Dog Rules

When a dog joins the family, new rules are put into place. That doesn't mean those rules stick, however.




1. The dog is not allowed in the house.


2. Okay, the dog is allowed in the house, but only in certain rooms.


3. The dog is allowed in all rooms, but has to stay off the furniture.


4. The dog can get on the old furniture only.


5. Fine, the dog is allowed on all the furniture, but is not allowed to sleep with the humans on the bed.


 Dog rules 

"Is that what you think? We'll see about that."


6. Okay, the dog is allowed on the bed, but only by invitation.


7. The dog can sleep on the bed whenever he wants, but not under the cover.


8. The dog can sleep under the cover by invitation only.


9. The dog can sleep under the cover every night.


10. The human must ask permission to sleep under the cover with the dog.
