The Dog Rules

… These important principles. You set up a number of rules of conduct and then follow them without reservation. This runs completely smoothly, as you are a disciplined, and not emotionally driven, individual.

1. The dog must not be in the house.
2. Okay, the dog may be in the house, but only in certain rooms.
3. The dog may be in all rooms, but not in or on the furniture.
4. The dog may be in or on the old furniture.
5. Or okay, the dog can be on all furniture – but must not sleep with
the people in bed.

6. Yes, the dog can be in bed, but only when it is invited.
7. The dog is allowed to sleep in the bed, but only on top of the blanket.
8. The dog is allowed to sleep under the blanket, but only when it is invited.
9. The dog can sleep under the blanket whenever it wants.
10. People must ask permission to sleep in the bed under the covers, with the dog.

There you go.
Possibly you can interpret the Dog Rules as a kind of development process. Possibly.
