She's cute, she's clever, but she sure is trouble!
Cesar Millan, you're great and all, but I can't quite master 'no touch, no talk, no eye contact' with Meri. Come on, look at that face!
So she likes to steal things from the coffee table and runs out the dog door with them...What kind of things you ask? A pair of eyeglasses, a pair of sunglasses (this dog is costing me a fortune), letters, pencils, earrings, a friend's wallet (mostly recovered apart from the chewed bank card--sorry!)...and basically anything else she can put in her mouth.
And I taught her to give me a hug when I get home and now she thinks it's okay to jump up on visitors.
