||Dog earns a big hug and a scrumptious
treat when she sits, stays, and dances on her back paws
for her owner. “Good Dog. Smart Dog, the very best Dog,”
says her owner, as she puts Dog in “charge” of their five
cats, while the family goes out shopping. Proudly,
Dog begins her training. But….. when she commands the cats
to sit, and stay, oh no, 1,2,3,4,5 cats don’t obey, in
fact they disappear. Brilliantly, Dog pulls out the “Good
Kitty,” treats to train the cats, except the treats smell
too good. Can Dog stay in charge? (Pennsylvania
