Yesterday when Bob went to check the mail, I decided that I wanted to go outside too, so I followed him out the door and ducked behind the planter by the door. He saw me come out, so he hollered in to Monika that I was out and then started talking to me and watching me. Monika came to the door and told me to get my butt back inside, so I tried to get her to chase me down the path, but Bob caught me instead and handed me to her. Then she told me that if I wanted to go outside I had to let her put the harness and leash on me so she could come along. No thanks, it's only fun if I am free to explore on my own.
