>If you have ever had a puppy you will recognize the behavior. High
>Schoolers, in dog years, are only two. They look grown up and just when
>you think you can trust them, they jump up on the company when they come to
>the door, pee on the carpet, and cannot be trusted in the kitchen when a
>pie is left unattended on the counter. It is the nature of the beast. It
>doesn't make them bad dogs, just puppies, not yet ready for prime time.
>Let's hope the kid learned more from this lesson than you did.
