Kaci here. I have to post because Kyla’s attention is 100% directed at something else. It started yesterday when we got a surprise in our mailbox. It was from Stuart for Kyla! There was a card with a beautiful picture of Stuart
Kyla was almost crying when she read it. “Oh, thank you for thinking of me, Stuart, you made my month which was horrible so far!” It went up immediately in our gallery of honor.
It also came with two bags of low-fat treat. Kyla had been getting red yams, sliced and baked (occasionally burnt) in the oven. She was beside herself in joy
When told that she’d only get one a day because they were low fat and she wasn’t allowed to wolf them all at once, she became very protective of them and went on guard duty. I asked her why and she said “because SOD (some other doggy) might come to steal them”. I told her New River was many square miles and nobody knew exactly where the treats were. She said “remember a couple of nights ago when They found piddle on the floor? Who did it?”. I said that we told Them that it was SOD. She asked “after They put down paper towels to soak up the piddle, who shredded the towels?”. Well, we blamed SOD. She said “well, SOD is you and you know where the treats are and I’m guarding them from YOU!”. Well, I never.
Now I have a problem. Do I let Kyla guard the treats forever or do I let her know that I’ll never get more than one because I get my regular treats and Kyla can’t have those but she doesn’t know I get the regular stuff? I might get one of these because Stuart said I could. What would Emily Post do?
