That's not good

That seems to be the universal response when I tell people about this:

Fortunately, we have a fenced yard. So the biggest problem with this is that when I ask the The Kid to let the dogs out, he now replies that he is busy, and I should tell Thomas to do it.

And yes, yes that is dog snot on my door. We have that in abundance.

Toots, if only.

When I was in law school, our next door neighbor had trained his small dog to get into the refrigerator and fetch a beer. He had a dish towel attached to the handle that the dog pulled, and the beers on the lowest shelf.

But Thomas would just drink the beer himself.

My CAT likes beer too!

If I have a beer and he knows he has to bother me to lick the top. I dunno. Rascal my late ferret had a thing for red wine. I would always warn my friend when she sat her glass on the floor and sure enough guess whos's snout was in there drinking it in like 2 seconds!
