Hi everyone! We wanted to show you the birthday present that our Uncle Jay sent to our Mama! Its a book about dog training, called How To Be Your Dog's Best Friend. It was written by these monks in New York who raise and train dogs at their monastery! Can you believe that? Mama already started reading it last night. We told her that she is already our best friend... and she said "ditto," but she said she thinks Uncle Jay sent her this book because he thinks Lily needs to be trained more.
(Lily: "What? Why do I have to be the one to get trained more?"
Trixie: "Because you're the one that would never stop barking at him while he was here!"
Lily: "Thats because he's like twelve feet tall and really loud! Besides... I am the one with perfect recall skills. All Mama has to do is call my name and open her arms, and I run straight to her. You are the one that Gramma has to chase into the street every time a dog walks by."
Trixie: "Well, who is the one who still pees on the carpet?"
Lily: "Who is the one who still jumps up on people when they're making food in the kitchen?"
Trixie: "You do that too. Its just that you're so small, nobody cares."
Sammy-Joe: "Quit arguing! You both could use some training as far as I'm concerned!")
So... yeah. It looks like a really good book! Mama said when she's done reading it, we'll tell you all about it. And if anyone else has read it, let us know what you think!
