ANOTHER SHORTIE-- JUDY AND I HAVE A SOME appearence IN CHELMSF0RD- ABOUT A N HOUR AWAY AND SUPPOSED TO SET UP AT 7-- I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS... JUDY BOOKS THESE-- ALL I HAVE TO DO IS SHOW UP WITH 2 DOGS... ( THE EASY OPART) dogs ARE HAving an early breakfast.. hopefully that gets their bowels going 2 hours ahead of tiem
see the details i have to worry about????
when out with danes in a crowd- i have a hard time being polite about rumors people have heard and believe about danes
"pity they don't live beyond six years"-- ME... " THAT IS BENTLEY- HE'S TEN-- MY OLDEST WAS 14" ( SO I LIE A LITTLE--
BENT IS ?(9?)
THEN THERE IS THE PERSON WHO STICKS OUT THEIR FINGER AT BENTLEY AND SAYS "SIT"-"I THOUGHT YOU SAID HE WAS TRAINED" AND ..ME... I THINK......." HE IS FULLY TRAINED NOT TO BE BULLIED BY PEOPLE WHO SCREAM STUPID COMMANDS AT HIM"
AN AWFUL LOT OF DOG TRAINING LOOKS TO ME LIKE "SEE WHAT I CAN MAKE MY DOG DO" WHILE THE DOG IS THINKING "SEE HOW I HAVE TRAINED MY OWNER TO FEED ME TREATS"
I DO THINK LITTLE DOGS ARE LESS INCLINED TO BE PROPERLY TRAINED BECAUSE WHETHER PUPS OR OLDER DOGS, WHEN THEY DON'T BEHAVE SOMEONE SIMPLY PICKS THEM UP AND CARRIES TEHM AROUND. "IT'S QUICKER"
or.... "ISN'T SHE CUTE"- ME..."I AM GLAD YOU ASKED... NO SHE IS NOT CUTE- SHE IS A POORLY BEHAVED MISERABLE BlTCH"
there are times when i should not be allowed out in teh general public...
at dah i was quiet-- but i had trouble -- a man with a dalmation-male- had his leash from collar noosed around the dog's waist- tieing up his
male appendage - explaining to me that was the only way he could control his dog-- i didn't say a word...
THEN WE GET INTO "THEY ARE TIMID AND THAT LEADS TO FEAR BITING"
TIMID-- ALL DANES ARE-- AND FOR THOSE WHO THINK TEH PROGRESSION IS "TIMID-- FEAR-- BITING --AGGRESION", HAS NEVER HAD A PROPER DANE. IN REALITY IT GOES TIMID--- TERRIFIED....PLEASE FIND ME A PERSON TO BE WITH 24 HOURS A DAY -- TO EXPLAIN LIFE TO ME-- AND I WILL BE VERY RELAXED AND DEVOTED --- OTHERWISE I MIGHT HAVE TO CHEW A HOLE IN THE WALL TO BE IN THE ROOM WITH MY PERSON. BOOKS WILL CALL THAT SEPARATION ANXIETY- WHEN IN FACT I JUST HAVE NO INTENTION OF BEING SEPARATED IN THE FIRST PLACE.
i do know of a case where-- a pet dane was locked in someone's laundry room while mom took junior to the dentist-- when they came back the dog had eaten a hole in the wall and was on the living room couch looking out the window for her family-- they are devoted..
when wendy and hunter were lere last sunday, wendy was obvioulsy distraught by the fact that dad went up to the house for paperwork and hunter was down by the barn... she did not like to have the family split - and tried very hard to keep th=em together by herding them.
judy is here right on schedule....
