Why no interest in the in-between?
Henry at seven and a half months still retains some puppy (i.e. bad) behavior. For example, he has built up his muscles to the point that he can jump on the bed. That by itself is not a problem. The problem is what he does when he's up there on the bed.
He turns down the covers, pulls out the pillows and roughs them up. No, he isn't thoughtfully fluffing the pillows up for the comfort of his beloved master. He rolls on the pillows- in an improper and impolite manner.
There's more. Henry removes dirty clothes from the laundry hamper and picks out the socks. No, he isn't thoughtfully separating the laundry into darks and lights, hot and cold loads. He carries a sock into the living room and mouths it- in a very inappropriate way.
Yes, yes. He's just a youngster, lots to learn. Thus, Henry receives and will continue to receive regular instruction on proper etiquette.
Still, doesn't it make you wonder? Why the focus on dirty stuff that has the scent of head and dirty stuff that has the scent of foot?
Why nothing in-between?
