Wise words from a older dog.

I've learn alot in my old age. For one thing, when you get older you stop barking at stuff that are not important. I won't even bark when dad comes home from school,why? Because the other 2 do all the barking for me. Meaning my 2 sisters. Also when I do bark I mean it ! Like if I bark that I want to go out,mom better make sure that she lets me out right there -n- then. Because if she doesn't then I poo in the house. Not on purpose of course but, because I don't know when I'm going. I guess it's from being a older dog. Also I like being at home more too. I like to lay around all day. I don't play anymore unless mom puts her hand under a cover then, I will play. I love playing that game with mom. She sticks her hand under a blanket -n- moves it around so I can bite it. I also can tell mom when I'm ready to eat. You see she feeds all of us in the morning but, I don't alway eat right a way. So,mom puts my food up so my sisters don't eat my food. Couple of times they got to my food -n- I didn't have anything to eat so,I bark,cry, gave her my sad puppy dog eyes to let her know feed me .
And guess what it works ! For awhile any away until she caught on to what I was doing. Lol!
It fun to drive your mom nuts too in your old age. The way I do it is I'll bark that I want out mom come to me right away and lets me out. Ten mins. go by and I bark that I want back in so, she lets me back in.
Then one of my sisters will want to go out ( this is usually is Precious ) so of course if she goes out then I've to go too. Or 10 mins, later it might be just me who wants to go out again. When I was just out not more then 5 mins. ago ( as mom puts it. ) I know that I drive her crazy. Because she tells me so. And older dogs can read the body of their owners.
Make sure that you teach your sisters,brothers in the house the way of getting things from your owners.
Mom alway tells dad that he made me into a human by give me people food all of the time. I will not eat my food if dad has some food that he is eating. Because I beg,cry,bark,give him my sad puppy dog eyes and that alway works ! I'm daddys dog don't you know.
Yea,life is good when you are a older dog.
Take it from me I know.

More wise words later. This old dog got to get a nap.
