Mom says I have to learn to not bark and growl when I am at work, or I am going to get fired!
I‘ve been reprimanded.
Not even begging for the food Mom has in her hand.
It is social commentary, not barking. You are entitled to an opinion.

Apparently not at work, I’m not. 😦
That’s a toughie Lexi. I have problems with running away and you are too aggressive. There must be a happy medium. My friend up here is that way with men. She barks till she needs a muzzle…..not good and she is in obedience school! So its a tough one to control, Lexi.
It is hard. I don’t know what I am going to do. 😦
You can do it. Think positive my friend. Ask your mom to give you a treat each time you don’t bark when you usually would bark. That sounds fair to me.
I really like that idea! It’s about the same as what Mr. Colin said. Now, if she would only remember!! I will try to remind her, because I don’t want to get fired!
Clearly we both need anger management or something because I’ve been getting reprimanded for the same thing. I think it’s time for a vacation. What do you think?
Trip! Trip! Trip! Let’s go, boyfriend!
Where to this time? You pick!
I growled again at someone else just before we left. I may be fired AND grounded!
Surely there was a good reason for it?!
Of course there was. It was early, I was ahead of her coming into the church and I was protecting my place of work. Sure, she works there too,but I know I can intimidate her!
No barking and growling??? Aargh! I wonder how your mom would like it if she had to work all day without talking…
Love and licks,
Yes, I agree. She said employees who misbehave have to be reprimanded, though. This is my second warning and it is going in my file, whatever that is.
that was rather insulting of her! DakotasDen
Getting fired isn’t all that bad. You get to sleep in and collect unemployment benefits. It’s not for me, however. I love my job which is keeping everyone else in the house in line.
Dad really, really doesn’t want me to get fired….I don’t understand….then I get to spend the whole day at home with him!
Hi Lexi – You tell your Mum that you have reasons to bark and growl and, given that she is supposedly the superior intellect, she must work out what those reasons are and then convince you that barking and growling is not necessary in those circumstances. Been there… done that …….. learned! Woof! Ray.
Maybe so, Ray, but she says she cannot have me acting like that at my church workplace and I will have to stay home if I don’t learn fast. She is using the program Colin mentioned, but it doesn’t help when I am climbing the outside steps and see someone coming behind us.
It takes time buddy. Once my Mum and Dad knew what to do, it took me about a year to be consistently relaxed around other people and, even now, an odd person comes along who bothers me. My Dad says that he sometimes meets people who he is uncomfortable with for some unknown reason, so I think that I am pretty normal. Woof! Ray
