Mom and Dad, as human parents go, are more on the "strict" side than the "permissive" side of things. Pawsonally, I don't think they are strict enough. If Middle Lad, Little Lad, and Wee Lass were MY pups, I'd bite them when they disobeyed. Mom and Dad tend to prefer more psychological than physical torture, and have never once bitten any of the pups, much as they have deserved it.
I am all for enforcing homework, limiting screen time, and expecting wet towels to be hung up.
Now things have gone too far.
Admittedly, I have been really "bad," lately. I have been getting walks, and I have been playing vigorously, on a regular basis, with Lindsey, the Pittie pup from next door. Still, I have made sure to do misbehave in just about every manner that I can think of. Dad, rather rudely, pointed out to Mom that she was all in favor of instilling discipline in the human children, but that she rarely said "no," or punished Sophie or Me.
Mom has begun to say "NO." To Me, Pennie.
Mom has even begun to put me in the "Cooler," for time out. The Cooler is of course based upon the Vietnam-Era Torture boxes. I am forced to go into the downstairs bathroom, where I must stay, in complete boredom, with no couch, chair, or blanket. There is only one heat/air duct bringing air into the room, so I feel that I am suffocating. The window is high up on the wall, so I can not see outside the room.
Sophie, even Sophie, has been forced to spend time in the "Cooler," and Sophie has looked in utter shock and amazement as she, Queen Sophine, has heard Mom say "NO," to her.
The disciplining of the human pups must continue, but I shall not tolerate being told "No." Thus far I have been in such a state of shock of being sent to the "Cooler," that I have not done what it is clear that I must do: tunnel my way out. Just wait until Dad sees how much damage one Standard American Brown Dog can do tunneling her way out of a small bathroom.

Did you get your tunnelin out ideas from that Steve McQueen movie "The Great Escape"?
It can work, but I seem to remember the only guys who "made" it had a rowboat.
Do you have a rowboat? And a river?
Yipes! The cooler?!!? Sounds pretty bad. I'm a little Red Dog! My Mom is always surprised when I do things!
Or you could use a bike. I checked my sources, one of the guys used a bike to get away.
Do you have a bike?
Dad 0. Pennie 1.
I think no are just human for "bark louder!"
