The Humans now have an eating place that is not the couch. It is a Table, with Chairs. This means that I cannot maintain eye contact with a Human until said Human gives me foodies. In fact, they are making me sit on my bed while they are eating. It does not matter how mournful I look; I must stay on the bed until the Humans are finished eating.
I have already established that by jumping on a Chair I can get on to the Table, but this does not work when a human is sitting on the Chair, or when the Chairs are pushed in. I have decided, however, that I am not entirely averse to the table as long as I get treats after the Humans have finished eating at it.
Today, also, the Humans poured water on my head. This, they said, is because I smelled like ‘a dog that has been rolling in grass’. I think this is a good thing because that is what I am – a dog that has been rolling in grass. I was quite content with this identity; no conflict at all, but my Humans wanted me to be ‘a dog that smells Baby Powder Fresh’. And now I am a little of both, on account of my having rolled in the grass to get the Baby Powder Fresh scent off of me as much as possible.
