The first message from my sister went like this, "Lilly is fake-peeing to get extra treats."
That's my little con-artist –– always working the angles!
I used to believe that dogs did not actually lie. They tell their truths, I used to think.
My friend SJL (squee! book deal! details to follow!), a seasoned owner of a small dog, assured me that perhaps they don't fib, but they do exaggerate.
When the dog tells me that she's starving –– grunt! grunt! grunt! –– there's probably a grain of truth. And if she insists on trying to convince the babysitter that she regularly gets a second dinner –– well, she might just be right.
