Moonpie isn't the smartest dog, I'll admit, but she does learn. Today she slipped out when I opened the door after her short midday walk, but when I called her back - she came! I didn't have to chase her! So I hugged her and praised her and didn't let on that I was annoyed. She's a good girl!

(Unlike a certain cat I could name who hid and I couldn't find her for her vet appointment. She is a very annoying animal. Well, I'll reschedule, it's just a follow-up, nothing critical.)
