Things For Dogs To Remember
  • The garbage collector is NOT stealing our stuff.
  • I do not need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm lying under the coffee table.
  • I will not roll my toys behind the fridge.
  • I must shake the rainwater out of my fur BEFORE entering the house.
  • I will not eat the cats' food, before or after they eat it.
  • I will stop trying to find the few remaining pieces of clean carpet in the house when I am about to throw up.
  • I will not throw up in the car.
  • I will not roll on dead things
  • I will not eat any more socks and then redeposit them in the backyard after processing.
  • I will not chew my human's toothbrush and not tell them.
  • I will not chew crayons or pens, especially not the red ones, or my people will think I am hemorrhaging.
  • When in the car, I will not insist on having the window rolled down when it's raining outside.
  • We do not have a doorbell. I will not bark each time I hear one on TV.
  • I will not steal my master's underwear and dance all over the back yard with it.
  • I will not play tug-of-war with my master's underwear when he's on the toilet.
  • The sofa is not a face towel. Neither is my master's lap.
  • My head does not belong in the refrigerator.
  • I will not bite the officer's hand when he reaches in for my master's driver's license and car registration.
  • Kitty Litter is NOT a snack!
  • Kitty is NOT a snack!

1. If you have to throw up, get into a chair quickly; if you can't manage that in time, get to an oriental rug (or any good rug will do).
2. Always accompany guests to the bathroom. It is not necessary to do anything, just sit and stare.
3. Do not allow closed doors in any room. To get a door opened, stand on your hind legs and hammer with your forepaws.
4. When supervising cooking, stand behind the left foot of the cook, where you will be stepped on, picked up, and consoled with food.
5. When a door is opened, use it. When you've ordered an outside door opened it is important to stand halfway out and think about several things. It is especially important during cold weather, rain, snow, or the mosquito season.
6. Begin people training early. Humans need to know the basic rules. They can be taught if you start early and are consistent.

VISITORS: Quickly determine which guest is afraid of dogs. Charge across the room, barking loudly and leap playfully on this person. If the human falls down on the floor and starts crying, lick its face and growl gently to show your concern.
BARKING: Because you are a dog, you are expected to bark. So bark - a lot. Your owners will be very happy to hear you protecting their house. Especially late at night while they are sleeping safely in their beds. There is no more secure feeling for a human than to keep waking up in the middle of the night and hearing your protective bark, bark, bark...
LICKING: Always take a BIG drink from your water dish immediately before licking your human. Humans prefer clean tongues. Be ready to fetch your human a towel.
HOLES: Rather than digging a BIG hole in the middle of the yard and upsetting your human, dig a lot of smaller holes all over the yard so they won't notice. If you arrange a little pile of dirt on one side of each hole, maybe they'll think it's gophers. There are never enough holes in the ground. Strive daily to do your part to help correct this problem.
DOORS: The area directly in front of a door is always reserved for the family dog to sleep.
THE ART OF SNIFFING: Humans like to be sniffed. Everywhere. It is your duty, as the family dog, to accommodate them.
DINING ETIQUETTE: Always sit under the table at dinner, especially when there are guests, so you can clean up any food that falls on the floor. It's also a good time to practice your sniffing.
HOUSEBREAKING: Housebreaking is very important to humans, so break as much of the house as possible.
GOING FOR WALKS: Rules of the road: When out for a walk with your master or mistress, never go to the bathroom on your own lawn. Always use the neighbours.
COUCHES: It is perfectly permissible to lie on the new couch after all your humans have gone to bed.
PLAYING: If you lose your footing while chasing a ball or stick, use the flower bed to absorb your fall so you don't injure yourself.
CHASING CATS: When chasing cats, make sure you never quite catch them. It spoils all the fun.
