Weekend Assignment #41: My New Year's Resolution for my Pet and vice-versa.
My Resolution for Woody: Dear Woody: I would like you to go potty in the back yard WILLINGLY, instead of making me carry you out to go potty. I would like you to learn to LIKE drinking water from your water bowl instead of the bathtub faucet. I put fresh water in your bowl every day. And when I'm done scratching your back, please don't "woof" for more. Sometimes I get tired and need a rest. And please don't snarl at the groomer when he's trimming the hair on your feet and clipping your nails. He's only trying to make you more comfortable.
I resolve to go for more walks with you. I know you love being outdoors. (He thinks he's hot stuff when he's out on his harness and expando-leash! Our neighborhood is his toilet!) I also resolve to be a little more generous with goodies from the table.
Woody's New Year's Resolution for me: Dear Mom: Please put a chair at the dinner table for me and feed me "people food" like Daddy did for me on Thanksgiving when you went to Ft. Hood. I don't like the water in my bowl. It's not fresh enough or cold enough. Sorry, can't give on this one. I promise to remain on guard duty and bark incessantly at anyone and everyone who passes by our house. I promise to go potty outside IF you take me for walks so I don't have to poop in my own yard!
