You get what you pet

And raise what you praise.

So if you let the puppy out of the crate when she’s whining, she’ll whine whenever you put her in the crate. I understand this and am determined to raise a perfect dog.

At the office, Isis yelped at me while I was trying to type something. I really didn’t want my coworkers to think she was disruptive, so what did I do? I picked her up and held her on my lap, letting her chew the zipper on my sweatshirt while I typed.

Great parenting, huh?
