Cyndi’s House Rules for Four Legged Members

  1. Mommy is a fan of the NILIF philosophy… Nothing In Life Is Free (I can see that your previous owners were swayed by your adorable faces and puppy dog eyes, but if you want a treat from me, you’re going to have to earn it)
  2. Four legged’s are only allowed on furniture when invited by a two-legged (but be aware that invitation will NEVER include Mommy’s bed)
  3. I am not swayed by table beggars (Sassy, laying your head in my lap and gazing up mournfully while I’m eating dinner is a good, but you’re wasting your time cuz that stuff doesn’t fly when it comes from one of the three other two-leggeds sitting at the table… and I birthed them)
  4. Mommy prefers her arm in its socket (Rico, if you prefer to breathe during a walk, I suggest you do not dislocate my shoulder)
  5. We do not eat table legs (Sassy, I know as well as the next girl that dieting is rought at times, but trust me… you are NOWHERE near starvation)
  6. We do not mark territory on other pack members (Yes, Rico, I agree she should not have had her face all up in your stuff, but peeing on her nose was uncalled for; a growl or light nip would have done it)
  7. We do not chew off each other’s collars (Sassy, again… stick to what’s in your dog dish)
  8. DO NOT DROOL ON THE LAPTOP (Rico, you short out my cracktop and I will ban you from my lap)
