I give up. I can't stick with Twix, it's not happening. My mom doesn't stick with it, my grandparent's don't, my brother doesn't, the hubby doesn't, and Ziggy doesn't.
I try and make it clear that I am talking to him with my voice and body language like reaching out to him and cooing and patting the floor or couch or whatever, and he's just ignoring it all. Plus, he's managed to get out of his harness a couple times the past few days, and "Twix!!!" did not help me at all whereas "Ziggy!" does.
Speaking of which, he is the worst dog in the world about walking lol. Refuses to be good even for treats.
Anyhow, I am not as bothered by this failure as I thought I would be, because even though Ziggy is not my most favorite name in the world, it is what I learned him to be, and it doesn't feel quite right calling him something else. I've learned that if I ever wind up with another rescue, to either change it's name right from the start or make sure that I like their current name well enough. You win some, you lose some I guess.
I figured I would try another week or two of "Twix" but the more it's said and the more he ignores, the less I like it anyhow haha.
