I had to leave mine lock in for most of he day Yesterday too because I had to help OH put shavings in stalls for his bosses horses who are coming in today (20 horses in all) and my parents had to go somewhere too yesterday (the dogs don't stay out when no one is home) so needless to say they were pretty desperate to get out this morning

I just had the most overwhelming walk with Astro.

It's like all of a sudden, he's decided he's crazy and mannerless. I know he's going through a teenage phase, but **** this came on QUICK. He's now 35 pounds of solid dog, and he decided the best thing to do would be to hurtle to the end of the leash, run back, bounce off me, and repeat. Oh, and he grabbed giant sticks along the way, the better to beat me up with.

When I finally got him calmed down from his zoomies, he decided to start trying to yank up somebody's freshly churned lawn earth. He got tangled up in his leash, I went to untangle him, and he growled at me over the dirt! Just in the past 2 days, he's gone from "you can safely take anything out of my mouth" to "I'm going to resource guard a patch of soil." I had some of his kibble in my pocket, and I got him to successfully leave it and de-escalate, but that was just about the only success.

Oh, and did I mention his prey drive kicked in? I'm starting to dread taking him out on walks with so many issues presenting at once. NYC is not a forgiving place. There's litter, squirrels, rushing cars, pushy people. I focus on working through one or two things with him, and then OH WAIT, there's a loose cat whizzing by, a piece of chocolate cake just lying on the ground (seriously? litterbugs really get to me), another dog with an owner that can barely control it...

I have to pack for tomorrow ..but I'm lazy& really, really don't want to. Ugh. Plus, my dog is fast asleep& snuggly but I'm avoiding her because it will just make me even LESS productive.

Today I am straight racing with Joey for the first time. I'm hoping it will help build his confidence and follow on the lure more so decided to give it a shot. Found out there are going to be other Ibizans including the Ibizan that used to be my old neighbor's dog. He is now owned by a lady in PA and courses and is also a therapy dog. I haven't seen him in what feels like forever so I'm beyond stoked to see him again.

I might just be on cloud 9 today. Redhotdobe is going to come to hang out as well so yay!!!!

I saw a (real) SD today at the flea market, it was cool. The dog was so well trained, wore a special vest that said "please don't pet me I'm working" and what's better is NO ONE was bothering him
