This morning a man rang the bell. When the door opened, Arrow ran out and I growled and snapped at his pants. After all, it is OUR house. That’s how we greet the Chinese food guy.
The man grabbed Arrow before he ran off and came in.
He sat down and explained how dogs get people to do stuff. My mom showed him Arrow’s manuscript. It said all the same things.
He told my mom she had to talk to us like a dog. A bigger, bossier dog than us. He went out again. This time my owner mom stood up and did this growl thing when I started to move to the door. I didn’t stop and she threw a noisy thing near my feet! Real scary. Then she called me over for some Good Doggie pets.
She even did it with Arrow. He was so shocked he just stood there. Even with the door opened. Then he came over when she got down and called him. Without a treat.
We were amazed. She turned herself into a bossy dog. Later she did it when I barked out the window. And again when Arrow barked. He stopped! The man was from Bark Busters and she owes him big bucks.
But will it last?
