"It is important, when you are feeling under the weather, to come back hard and strong"
Whenever we have a little brush with ill health or injury, our parents tend to get all tender towards us. Which is fine, however, you can't allow them to forget that you are strong, in charge, and bad to the bone.
An example of how I have been practicing this most recently, is by putting on my best greased pig performance.
The thing is, I rarely come when I'm called. I will only come if
A. I feel like it &
B. There is something in it for me.
This morning, I put on a double whammy. Sluggo puked on the sheets last night, so the rents were trying to strip the bed. Well, I wasn't ready to get up, plus, I could smell the tasty treat and needed to investigate. So I proceeded to wiggle myself just out of reach every time dad dove for me.
It looked something like this, except insert cute fawn pug queen.
Then there was the matter of coming in after doing business. This time, I did come when called, but when I saw that Dad wanted to clean my feet off, I wasn't having it. Have treat in hand, or expect this...
I will simply exit, and wait just outside the door until all conditions point to treats in my belly!
So, in the words of the great LL Cool J
Don't call it a comeback
I been here for years
In the spirit of coming back strong, I also need to put out the call for a Sunflower Power of the Paw.
