Today (April 11) is National Pet Day, and I love Tripp 'The Dog' Doren, but sometimes, like all pets, he can try my patience and make me laugh at the same time. Recently he staged a 'Sit In'.

I've recently was doing some remodeling and rearranging in the office at the Doren Manse Sports Bar & Grill. One of the items that was on the 'it's going to move list' was Tripp's bed. It's his security blanket when it storms or when I'm on the road for a few days.

Well, this four-legged family member was not happy with the idea that his bed might move, so he staged a 'Sit In'.

He would not move an inch. Tripp even tried interfering with me while I was running new lines for the computer equipment.

In the end he won, and the bed remained where it has been since his arrival to the Doren Manse Sports Bar & Grill. Don't feel too bad for him. He still seems happy in his 'Happy Place' after the remolding was complete.

Crazy, lovable dog.
