My wife and I adopted a puppy a few months ago. As my wife works from home, she has been doing most of the training and she’s done a fantastic job. Our dog, Sedona, at five months knows how to sit, lay down, fetch, give, bring and drop. She never begs for food…well. That’s where I come in. She never begged for food until last Friday.
We were having Chinese takeout Friday night and Sedona was peacefully sitting in her bed across the room. After we had eaten, the wife asked me to give her a biscuit. Thinking she meant the fried lo mein noodles, I grabbed one and handed it to the dog. Several “what did you just do”‘s later and ever since, we realized that Sedona seemed to be silently singing her new lament:
Some–times, I get fed at the ta-ble.
Not ev’ry time, but it happened one night.
I’ll wait here, as long as I’m a-ble.
And when they feed me, I’ll know I was riiight.
