This is one of the many reasons why you should vote for Tierce in the Fido Casting Call contest. You can vote every day!
Tierce: I never get to tell you where to go.
Me: You certainly try. Come to think of it, maybe that’s why my rotator cuff is damaged.
Tierce: I may try to influence you.
Me: That’s pulling, not influencing.
Tierce: Oh, so you influence me into the tub? You influence me onto the grooming table? You influence me into the vet’s office?
Me: No, that’s called ‘dragging you in, kicking and screaming and disgracing yourself’.
Tierce: Conscientious objection is not disgraceful.
