Dog Oscars!

I am so smart that they don’t realize how smart.

I kind of mess with them to make them think that I am not as capable as I am. Since day one in the Koerner household, I have made a big deal of going up the steps or getting into a car. Despite my supreme jumping abilities, I act as if I cannot do it and then finally give it a final push. They feel sorry for me.

It takes a lot to keep my humans in line, but my use of the element of surprise along with a little Border collie head cock and a dumbfounded look on my face and I have it made in the shade. Being good to the grandkids seals the deal.

The grandkids are very special to me. They feed me all the time. When they don’t, I sneak the food from their hands. Rich and Mary Kay think that my licking them is because I love them. Well I do, but the icing on the cake is the immense quantity of food I find on their hands, faces, and even clothing. It is as if I had hit the mother lode!

When I am naughty, Rich thinks I need to be walked more. Another good situation as I get out and about to check my territories. I mark them judiciously to make sure that they belong to me.

I am social, apparently more social and extroverted than any other dog this family has opened up to. I use that to my advantage. I may not nip like a Border collie, or bite like other dogs, but I do jump on people. If I tallied the number of people I have managed to almost knock down, the numbers would be high. They think it is just because I am excited and cannot contain myself, I view it is a control feature. These people think that they are controlling me? I have news for them. I can pretty much do anything I want.

If they don’t get up on time to fix my breakfast, I jump on that bed of theirs and take my place, making sure that Mary Kay cannot move. It makes Rich laugh to see me do that. Then I whimper. Let’s face it, I am good. If there were an Oscar for a dog, I would get it, paws down!

Okay, I have to rest up a bit. I have a lot of stamina, but today is the day the grandkids are coming over and I need to get ready to plan for my extra food allotment!
