Pet them now and then.  Give them some affection.
Feed them at least once a day.
Make sure they have plenty of fresh water.
Teach them to come when called.
Establish where they are allowed to be and where they aren't.
Make sure they bark at strangers.
Let them outside to run around now and then.
Clean up their bodily messes.
Provide opportunities to socialize.
Strictly forbid biting...unless it is an unwanted stranger.

There you have it.  How to parent.  Watch for me on Oprah.


  1. Somehow I knew you were talking about kids! It would be funny if it wasn't true. My poor A & J. Send them out here and they can run outside in the chicks & tiggers.

  2. That's funny Julie. I even know what chicks and tiggers are. Duh!

  3. Cute :) Except I don't watch Oprah, but I'd do it if you were on :)

  4. This a classic example of the comic technique of "bait-and-switch" writing. Well done!


I love to hear your thoughts!
