Dogs don’t like being pushed, as I discovered when the dog started lifting his leg on my plants, back when he was a teenager. Whenever I saw him doing it, all the “nos” and disapproving noises in the world didn’t have much effect, so I started strolling casually up to him and giving him a gentle push to put him off balance. These days, whenever I see him eyeing a new area speculatively and shuffling into position, I know exactly what to do. After a few such incidences, he decides it’s best to go pee in his own patch, and leave mine alone.

    A word from the Alpha Bitch

    Okay, I admit it – while I might scoff at dog owners who treat their Poopsies or Schnookums like babies, my dogs also think my name is Mum. I’d like to believe, however, that my dogs also know me as The Alpha Bitch, more commonly known in canine as “the bitch who must be obeyed, dogdammit!” - The AB
