Check this out.
Awhile back I got my own dog jail kennel.
I don’t always like being locked up in it, but it is kind of cool having my very own room.
It makes me feel important because my dog jail room takes up space in the house that could be used for other things.
That makes me special.
But something has happened.
My dog jail kennel is near my younger person’s bathroom and the laundry room.
So my younger person decided it was easier to use the top of my dog jail kennel as a shelf to put his clean clothes on.
Is this fair?
I mean, it’s my dog jail.
Shouldn’t it be used as a shelf to store my stuff?
My toys could go up there when I’m not playing with them.
And my treats. Yes, piles and piles of treats would fit up there.
I think if I tried really hard I could reach those treats too.
That would make it easier for my people.
They’d never have to bother giving me treats. I could help myself to them any time I wanted.
So how do I convince my younger person to move his clothes and put my treats there instead?
Oh yeah. I bet if I could reach treats up there I could reach clothes too.
I wonder what he’d think if I got them down and slobbered all over them.
They’d probably end up back in his room really quick.
After he ran them through the wash one more time, that is.
Time for treats!
