White Dog holds party manners in high regard; to her a two- or four-legged person's politeness says a great deal about his or her caliber. In part that is why White Dog gets so upset at Quinn's atrocious manners (in part, to be fair, it is also because she worries that he will get "something" without earning it as she must). I heard White Dog "woof" a warning to Quinn before she came rushing in to tattle on him, but he did not take her advice. When I followed the prancing girl (who kept looking back to make sure I was not going to miss the bust) to the kitchen we both discovered Quinn, standing on hind legs, giraffe-necking to reach the marinading roast. I cleared my throat. He looked over disinterestedly. White Dog told him to get down and he ignored her. "Quinn, NO! Get off the counter!" I sternly commanded. He got off the counter but as we turned to walk away, he resumed his "surfing." "Momma said NO!" I repeated pushing him off and away. White Dog barked him out of the kitchen and out the dog door. I moved the roast to higher ground to remove temptation. "Thank dog, he starts school tomorrow," White Dog sighed, shaking her head.
