Jan0809 - Happy Dogs on Thursday
Jetta (almost 7 month old ART, seen in photo using Joe the Dachshund as a pillow) is becoming very vocal at our house... she is not shy with the family and has taken to talking almost as much as the humans! It is a hoot when kept in moderation -- if you're eating something in the living room, she'll get eye level with you (accomplished by jumping gazelle-like onto an adjacent piece of furniture) and howl, growl and yip to advise that she'd like a bite, too, please. When she first started this behavior, we laughed - I mean, how cute? right? Now, though, I have remembered good advice I have read: don't treat little dogs any differently than big dogs just because they are smaller in stature and not as physically demonstrative as their larger counterparts. So, we let her have a say, then I shush her and make her go away, lie down or sit quietly (as all good dogs should when their humans are eating). I do wish I could include a sound bite, so I'll have to see if I can figure out how!
