In spite of everything … the manipulations and the training you must subject them to – are they happy that you are there to mentor for them?
“Yes sometimes they get annoyed, but they enjoy my company very much. I’m very cuddly and loving.”
Finally, in your own words tell us something about both you and your 2 leggeds that the questions haven’t touched on or asked about – something unique …
“Well one day my (soon to be) human was like hmm Craigslist lemme search up “free dog”. My face popped up and voila. I’m in a loving house with loving humans. I even made a Twitter account and made many loving friends (like you)”
