Sam’s Corner 23

Many of you have heard me talk about Raylan, the little blonde tornado. Yes, she’s my little sister, and yes she has a lot of energy. And no, she doesn’t have a lot of self-control. (That’s why daddy has to keep her in the office at times.)

The truth is, I love her. We’re best friends. We play all the time, and we often snuggle when we take naps, and she’s lots of fun to play with.


But there are times when Raylan pushes things too far. Sometimes when we play she thinks she needs to take everything from me. True, dogs will play keep-away for fun. But when I’m done playing, it’s not always fun.

When Raylan does those things, my daddy says I “show her who’s boss.” I don’t really know what that means, I just have to tell her “no.”

Sometimes I see it’s like that for people too. We can love someone, and they can be our best friend. But there are still times when we need to tell them “no.” That’s ok. Friends will understand. And when it’s time, you can go back to wrestling on the floor together!
