I know. How rude these dogs are!

Though apparently he's been counter surfing and whining whenever she goes out of sight. He doesn't do those things here. So I don't even know how I would work on them? That might mean he has nowhere to go when we're on vacation. The whining is a deal breaker because obviously she can't be in his sight all of the time, and it is triggering the other dogs to also whine. And he's not eating at all. I.... Don't even know where he is going to stay

But he was totally quiet in his crate overnight and leash walking like a pro so he's got that going for him? :/

Summer has the farts this morning. She is the most pathetic thing you have ever seen when she gets the farts. She gets very worried and then wants you to comfort her and she will pace and look generally sad. Its very sad.

I finally got around to bringing out the clicker with Arya and she is so cute. She offers really amazing eye contact in just our first session and she is so much fun. She picked up on it right away. After two clicks she was like OMG CLICK MEANS TREATS? I got this.

There is nothing worse than having a BULLY STICK EMERGENCY when the pet store with the best bully sticks is closed.

Marrow bones from the butcher, it is! I guess that's just as good. And cheaper. It results in a couple hours of quiet, at least! Gosh, before Cajun we raaaaaarely had chews for the dogs... and now, we usually have an assortment of bones, bully sticks, tracheas, and hooves floating about.

Buddy has decided that he is no longer my dog and that he likes my parents better (whether they know it , like it or not lol) . Oh well, at least I still have Josefina xD

People were looking at me funny while Mia and I were splashing through mud puddles at the park. Lol we had fun so they can shut it. What's the point in goin to a park right after a big rain if you don't splash in the mud?

ARGH! The old dog snuck off his bed last night and pooped on the carpet!!! Luckily it wasn't funny so I was able to easily pick it up and natures miracle took care of the rest.

Then the Shoer came today to shoe my morher's horse. She brings her dogs so I put mine in the house while I was outside helping her and I hear all this noise (our windows are open so I can hear stuff happening inside the house) so I go back inside to see buddy tryin to escape through the kennel door (I forgot to lock the bottom latch) and my parents other dog thinking about rummaging through the trash ... WTH dogs! I guess all of you will have to be on tie down ANY time I leave and go outside for any length of time

Vent...

Rotating cats and dog is annoying. Really annoying. And more so because Fiora has taken to stalking Finn whenever he's leashed around them, following him anywhere he goes, growling. If he gets too close for her liking she attacks, which makes him lunge because leash, negative feedback loop ugh.

Very careful, small LAT sessions from now on. And we're going to have to do something about that stalking behaviour.

Finn was fine with June Bug (some minor fixating and chasing but both parties were content with it), but his obsessive fixation on these two cats is nuts. Stan is content keeping his distance, but both cats really dislike him. Between unpacking, finishing up at the old house, trying to keep a routine work schedule at home and adjusting to our new home life, I'm finding the entire mess to be extremely challenging. We're only three days in so I'm trying to keep positive, but it's really hard.

I get scared of the possibility of having to rehome if it doesn't work out. And then anxiety.

My boyfriend's cat is similar. She has cornered my dogs before. Granted, we don't live there, but she goes in a safe place when my dogs are there and out. {{hugs}} Is there any way you can do separate areas of the house for now? Just... no contact for a couple weeks until everyone settles in?
