Buddy The Chewer!




Will has been leaving Buddy and Jade out while he walks Behr in the morning. If Buddy is crated and Will leaves with Behr he howls like no other wolf. Well this morning was the last time I get to sleep and hit snooze two times. From now on Buddy will be crated.

Will came back to find the furminator handle chewed off and the current book I'm reading, Love the One Your With gnawed on...here's the kicker it's not mine! It's Shana's...so Shana, I hope that copy wasn't special, I don't think it was autographed...but I'll replace the book!! Don't worry Baby Proof is upstairs by my bed, yet to be read. I was reading on the couch last night that's why the other one was downstairs. I'm so sorry!

That first picture reminds me of this:dog

Our new Family picture minus Sheena

I thought if they all got on the couch it would work...NOT, do you see that smirk on Will's face?




This was actually the first picture taken! It's great. Thanks Susan!!

Prong Collar


I know many people are against this tool. However, hear me out.

I've walked Behr two times now for over 40 minutes and we've had no problem. I don't even have to use it. He doesn't dart toward other dogs, squirrels, or people. It's great. I think it has lifted my confidence with walking him.

Tommy, our trainer said that soon we will just keep it on his neck, but the leash won't be connected. We are using it as a learning tool, not forever. Will is still pretty skeptical, but he doesn't walk Behr at 5pm like I do.

Here are some links Tommy gave us. Some info on prong collars:

Sheena and Catnip!

Even though I clip Sheena's nails often they need to be "filed." They have rough edges that pick the carpet and get stuck to her nails. So I bought her this cardboard thing. Well it had a catnip pack in it, so I HAD to use it!

I can see her saying, "I love this thing." As she lays on her side holding it with both arms and rubbing her face on it...doing anything but scratching!

Note to self: Don't talk next time...

Walky-Dog

Someone commented about the biking apparatus. Yes I did get it...I don't remember all the problems, but there were some with Springer USA, I think...can't remember.
In the end it cost me about $90 with the attachment, a harness, and a helmet for me!

I will post pictures soon. Me and Behr went on a ride earlier, and I just got back from taking Buddy. Jade can slip out of the harness so she can't go, but she hates running anyway! I'll do this more often because the weather was really nice this afternoon!

Our Sunday Adventure

This is the"Oh I'm excited, we're leaving them here, and I get to go by myself" look! Behr loves them, but he was meant to be an only dog. Don't believe me?? Just come over and try to love on someone else!

We are going to the German Shepherd Dog Club gathering this morning at Hampton Park. We are taking Behr only, I think.

***Fingers Crossed***
Behr Behaves Behr Behaves Behr Behaves Behr Behaves Behr Behaves Behr Behaves Behr Behaves Behr Behaves

UPDATE: Behr did very well. Once again we were the youngest there by a good 30 years. But that's okay. It wasn't a very big group, but we got on the email list so we will know when other stuff happens. We decided next time we will take Behr and Jade. Although I will be out of town for the next two weekends, then that following weekend Will is doing a competition out of town, so it may be a while before we make it back.

Sorry no pics, I packed the camera but forgot to take them!

Waiting For Will

I totally understand their pain....is Will ever coming home??

By 8:00pm they give up!
Then it's as if they sense him getting closer. This happens nightly!
