Oh yeah, I definitely don't take her for granted. She's so completely easy and fun. I'd love to find another dog that was so bombproof one day.

We get to go to tricks class tonight. It's always fun to work with her.

It is probably telling that most stores and things we go to or go into people yell "Summer! Hi Summer!'

Monday at the vet she jumped from the floor to the table (long jump for short dog!) to cram herself into the vet's arms.
Sounds like Buddy, who is like "OMG human your my best friend ever!!!" He doesn't judge lol.

I CANNOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME TRAIN COHEN TO SHAMEFACE.

I'm going to try a light bungie around her nose (like what comes attached to some clickers). But so far targeting, shaping, luring and capturing have yet to work. My dog has a better vocabulary than I do, but somehow this one is eluding her.

Finally found a source for raw for Gage that doesn't involve me thawing and portioning up 30lb boxes of chicken backs and necks (which I will still do but I don't want it to be his main source is all), and Bristol refuses to eat any of it, last time it was Diesel, this time he will eat the chicken so far so YAY. But Bristol would eat most anything last time damned dog. So any ideas to help encourage her would be great.

Newest foster. Coming home after a vet appointment for what appears to be injuries sustained by being hit by a car.

He's listed as a Chi mix - about 7yrs old. I haven't seen him in person yet, just heard about him and lots of pictures. The earset kind of looks corgi to me if he's a little larger, but who knows! We'll have to see how he acts once he's feeling better. He's pretty miserable right now.

Agreed. While I do not feed raw, I do switch their kibble to a different protein source to prevent allergies and every once and a while one of them will go on a hunger strike, the most I have had a dog to is 5 days before they caved after they realized that I am more stubborn then they are and I control the food so ... Lol.

My dad doesn't agree with that. He says that "forcing " them to skip meals and giving them 20 min to eat lol. It's not cruel, I am not withholding food from them, they are choosing not to eat it xD
