I'm so frustrated! My Mom is trying to teach me something but I just don't understand. You see, I have this squirrel place at my house. It is outside and it is on the back of my house near the kitchen. My Dad goes out there almost every day to cook yummy food (that I don't get to eat) on a thing that gets hot. The squirrels run around out there and I can see some other dogs out there. I LOVE to go out there and bark. Well, sometimes I sit and wait by the door to the squirrel place waiting for somebody to open the peepol door and let me out. I wish I had a doggie door like some of you. Mom says I will never get one because she is afraid I am going to fall off the squirrel place, because it is high up and opens up to a place without a fence. I can't go out there by myself.
Well, when the peepol open the door to the squirrel place I bark REALLY LOUD to let the squirrels know I am coming out and I rush out of the door REALLY FAST!!! Mom doesn't like it. She says I hurt her ears. (Get over it Mom, is what I say.) So, she has started making me "SIT" and "STAY" far back from the door. Then she takes FOREVER to open the door and she expects me to "SIT" and "STAY" and WAIT quietly (what torture!) until she opens the door and says "OK." I am so frustrated! Why do I have to play these manners games when all I want to do is bark on the squirrel place?
