Just a quick Public Service Announcement for you on a Sunday morning.
It is entirely possible that your baby is smarter than your dog. You can let that sink in. I’ll wait.
My dog is really quite bright. At nine years old he is wise and grey. He is patient and kind. Unless he wants to go outside and then he is less than patient. He will whine and bark and run in circles shouting “Hello, assholes!! Didn’t you hear?! Your dog wants to go OUTSIDE right NOW!”
Lucy didn’t say a word. She just waited until I went to the bathroom and hurled her little body at the screen door until it popped open. Fortunately kids are slobs and she didn’t shut the door behind her or I’d still be screaming her name and looking under the couch cushions.
The takeaway from this little tale – your baby might be smarter than your dog. And lock your screen door. You’re welcome.
**Note to my readers (some of whom I formerly considered my friends) – Really? Do you not even pay attention?? A PUBIC Service Announcement? Note the title, kids. Killer typo. And not one of you gave me shit about this. No wonder my baby is running away, I am a MESS.
