Training the Dog Guy

The Dog Guy's training continues slowly. He understands now that our demands to be let out or in are to be obeyed immediately. He is, however, still having difficulty grasping the concept that 50% of the bed is MINE and any attempt to prove otherwise is doomed to failure. He thinks that picking me up and depositing me on the floor will result in an uninterrupted night's sleep with plenty of room for him to stretch out, and seems puzzled when he wakes up to find I have resumed residence on my half of the bed, Mummy is occupying most of the other half and he is teetering on the edge.
I guess that hanging out with dogs doesn't really sharpen the intellect though, so I should cut him some slack. He tells Mummy about the wondrous things his dog does. Are you ready for this? Apparently his dog can climb onto a chair and perch there. Can you believe that? Something that any three month old kitten can accomplish with ease is considered brilliant when a dog does it. The dog also chews up the neighbours' dogs' bedding, which the Dog Guy then has to replace out of his own pocket. Despite this, he regards this patently imbecilic canine as the Stephen Hawking of the dog world. I think if it did an IQ test, it would be battling to score higher than a wombat. It might come out ahead of a garden slug though.

Good thing our Dad is a cat guy and knows he is forever destined to sleep on the edge of the bed! Good luck training the dog guy!!
