i heard the sound of paws hitting the counter top…
and the snuffling laps that followed.
Shit, i thought, i forgot to put the pan in the sink – too hurried to wash it right away…
all dog training is built on successes, and he is very successful at counter surfing!
BARK! came the cry of the small dog, whose paws would never reach that high –
CLATTER! the poodle deftly hit the pan on the handle, flinging it to the floor –
where both could partake of the grease and glory.
Bad dog? nah, Good Dog!
and i got a lesson in equality.
it doesn’t always look like you think…
