Ms. Pie likes to assert her authority now and again. Here she shows Seth who is boss around here. Usually, she is quite good natured about this, but Mr. W., The Miracle Dog Person, says, "No, not good natured. Calculating. Manipulative. She is all about being in charge..." Geesh, I say. Guess an old dog can learn tricks (that would be me!). Truthfully, Ms. Pie will do just about anything for a treat, even open the door to her crate and go in and sit! And, she knows all the words and spellings for "dinner" and "lake" and "river" and "walk." I'm not kidding.
