Default Annoying game

Princess is now a year old, great dog, funny, smart. Love that Chow attitude.....BUT.....lately she's playing a game with me and I'm not sure exactly what the right way to handle it is.

Since its gotten cold out, she loves being outside. Most of the time she comes in when I call but at least once in a evening she plays this annoying game with me, almost always after dark. I will call her, she will stay put and play quiet. I get worried and call her until I hear her whining. I decide I'm not going to keep calling her for her to ignore me, let her stay out. I close the door and no sooner will I walk away she will be at the back door whining. I think she's cold, needs to come in, I go open the door and she takes off like lightening, sits and whines. I tell her to come on, she continues to sit and whine. I shut the door and she runs back to the door and whines! Its so annoying and I feel like its some kind of power game she's playing with me.

She doesnt do this to me all the time, and after she's played this game she comes in all hyper and wanting to play. I dont want to do it wrong and create a monster out of her. Do you think its a harmless game, or should I give her one chance then ignore her for 15 mins or so? Its just hard to ignore when its so bitter cold out or its cold and raining out.
