This letter is from me and my doggy sister. We have a dilemma. We are very good dogs. Mom says we are sweet and cute and that all the neighbor dogs are jealous. We are very well behaved, most of the time. However, when people or dogs walk by the fence in our back yard, we run to the gate and bark at them. Mom and Dad call us back. About half of the time we come back and lay down. The other half we just stay and bark and bark and bark.
Yes we see mom coming to get us and yes we hear her telling us no, but we can't seem to pull ourselves away. You see, we think our yard extends as far as we can see. That means past the fence, across the street and even further into the neighbors yard. We have learned not to bark at the neighbors, or their company, who share a fence with us. But seem to be having a rough time with the passers by on the road.
We really want to be good girls. It makes us sad to see the disappointment in mommy's eyes when we don't come away from our little bark fest and we don't like being put in the house for a time out. We always get to come back out, but for that small fraction of time we are separated from mom and dad and we don't like it. How can we be really good girls at the fence?
