What a busy holiday season thus far! Where to begin.....
First, I had to say goodbye to 2 awesome dogs (and awesome neighbors). They are having a baby and moving to the burbs (I lose so many clients this way! :( ) Their move kept getting pushed back, so I just kept saying goodbye to the dogs every week. Sigh... they surely entertained me during the time that I had them twice a week. Most recently the beagle had to have surgery on her leg and was in a crate during the day to restrict her activity. 90% of the time she was very good about it, but certain days she was very stubborn.
Wasn't it bad enough that her butt was shaved and she had to wear an e-collar?! Then I had to get her in the crate?! Such meanies we are :) She would jump on the couch and look at me with defiance in her eyes. I would tell her to go in the crate and she wouldn't budge. I would nudge her and she would glare. One day I sat down next to her on the couch and took my phone out. I said to her, "Fine, I'm just going to call your mother and tell her that you won't go in your crate." As soon as I started to dial, she jumped off the couch and flew into her crate. Too smart for her own good! :)
