Biscuit the Chihuahua: How do I get what I want?

Dear Paws to Talk,

I want to relax on that big fluffy thing the humans sit on. It looks so comfortable and like a wonderful place to stash my precious chew toy. Every time I get up there, they push me off. How do I get what I want?

-Biscuit the Chihuahua

Howl Biscuit,

If you are like me then we are sophisticated animals who enjoy comfort. It is no surprise you want to lounge on the fluffy thing or couch as the humans call it.

If you jump up on the couch while the humans are sitting on it, you are setting yourself up for failure.

Take a different approach, jump up on the couch while they are not looking. Enjoy human opulence. Hide your chew toy in between the cushions so no one else gnaws on it. As soon as a human passes by the room jump off before they yell at you. They will think you are very smart.

Just because you don’t have enough treats to buy your own couch, doesn’t mean you can’t get what you want. Soak up the luxury when you can.

Woof,

Bella
