January 5 — We hate the sound of explosions. Unfortunately for us, we have neighbors who STILL think the loud booms of the firecrackers would drive away bad luck from the past year. A few of them even extend their noise-fest until January 6.
It’s annoying and irritating but it gives me an inspiration for mischief — breaching the Nursery/Overseer’s room without being punished. (I used to play there but since the arrival of her newborn baby, it becomes a restricted area for us.) My protege Hershey the Shih Tzu has never been there; she wants to get in so she gamely follows my instructions.
First, let the room owner know that you’re outside the door. Keep calm to show your good intentions… and wait.
Second, lean against the door when you hear the sound of firecrackers. Squeeze your head and body through the little opening… and enter.
Third and last, swiftly move to the nearest safe spot of the room ( in this case, under the crib) and stay there for a while. Put on your scared/cute face and refrain from barking.
