Want Wine with that Whine?


I firmly believe that communication is the key to a healthy relationship. Why waste time with WONDERING what someone wants or needs when there are more direct ways to get the job done.

I prefer WHINING myself. It is direct . . . it clearly expresses my state of mind . . . and it is seriously so irritating that the results are almost instant.

The other day I NEEDED something. And it was IN THE KITCHEN where my human HAPPENED to be standing, cooking. Okay, I admit it, it was what she was COOKING!!! A pug needs what a pug needs and that food was so enticing.

So I began small - with a little whimper. I may as well not even been in the kitchen as she did not react one iota.
So I increased my attack with a small whine . . . then a bigger whine . . . then a little bigger whine . . .
Still no reaction from my human other than a disinterested "Cut it out Noodles."

This required an all out offensive - a loud whine followed by an equally loud YIP! "That is IT!" Shouted my human "You are going to your PEN, NOW!!! I am TIRED of your BEGGING."

So she hustled me off to my pen for a "T-I-M-E O-U-T."

When I emerged 3 minutes later, my food bowl was filled with lettuce.

SCORE!
