Missed you while you were gone! What great news for both you and Charlie! She is a beautiful little girl. I didn't realize that the grooming was so intense for Cairn Terriers. Your latest pictures show such a light in her eyes. Congratulations all around. Everybody wins...I just wish the breeder would find a new way to make money...
Thanks for the comment, I might come back later when I am not so sensitive! LOL, we'll see. Mike wrote me a little note calling politics a circus, I know that there are probably alot of wonderful people there but I have enough drama for a while. but i won't rule coming back out. Thanks again!
You'll have to let me know if i stirred up a hornets nest on go corgi. Maybe i am to stressed out with the stuff at home, and work, and maybe a little sensitive because of the stress. However I just broke after reading those three go at it in another thread, the one about the ownership styles that is framed and centered in on the forum home page. besides it is a little difficult for me to easily navigate, and i guess I just prefer this site. Thanks for the advice and the friendship!
Thanks for the advise! All of those are great ideas! LOL! especially the first one! I had thought of staring one on one training but I was afraid of confusing him. but maybe we can impress the boy with our tricks! Thanks for the concern, I have learned so mush from this site and the people on it!
I am going to pull our discussion away from her blog: I don't know if i will win that battle, He is convinced that Rusty will know that he can treat him differently than he treats me. GRRR. It is certainly submissive, he squatts, shakes and runs to a safe spot. He doesn't do it as often with me, maybe a total of 3 times. it is more often with the boyfriend. That is one of the reasons I want a dog of my own is my boyfriend is setting me in a position where rusty feels he is above me and doesn't want to respect me. He grabs my arm and tries to pull me down when he greets me and will try to bowl me over as i walk.
Thanks Chris, crazy to add one more, but hey once you cross the line...Funny thing. Lizzie is usually a jerk to new dogs...she has always been a bit of a curmudgeon...I say that lovingly...but she has accepted Fern and has not so much as curled a lip at her. Hopefully it's not just the honeymoon. But it is encouraging. Seems like it was meant to be. Hopefully the incontinence issue can be dealt with, but she is home no matter what.
Your welcome for the leash walking tips. Leash training has been a sometimes frustrating experience for Charlie and I, but we finally go over the worst part. I know it is hard to find time for training sometimes.
Thanks for the comments on the photos. My fur-kids all fight to sit in the "yellow chair" since it's right behind my desk chair at the computer. In the evening, I get to sit in the yellow chair and they all pile on top of me. LOL
