I’ve said it here many times before that when Marlo wants to help she does the opposite. One of her favorite parts of our morning routine is feeding the dogs “treats” which are really just a few morsels of their dog food. At first she was just grabbing a handful of their food and throwing it in the air before I had let them out to go to the bathroom. This distracted both of them, obviously, and neither dog would go outside to pee or poop. Would you want to go to the bathroom if someone was throwing chocolate truffles at your face?
I finally convinced her to wait until after the dogs come back inside. And here she is, princess pajamas and puppy purse, teasing the dogs one treat at a time. She looks like she’s conducing the music in sacrament meeting which this is pretty much the closest she’s ever going to come to religion, Mom.
