You're cool, Franklin!
I'm a black lab too! My name is Remy. My boyfriend, Shiro, is also a black lab. Would you like to be pals? I think everything you do for your older sister is very sweet. Your family is lucky to have found you! I've got it pretty good too. Sometimes my people sit on the floor if my sister Brooke and I are hogging the couch and loveseat! They won't even move us. (We've got them trained, don't we?!?)
But, kinda like you, I don't like when someone is sitting in the spot I want. I'll tell you a trick....go to the door and cry like you have to go out and then when the person gets up, run and jump in their warm spot on the couch. It works every time! And, it makes them laugh too and give you attention because they're always amazed at how smart you are for doing that!!
Hope we can be pals!
Come visit me, Brooke, Remy
