I MAY look like a easy-going, laid-back guy (which I actually am), but I'll have you know that I am also the BOSS so you dawgs better be on your tippy-toes now that I am around. Just so you know the lay of the land, here are SOME of my laws:
LAW 1: I eat WHAT I want, WHEN I want and WHERE I want. That includes dawg food. You may think it is your food, but it isn't...it is MY food. So unless I say otherwise, you just sit and watch me eat...who knows, maybe I will give you the go-ahead to join me.
When and if I give you the go-ahead to join me, make sure you keep to your side of the dish. Got it, Ellwood?
As for you, Ginger, I'm not letting you eat with me just yet...you need to learn patience m'dear and this is a good way to learn it.
(Ginger:) But MOMMMMM! This isn't fair!! I'm older than Elioth..why does HE get to boss ME around AND eat MY food??
(Elioth:) Ginger. Quiet!
LAW 2: I sleep WHERE I want; WHEN I want...even if it is in what you dawgs call your bed. Your bed is mine. YOU are mine. Everything is mine. Don't fight it. Acquiesce.
I sleep where you sleep if you are there or not.
Don't bother giving me lip or whining to Mom. If I feel you are worthy, I will let you join me...if you ask nicely.
And when I say you can join me, before you close your eyes, you bow to me and vow that you will honor me and protect me and always serve me. You hear? Good Ginger.
WARNING: If I have to remind you of these 2 laws in the future, I will do so with an iron paw so it is in your best interest to listen up and remember the laws the first time you hear them. K? K. I'm glad we are both on the same page now.
