Things Vizslas Must Try To Remember
(from the Vizsla Listserv)
Bob Bennett suggested a few more things that Vizslas need to remember:
My master is not a human pillow and I theoretically have my own very nice
Just once I can resist the urge to follow my master when he/she walks
into another room.
After 500 retrieves maybe I shouldn't bark and point for another one.
I can easily knock people over at the dog park if I am chasing
another dog at 30 mph.
I should not lean on strangers or rub my behind on them just because
of a cheap pat.
I can get anything I want if I wait long enough and look so cute.
I will not play tug-of-war with Dad's underwear when he's on the toilet.
The garbage collector is NOT stealing our stuff.
I do not need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm lying under the coffee table.
I will not roll my toys behind the fridge.
I must shake the rainwater out of my fur BEFORE entering the house.
I will not eat the cats' food, before or after they eat it.
I will stop trying to find the few remaining pieces of clean carpet in the house when I am
about to throw up.
I will not throw up in the car.
I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish, crabs, horse nuggets, etc.
"Kitty box crunchies" are not food.
I will not eat any more socks and then redeposit them in the backyard after processing.
The diaper pail is not a cookie jar.
I will not wake Mommy up with my cold, wet nose on her bottom.
I will not chew my human's toothbrush and not tell them.
When in the car, I will not insist on having the window rolled down when it's raining
We do have a doorbell, but I will not bark each time I hear one on TV.
I will not steal my Mom's underwear and dance all over the backyard with it.
The sofa is not a face towel. Neither are Mom & Dad's laps.
My head does not belong in the refrigerator.
I will not bite the officer's hand when he reaches in for Dad's driver's license and car
