steve tells me a veteran with ptsd had not slept for more than an hour at a time til he got his dog... now sleeps 7 hours... now that.... i can train a dog for !
there aare some wonderful pictures of bella and george in the same bed sharing the same blanket with only their 2 heads showing... there does exist a video of geroge and bella coming down the stairs somewhere,,, and george is watching her movements byt the 1/4 inch at a time... even to where she starts to step down a step and changes her mind-- and his foot starts to step down and withdraws it when she does...
a perfect example of why you should not interupt a dog who is caring for their person...
ok george is a perfect dog-- thrilled with his job...i have also seen a video where he very nearly bites bella's mom.. rachael picked up bella and was swinging her around while bella giggled...apparently she giggled a bit mor loudly than usual becasue george did not like it and jumped up on rachael and clearly said "STOP THAT" --- lucklly she stopped... she's no fool... he is big... and accurate...
150 POUND DOG WITH AN OPINION MUST BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY.. MAKING ME WONDER...... NOW HERE IS ANOTHER CRAZY IDEA....
WHY THE POLICE DON'T USE MORE DOGS--- MIGHT MAKE FOR FEWER DEATHS BY GUNFIRE. I HAVE BEEN THRU THE LECTURE TO MY KIDS ( NOW OVER 50...) "IF THE POLICE TELL YOU TO STOP -- YOU DO JUST THAT AND DO NOT MOVE" BUT THERE ARE MANY WHO DON'T STOP FOR THE POLICE.. NOW IF WE TRAINED DOGS A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY... AND HAVE IT WITH OR WITHOUT THE IMMEDIATE BITE.. "FREEZE FOR THE DOG" AND HAVE THE DOG TRAINED JUST TO CIRCLE UNTIL TOLD TO BITE....... I BET YOU COULD GO HAVE COFFEE AND COME BACK AND THAT PERSON WOULD BE STANDING RIGHT THERE.
I CAN SEE IT NOW... GET A GUY OUT OF A CAR, TELL HIM " IF YOU MOVE HE WILL BITE"....TELL THE DOG TO "WATCH HIM" AND YOU WOULD NT NEED HANDCUFFS. IT WOULD E A SIMPLE THING TO TEACH A DOG "BITE ON ANY MOVEMENT" DOGS LOVE TO BITE-- IF YOU WATCH SMALL PUPPIES... THIER IDEA OF HEAVEN IS TO BITE SOMETHING -- OR ANOTHER PUPPY AND DRAG IT AROUND.
WE WOULD WANT THAT TYPE TRAINING INSTEAD OF TEH "ATTACK IN ANGER TYPE" MORE LIKE WE DO WHEN FEEDING-- WAIT UNTIL STEVE MOVES HIS FINGER 1/8 INCH AND DIVE IN - HAVE A GOOD TIME CHEWING UP THIS PERSON WHO MOVED. SO WHAT IS A FEW HOLES.
I HAVE BEEN AROUND ANIMALS TOO LONG NOT TO NOTICE MALE PEOPLE TEND TO WANT TO DEFY OTHER MALE PEOPLE AND FIGHT. YET THERE IS AN INATE FEAR OF DOGS, IF A DOG IS STARING AT A GUY, NO GUY IN THE WORLD IS GOING TO SAY "MAKE ME" TO THE DOG... A FEW NEWS VIDEOS OF THIS IN ACTION WOULD TRAIN THE GENERAL PUBLIC
I WOULD ALSO BET AT LEAST $1.57 THAT IF A DOG SAID "GET OUT OF THAT AIRLINE SEAT" THE GUY WOULD HAVE GOT UP AND WALKED OUT.
I DON'T KNOW...BACK A FEW YEARS, I ALWAYS TOOK AN AISLE SEAT SO IF THE STAFF CAME ON AND STARTED OFFERING MONEY TO GET OFF, I WAS UP AND RUNNING... TRUE STORY... AND I DID WELL AT THIS BACK WHEN IT WAS $400 TO TAKE THE NEXT FLIGHT.
I HAD AN EAMILS... RE BLEEDING TAILS...
i have tried stuff from pipe foam insulation to spray on .... ..etc... but i find... less is better..
i now put on a 1 inch bandaid-- even the lighter variety if you can find it..
and they don't know it is there.
I FORGOT THE PERSON.... BUT TEH DOG IS KRINGLE.
What a great day!
I hiked for the first time in over two and half years!
Yes, it was slow. Yes, it wasn't far, but I did it!
Kringle made it possible.
When I got dizzy we just stopped and I leaned on my four legged friend.
It was such a great way to start my day!!!!
