It's not only YOU that Alpha is ignoring. I'm getting a fair bit of ignorance -- I mean ignoring -- from her, TOO! She's gone all the time, and she just never wants to do what I want to do anymore -- such as throwing the toy or going to visit people or dogs I want to visit, or feeding me extra treats.
But I'll tell you one thing -- she always has time to give me a bath when I don't want one. Or time to make me go out for a quick walk when it's raining or dark out -- and you know how much I hate the dark! Or she really has plenty of time to tell me to "go lie down" or to disturb my nice nap on her lap by bumping me with her knitting all the damn time.
I've just about HAD it with her.
She did finally take me for a real nice walk yesterday. Well, at least it started out nice, all until I got burdocks in three of my paws. OUUUUUCH!
But I will give her this: She did stop when I looked at her with owie eyes and pull those things out of my feet. She can be nice when she wants to be. Then again, she sort of took away all her goodwill when she brought me home and gave me a bath and a brushing. *sigh* When am I ever going to teach her?
I've tried ev-er-y-thing to get her attention, and she is barkin' oblivious.
