You ain't just woofin'

Our dog Sassafras has me very well trained. She was supposed to be my wife's dog -- I never wanted a dog -- but there she is, and she knows just how to get me to do what she wants. She rings the doorbell, and I come running to let her in. She comes into the room and patiently waits for me to notice her, but doesn't settle in anywhere, and I get up and let her out. I come home in the afternoon, and she's right there to take me for a walk. She's very good at organizing my life.

I guess you could say that I'm just puppy-whipped.
