|She's lucky she's cute.|
Go get a treat.
Be cajoled into going outside. Insist that someone accompany you – or refuse to go further than the back step.
Poop, ideally on top of the garden hose or in the middle of the driveway for everyone to admire.
Get a treat.
GO IN THE CAR!!! The destination doesn’t matter, as long as it is not the groomer.
|Yay! A ride in the car,|
Get a treat upon return.
Follow the Woman of the House everywhere, in case she does something out of the ordinary. Try to be under her feet when she is carrying something. Also, cut in front of her when going down stairs.
When she sits down at her desk, conk out and snore.
When the Woman goes for other drives, stay behind, though not by choice. Check the kitchen garbage; strew it all over the floor, if the Woman forgot to take it out. Check for bread on the counter, even though you don’t eat bread. Drag it and any other items of interest you find into living room.
|Ever hopeful by the treat bin.|
When she returns, get a treat. (This doesn’t work if she left the garbage or the bread where you could get it.)
GO FOR A WALK!!! Poop and do the happy dance. Practice your pulling.
Return for your daily meal. Also, a treat.
Wait charmingly at the back door when you hear the Man of the House’s car.
Then, when he and the Woman talk while making dinner, bark for treats. If the Man puts you out onto back step, bark for treats from there.
Bedtime! Conk out on your couch in bedroom. Ideally, they will have left a pile of clean but unfolded laundry for you to lie on.
