Things My Dog Has Taught Me

Lesson One: Stick Up For Yourself

If you come into the living room and find that the small, but potentially vicious dog that your mummy and daddy have invited to come and stay has decided to steal your bed…

…don’t get mad, get even. Steal his bed!

Even if it is way too small for you.

Lesson Two: Never Give Up When Faced With A Challenge

When faced with what seems like an insurmountable challenge, such as trying to squeeze yourself into a bed that’s clearly way too small for you, it’s easy to become dispirited and give up. But if you try, and try, and squeeze and struggle, you might just overcome that challenge…

…and somehow cram yourself into that bed that’s way too small for you.

    Very good. A Labradour we know sometimes stays and manages to fold herself into the bed belonging to our Pug. She never looks comfortable, but loves to sleep there!

      Well I don’t think she was comfortable, as she’s usually more of a stretch out on the sofa kind of dog…


      …but I think she wanted to make a protest. 🙂

    I’ve trained him well 🙂

      He certainly doesn’t lack for confidence. 🙂
