today i have been teaching the littlest canine the word ‘down’

she of course knows how to lie down,

she does it all the time…

she simply doesn’t know the English word for it …

and why should she?

just so i can put her in her place?

what about my place?

but she needs to respond to my request to assume this sphinx like position

to pass a test that says she is a good citizen –

no one asks me to reciprocate.

pim on table as i paint

i happen to be teaching her the word ‘table’ as well.

Education should be reciprocal as well as practical.

Thus i find her lying down on the table as i paint.

it is not, apparently, up for discussion.

the matter is simple tabled.

oh i have sooooo much to learn.
