Ok- we all have "interesting" rules in our homes for the coexistence of humans and pets.  We also know that there need to be boundaries and we are usually pretty good with setting up the initial rules but somehow things seem to get blurred and our resolve slips away and soon K9 and/or Feline anarchy exists.  A client sent this to me and I thought it was wonderful example of how our pets somehow seem to take over our lives. 

The Dog Rules :
The dog is not allowed in the house.
Okay, the dog is allowed in the house, but only in certain rooms.
The dog is allowed in all rooms, but has to stay off the furniture.
The dog can get on the old furniture only.
Fine, the dog is allowed on all the furniture, but is not allowed to sleep with the humans on the bed.
Okay, the dog is allowed on the bed, but only by invitation.
The dog can sleep on the bed whenever he wants, but not under the covers.
The dog can sleep under the covers by invitation only.
The dog can sleep under the covers every night.
Humans must ask permission to sleep under the covers with the dog.

I'd love to hear anybody's inputs about their particular " Dog Rules" ( or Cat rules)
