we don't even dare

It was 1:00 in the a.m. when Ollie started crying. I let him out of his crate and followed him. I thought he would head to the front door, where he usually waits to be taken outside (to take care of business). But instead he walked into the bathroom. He put his front paws on the tub, then turned his head to look at me. Our puppy was requesting a mid-night bath.
In the past month I've spent probably way too much time and effort trying to crack the code of the puppy thought process. Every day he seems to have something new figured out. He's learned that human food is better than puppy food. That the best place to sit in the vet's office is in the corner beneath the chair. That not all toddlers are to be trusted. That hiding treats in the couch means buried treasures later. That chewing socks is bad, so it's best to be out of sight when doing so. And that the tub means water. I gave him some drinking water instead of drawing a bath. He seemed satisfied and went back to sleep.
