Sassy Pants

Lately Milton has been, well, a... sassy pants.  There is no other way to describe it.

If you know me, you know that I tend to do a little inner monologue for Milton, like I am his "human" voice.  It's really not a big deal.  Don't laugh; if you are a dog owner, you do it too -- you know you do.  Catching Milton in these two above situations makes me wonder if he thinks he might be a human or at least part human.

Milton:  "Momma, are you a dog?  I've just been wondering, Momma.  I mean, how else could you possibly be my momma?  Um, I've been sitting on the couch lately, like you, Mom, and I've been trying really hard to walk on my two hind legs too."

Oh, the tough issues that arise when you are a Dog Mom are never ending.  We might need to sit the Milt Dog down for a little talk soon.  It's probably better if I do it than his dad; his dad can be a tad more blunt and outspoken with our little man.  I can break it much more easily to the Milt that while yes, he is a dog, he's just like a son to us.

  1. ssssssssssssssassy! I try to have these conversations with Stanlee but he's always chewing on a tennis ball and it distracts me. I think he knows this and does it on purpose so he doesn't have to listen.
