How To Boil A Frog

Penny’s a shoot first, ask questions later kinda girl. But that gunslinger strategy isn’t always effective.

Like when Penny wants to snuggle with Eko, a dive-bomb or a crash-landing are not welcome from her big brother.

In fact, such tactics usually lead to an all out brawl

But in her old age Penny’s learned to be a bit more subtle in her maneuvering.

Penny starts off with just her head on the pillow. She’ll stand like this for minutes at a time

Then ever so slowly she slithers up the couch

Until finally Penny snuggles to the perfect spot. She thinks she’s pretty slick!

Eko on the other hand thinks he’s the slick one for training Penny not to jump on him

That said, I have to give this round to Penny. She’s proven the old boiled-frog story true.Rhodesian Ridgeback, blog, chicago, adventure, marking our territory

If you turn up the heat slowly, they don’t realize until it’s too late!

I’m one to talk. I’m the guy who said it wouldn’t be prudent to let the dogs up with us on the chairs. Then I said, fine, just one dog. Then…you know the rest.

Call me the Frog in Chief 

But Eko and I can’t be the only suckers. How have your pets slowly boiled you to get what they want?

I am a real frog stew! Banjo as a puppy convinced me in just a couple of weeks that my ‘no canines on the couch’ policy was in need of amendment…and he was right. We love our 54-pound lapdog!
