Dis Land is My Land
Mommy tells me to stop barking but I always splain to her dat it is MY yard and udder animals can't just come running through it wheneva dey feels like it. Mommy says I spose to share da yard and dat it is not really mine. She said dis specially impawtant when da udder animals not has a home of dey own likes two kittehs dat sleep near our house all da time. She says "Otis!, stop barking - dose kittehs not botherin yoo." Mommy usually has to come get me and pick me up and takes me in anudder room to stop me from barking. While mommy holds me she keeps splaining "da rules" - I has to be nice, I has to share, I has to be a good doggy. I love when mommy holds me, even if she is scolding me. I knows she is twying to teach me a lesson and I twy, I really do twy to understand.
And den....I quite down. I get all cozy in her arms. I feel her heart beating and it makes me feel safe. She is cuddling me and rubbing my ears. Oh, how I loves dat. She kisses me. She tells me what a good boy I am. Sumtimes she even gives me a treat. Oh dis is heaven. I feeling much better now.
And den....I see anudder animal in da yard! Woof! Woof! Woof! I goin cwazy now! I hear mommy, "Otis! Otis! stop barking!"......
I guess I is a work in progress.
