|Maisy had "Maverick" right where she wants him!|
Specifically, according to Merriam/Webster, "indulge" means: "the behavior or attitude of people who allow themselves to do what they want or who allow other people to do what they want
: the act of doing something that you enjoy but that is usually thought of as wrong or unhealthy
As you can see, Maisy has a strong influence on "Maverick." I wouldn't allow Maisy to sit on MY lap whilest eating at the table. But her whining and brown pleading eyes turned "Maverick's" heart to melted butter; hence she gets a seat of honour on his lap.
There are ground rules:
1. No sniffing the plate.
2. No licking the plate or table.
3. No paws resting on the side of the table.
4. A bite (small one) will be given by "Papa M." if Maisy is a good girl and follows all the rules.
So, would you say that Maisy is spoiled? (Please do not answer truthfully!) I prefer to call her indulged.
