Dude, it’s a bonus post!

Now six months old, the Dude has perfected several skills, including, but not limited to:  jumping on people with his muddy paws, climbing on the outdoor furniture cushions with his muddy paws, and climbing ON TOP of the outdoor table with his muddy paws.  He is still working on the arts of stealing food off the braai (grill) and begging for food when anyone is eating on the patio.

On the plus side, he (sometimes) comes when called and sits when commanded.  He has also (sort of) learned that he is not allowed in the house, though, of course, he is not above sneaking inside if the door is open and no one is watching.   When someone is watching, however, he assumes the posture below, conjuring the most mournful face he can manage.   Yes, that is the doorjamb between the patio and the living room.

Two feet on the floor at all times.

We have a "door open, two feet on the floor" policy at all times.

    My mom had that same “Door open, both feet on the floor” policy at our house when we were growing up and dating. 🙂

    Zelda does the same thing at the threshhold of the kitchen. However, it is usually her rump and tail in the living room, the other 5/6 of her in the kitchen. For that reason, I try to drop stuff on the floor I know she’ll hate, like broccoli and lettuce.
