Yesterday was five months since Weezie's "gotcha day." It's been a roller coaster, and I'm still not sure things are settled down, at least not as much as I'd like. She got a little snippy/snappy about a toy last evening when I was playing with her, so I had to take it away from her. Sigh. More work ahead. But I'm trying everything possible to make it work out. If I can just keep her from running away! Tomorrow might be another day care adventure.

THAT DOG!

In our dog-world, we all went skiing and Buster doesn't do so well in the car (eats seatbelts) so I called my Dad to come over and pick him up around lunchtime and take him to his house until we got home. Buster loaded up okay but they didn't get a block away before he started crying and fussing so bad they just drove around the block and let him whiz on a few spots then back into the house... Awwww. 

 
Can do you one better, when he was a pup, Spock chewed the piece that the seatbelt clips into like it was a bone. It was the kind with a system to absorb shock in a crash and cost a small fortune to replace.

Nope, but thanks for the thought. That's what they sent home with her, and it was COMPLETELY useless for her. My trainer has got us working with a prong collar, since a "gentle leader" head harness didn't work either. The prong collar is getting through her tough head not to pull. I have really bad hands (going to need joint replacement surgery on at least one thumb sooner rather than later) and I can't have a dog that pulls.

Weezie just made another break for it. I was going to take her for a walk, and had taken her in the back 40 on the long line, then switched it to the prong collar on the front porch and as we stepped off, I tugged on it ... and it snapped! She was OFF like a shot. She stopped briefly to play in the street with the neighbor's dog and then headed down to the apartments, where she (I think) pooped and then found a bowl of cat food outside someone's flat. I caught her there. Such a sickening feeling. Maybe we won't go for a walk. I think I fixed the collar, but ... guh. {#Eyes}

I took Weezie to the doggie day care center again this morning, for another half day. I couldn't tell if her whining was excited or just anxiety. We'll see. {#Good-vibes}

I've only ever seen Edgar in our bathroom once. But I KNOW he liked the guest bath (the one you used when you visited), because there was a slow drip in the faucet. Dunno why he had to rub his dirty butt against the side of the tub while getting his drink.

Both of ours will do that - and occasionally slip and fall in. Then there's a mad scramble.

And so, today, Weezie and I had a very good, long walk around the neighborhood. Started with a little off-lead time in a neighbor's fenced back yard, with some recall work. Then she did really well NOT pulling as we did our usual 1.5+ mile walk through town. My frustration level was l-o-w which felt great. I did drop the lead at one point and almost panicked before I managed to put my foot down on it. She hadn't made a move to run, but still ... after yesterday ... {#Eek}
