Sometimes you need to learn that saying you are sorry EVERY TIME you make the same mistake just doesn't cut it:)

The answer is CHANGING the behavior.

Boy, did I learn that the heard way last night.

I have a tendency to REALLY like when my mom and Yvonne are home ALL the time.

Since they are home bodies, that doesn't seem to be a problem for me most of the time.

But, yesterday, it was a rare case that they were gone a lot during the day.

Well, I didn't like that things were not going my way, so I pottied all over the bed.


I mean, Yvonne loves me like so much it is hard to put into words, but she was so angry that I pottied yet again on the bed (like the fourth time in a few months) that even she was not wanting to play with me last night..

And Yvonne ALWAYS wants to play with me.

I even tried my cute and charming tactic, which is sitting on her chest and trying to smooch her right on the mouth, but even that didn't work.

What I learned from this was something positive though.

Continuing to play kissy face when I literally "leave my mess" all over another person's day PROBABLY isn't going to fly any longer.

I may be cute, but sometimes my behavior isn't.

Today's Challenge: Don't apologize today, do something different. That is FAR more of an "I"m sorry" than words will ever be. I know it, too, because I have been a good girl ALL day today and guess what? I got to go to the park and for a long walk. When we change our behaviors the good DEFINITELY outweighs the bad.


  1. Oh Sam, how I love your four-legged, wagging-tailed philosophies. Imagine, change behavior and the whole world changes, right before my eyes. Thank you for your lesson today.



  2. Good for you. It's never too late to learn new tricks (=behaviors).
