Lessons for Humans from Teddy

Dear Humans,
There is a big difference between humans and dogs. Cause and effect. Humans understand this relationship, dogs don't. Because we don't understand the relationship, occasionally we get ourselves into some sticky situations. Here is an example: When playing with a ball, if you push the ball under a couch, you no longer can play with the ball. Humans understand this and don't push the ball under the couch. Dogs push the ball under the couch and bark at it.
Another example: When you break the rules, you have to suffer the consequences. Humans don't like to break the rules because they don't like the consequences. Dogs jump on the bed anyway and look what happens:
Here is another shot:
That's right. When you jump on the bed in my house, you have to wear a bra, get laughed at and have your picture taken.

Here is the big difference between humans and dogs, though. Was jumping on the bed worth the ridicule? Absolutely! So comfy. So cozy. So much attention for doing so. So here is the lesson, my two-legged friends. Sometimes it is okay to live life without concern for the consequences! Break the rules! Push the ball under the couch! Someone will get it for you and you can go right on playing!

I just hope you look as cute in a bra as I do!

Love, Teddy
