Poor Pip is busy trying to be all things to all people – good dog, smart dog, hot dog. You see, like many dogs, Pip has a mean case of the disease to please. Sometimes, it is just easier to ride the tide than fight the current – especially for a little dog who doesn’t know how to swim.
- I will not sit or stand or stay just because you tell me to – I am my own dog and will make my own decisions (unless you get mad at me and then I will fold like a house of cards)
- I will not keep quiet. I am dog and I will bark if I want to bark.
- I will not be bought with a dog treat or pat on the head (a belly rub or turkey leg, maybe).
- I am not a bad dog or a good dog. I am just a dog and that is enough.
