I still really like my new home but I keep over hearing the humans talk about "routines" and "rules" and that I need to start understanding them. So far I've learned about the garbage (see previous post), and that stealing food, even if it is doggie treats off the counter is also frowned upon. Humans also do not like being woken up at any time of the night and they expect you to potty at what ever time they decide to put you out whether you gotta go or not. Stella has seemed to adopted pretty much all these regulations but my agenda is to revert her back to being a dog. She needs to learn to break some rules. These humans need to loosen up and allow some spontaneity in their lives.
I'm also tired of hearing the words "sit", "stay" and "down". The humans are stingy with the treats unless I act like I am willing to obey all those commands. My humans are really good about playing with me, giving me belly rubs and good food. I just need to teach them a few things so that I will get spoiled like I was with my old people.
And one last thing. There are these really long legged things that hang out around the yard (I think the people called them deer). I've tried going after them to show the people that I am ready to defend our borders but that has also been under appreciated. These humans have so much to learn!
