I take no credit for my dog's good behaviour; She's an intelligent creature, and my mother is a tyrannical alpha female when it comes to training dogs. ;P

You Know You've Trained Your Dog Too Well When...

You can take her out to a restaurant
Dog-friendly, of course, put her on the seat
She won't jump off, as is other dogs' wont
Instead she sniffs at everyone she meets.
She won't leap after a piece of tissue
Or do her stuff unless its on her mat
And does not bark no matter the issue
At the neighbour's big fat tabby cat.
You can take her out for a drive downtown
And buy yourself a nice burger with cheese
Eat in the car, she'll turn and doggy-frown
As if to say, "Don't do that, if you please!"
She will come at once the minute you call
And hardly acts much like a dog at all!

Reminds me of trips to Paris and seeing pampered dogs sitting in restaurants just as you described. As Jim said, they often had better manners than their owners, making one wonder who should be training whom.

What a terrific subject for a sonnet! I enjoyed this very much.
I feel that we are getting to know your dog very well - better, in fact, than we are getting to know you.....
She sounds like a paragon of virtue but I bet she has one or two naughty habits when no-one is looking!
I had a female dog and she was much like yours, intelligent, obedient and very well-behaved to the point that my next-door neighbour didn't know we had a dog for the first three years after we moved in! My son used to introduce her as 'my little sister'! But her naughty habit was stealing tissues from the bin and shredding them ON MY BED. As punishment for leaving her at home occasionally.
Thanks for another enjoyable read.

Your dog would make a good role model for the human species!
