Farley's training, part 5: the wrap-up

I should think that the real reason that Elly doesn't much care for the idea of obedience training is that she doesn't really want it to succeed. After all, if he does learn to behave, not only would that deprive her of something to complain about, it would mean that John was right to have suggested it. Neither possibility would be something that would sit very well with Elly. We know her too well not to realize that she'd prefer a Farley she can resent and worry about to a Farley that would do her proud. Her whole raison-d'etre is based on never praising anyone for anything at any time so having a dog she'd have to say "Good Boy" to is the height of unfairness.
