The Kitchen Counter Policy here at 9 Dogs Howling is very simple: NO DOGS ALLOWED. Not even one small part of a dog. Not a paw, not a chin, and most definitely not a tongue.
I thought Nina was my friend, but she turns out to be a dog subversive, because she sent me this photo of her Reiki, and as soon as my dogs saw it, they wanted to know, "Why is Reiki allowed on the counter but we're not allowed on the counter? It isn't fair!"
