“I pulled Mommy down in the snow and fractured her rib.”
I was walking down a hill in the snow and Eleanor decided to abruptly turn around and at full speed run UP the hill. This caused me to lose my footing and fall down on the retractable leash, fracturing my rib. After I fell, she thought I was playing and jumped on me. When I screamed in agony, she felt bad, I think…
I fart every time I get my tail brushed. It stinks! Harley is very hairy and regularly needs brushing, he doesn’t love it and his way of protesting is releasing his potent smells so I have to leave him alone!
Our dog trainer taught us that “leave it” was one of the most important commands you could teach a dog, that way if they ever got something in their mouth that could make them ill, the dog would know to ditch it right away. Buster has a pretty good grasp of “leave it” because (as our trainer taught us to), we reward him immediately and we reward him well for remembering the command. Tonight, however, Buster held this banana in his mouth FOREVER after being given the “leave it” command. I seriously think he needed the extra time to weigh the merits between banana and hot dog slice.
