You doubt me? I can bark while I'm lying down with my chin on the ground!
Even more impressively, I can growl while I'm yawning!
I'm a watch dog, not a guard dog. That's a different union.
A play in one Act and one Dog
(human performance is ad lib - not a speaking part)
Me: Something's wrong! I'm too weak to move, I can't even stand!
Me: I must be starving! It just came over me.
Me: I think I'm past the point of kibble. Only a treat will do.
Me: No, not that treat. You know, the special one, the one you call "The Big Stinky".
Me: It's so hard to chew. Could you break it up for me? I'm about to faint.
(I eat the treat)
Me: How about we go to the dog park!
You'll need to practice and to make sure the human understands his / her part.
This play never goes out of fashion; a performance every couple of weeks is perfect.
Following the leash is often a successful strategy.
When in doubt, look for the feet.
The Starving Spaniel
Hmmm, want a hint? Simply disregard everything that isn't a spaniel, and you're left with me!
You say you need another hint? Practice!
The Perfect Watchdog
A Good Old Dog
Really, that's all I am: a good old dog.
And that's how I should be treated: as a g.o.d.
You'd be surprised at what goes on under bushes! Someone has to keep a watch on them, which is why we dogs have our own particular Bushes of Interest (BOIs). These are some of mine.
I'm going to teach you a new game I invented, called "Spot the Spaniel". It's challenging and loads of fun!
Spot the Spaniel!
See, it's not so hard.
