Today Mom and I played a trick on the mailman. I didn't realize what she was doing at first, but when the mailman came to the door she said to him, "Wait a minute. I have something to show you." Then she got me to come to the door and I placidly, and quietly, said hello. "See! I've been working hard and she no longer barks!" Mom said. The mailman looked perplexed for a moment, but then suddenly Lexie realized someone was at the front door and she came running and barking. The jig was up at that point and the mailman had a good laugh. He knew I couldn't be the same dog that usually greets him at the door, yapping her head off. We sure fooled him, for a few moments anyway!
