Conversation with Bear


Frances: Hi Bear – how are you?  
huh? Who are you?  
Frances: I’m a friend of your mom.  She asked if I could talk with you.
oh ok.  
Frances: Honey I know you are a puppy and have so much energy.  Your mom is concerned when you don’t listen to her.  She and the family love you very much.  
Why did they send me away?
Frances: They sent you to a special puppy school to learn your manners.  To learn how to behave with your family.  To learn to go pee and poo outside.  
So are they going to send me away again?
Frances: No honey – they love you and want you to stay in their family.  It is important that you behave by not jumping or biting anyone.  The people who come to your house are friendly and not going to harm anyone.  Does that make sense to you?  
I guess so but I thought I was supposed to protect them.  
Frances: You are honey, but only when there is a danger – not everyone is bad, everyone is good until they show you otherwise.  To let mom know someone is there you can do one bark.  If there is danger then you can bark more – no jumping or biting on anyone.  
What is my job then?  
Frances: Your job is to be a loving companion for the boys and Quinn.  
But Quinn doesn’t play back.
Frances: I know honey that’s because he is older – but be kind to him ok?)  
ok so I can play with the boys?
Frances: Yes honey – but outside – not in the house – you need to be a gentle dog in the house.  No running or horseplay in the house.  Please calm down when you are inside.  
What does “calm” mean?
Frances: Taking things slower – walk slower, move slower, behave in a slower way.  Take your time eating, there will always be enough food for you.  Share your toys with Quinn – even if he doesn’t act like he wants to play – show him you will share with him. 
There are lots of toys and the food is really good.  Is it ok if I sit next to mom when she is working or talking on the phone?
Frances: If you are still and quiet I’m sure mom won’t mind. She loves you very much and want you to be a loving part of the family.  Please understand they chose you because you are special – they love you very much.
Wow – so I’m not going to have to live anyplace else? This is my home for real?  
Frances: Yes honey – this is your home and your family – and love them as much as they love you.  Do you think you can do that?
Yes – oh thank you for talking with me.  
Frances: You’re very welcome Bear – bye bye.
