There's a new dog lady in town
And the dog ...
... Can get away with most things just by showing his puppy eyes.
I kid you not.
He is to run after the tennis ball
But chooses to play tug-of-war with his leash.
Though the tennis ball will always be of interest.
He retrieves anything and everything he fancies. Everything in sight is also a chew toy.
Owning a dog is a huge responsibility. This 30-lb (and growing!) fur ball requires attention, exercise to keep him from boredom, 2-weekly visits to the Vet for his puppy shots and you will also get free buckets of saliva when dog kisses are in order.
House training is another matter. We are nowhere near the word successful - let's blame those puppy eyes. He definitely knows the right thing to do but perseveres on what HE WANTS TO DO. To quote Person A "Sounds like someone I know!"
And I am guilty.
Though the joy he has brought into our lives trumps the pocket garden he destroyed, wiped out and demolished.
I need Cesar Millan.
