Mom and Dad got a much needed break from me today.
The lovely Katie from Gotpetfood offered to take me on a hike in Solstice Canyon with her dog Milo.
We had SO much fun walking the trails together and Katie is so cute and sweet.
I pulled a lot as I always do but it was great to be out in nature and I was very tired. Katie suggested Mom and Dad get the Caesar Milan Illusion Collar to help me not pull any more.
I took a little break as we were walking. I guess I may be a bit out of shape since I’m not used to doing trails yet….
After puppy kindergarten yesterday Dad had to go to work and Mom decided she was going to try to tire me out and solve a few of my “behavior” issues. I love being in the car but I only want to be on Mom and Dad’s lap and for some reason this is not okay with them. Something about having an accident?
So Mom went to her favorite Pet Store GotPetFood to buy me some new food AND figure out a way to control me in the car. On the way over she made me sit in my seat – bribing me the whole way with treats and the clicker which tells me I’m being good. She gave one of my new treats the Happy Heart chicken Breast but I showed her – I finished it by the end of the driveway.
At the pet store the nice man Jesus helped Mom try to find another controller thingy for the car. Since I am growing so fast they decided on the one for large dogs called the AutoZipLine – it has a few controller things to make me behave since Mom and Dad drive different cars. Mom put the harness vest on me for her car and it MADE me sit there – I finally gave up and layed down so Mom decided to take me to the Doggy open house at the ISaidSit place. The nice man Jonathan helped Mom with a few leash ideas for me.
I had been there before and I LOVE it there since all the humans there fawn over me. Mom and Dad mentioned I am the most popular one – something neither one of them ever experienced. They had all kinds of fun treats and things for me to play with. I got some “doggie swag” Paul Newman’s Dog treats which I also LOVE – I can’t seem to get enough treats so it just for that it was worth coming. I also got a few other new treats and foods but Mom said I could try those later since I’d had enough for today. I came home and crashed but not before Mom had to take a picture of me in my new harness- it’s hard being me but I do have a good life here and hopefully I can ride this wave of good blessings….
