morning. Oh jeez, the mornings... Most of the time, this kitchen headquarters is not such a lie-downy place. It's mayhem grand central, and the toys are flying and things go all poltergeist, pushed across the floor with might and force. It is a place where the rules are not jumping on the xpen and it is now a funny game that the border collie has trained me to play called jump on the xpen then flop into the down. Ha ha! Funny game!
Gustavo is the cop of this funny game. He has decided to enforce jumping on the xpen by barking in the puppy's face. I am intervening as Superior Dictator of All the Dogs and changing the rules. My Rules! No dog rules! Yikes!
Otterpop and Ruby just vanish into the other room during this game. They have dignity. They watch this from the chair, huddled up together, like a quiet council. Not sure if they are judging or not. I don't really care. Judge if you will, lady dogs. Two dogs quiet in a chair is lovely and awesome right about now. Puppies don't care if you haven't finished your coffee. Their games start NOW.
