As you know, your father just had surgery. He's weak and slow. He cannot play with you like you want nor can he take you for walks. I promise he still loves you despite this recent change.
I, on the other hand, have taken over all these responsibilities. This last week has been fun as I have selfishly had all your attention. You are a cute and lovable dog. However, your cuteness only goes so far.
If you don't stop ringing the bell and begging me to walk you an hour after I took you outside, you will not live to see another day. You should learn to take care of your business in a timely and complete manner. Remember, my precious baby boy, I own you; not the other way around. And trust me, your adorable expressions will not change my mind.
P.S. Thank you for reminding why I am not ready for children anytime soon.
