These are also usually the same people who call their dogs "stupid"

I just posted a video to a FB group on Rigby's distance progress. I said almost every command twice and didn't even notice until I watched it.
I was really upset with myself! Especially since she had already committed to the action I was asking of her with the first command, just doing it a lot slower than I was wanting.


My parents are totally guilty of that as well, I'm sure it will take some time to bring my 2 back up to a respectable level of listening.

I desperately want a puppy from a particular litter next year. But... that means I have a lot to think about regarding timing and finances. Ugh. Why do I have to be at this college/going into grad school age?

If I hear another person say "oh his tail is tucked he must be sad/upset/aggressive/timid/abused..." about Cobain I might snap.

He is a Border Collie, the breed standard calls for a dropped tail. It falls nicely in line with his hocks, it's not tucked, and that's just the way I like it. He's perfectly fine.

When his tail is up, THAT is when you should be worried.

A breeder of ACDs fairly close to us is going to breed his two of his females some time this month. If she is confirmed pregnant and everything goes as planned, then (if my math is right???) that would out the arrival of the puppies around July, and going home around September - October or so.

This guy is a cattle rancher, only has about 6 dogs and while he doesn't show, he does do the necessary Health testing for the breed ... And has beautiful dogs. I hope this works out! I really really do, it's been 5 years almost since I have had a little heeler-demon ram-Rodding around.

LOL Limit's tail is often down because he's nervous, and I still think people should shut their mouth. It's not like I'm not aware of his mental state.

LMBO I have been guilty of that too lol, I think we all do it at some point. I am ESP prone to doing it with the old dog who can't hear **** ... But ... In his defense ... He can't hear **** LOL.

I am talking about joe blow dog owner with the untrained dog repeating a comment a thousand times and then saying that the dog is dumb because it won't listen ... Lol.

She was and has been! I haven't tried walking her or working her out in this 100F (or nearly) heat though. But she demo'd interior searches just fine.

She's getting a little stir crazy but doing well inside and hanging around the yard. Poor thing needs a sibling that will PLAY with her longer than 5 minutes. She tries but Summer says she is too old.

Haha, does your dog respond to your attempts at doggy language?

I was just lying down on the couch relaxing, and Leo kept throwing/pushing his ball at me. I wasn't really terribly bothered by it and was in a quirky mood, so instead of telling him no, I pulled my lips back and showed him my teeth (without moving or making any other sounds). This resulted in instant calming signals, and immediately leaving me alone.

I am way too proud of my successful doggy language

Sure, I like when people throw trash in to my completely privacy fenced in yard... Because what dog DOESN'T like cooked chicken wing bones and a little container of coleslaw?????

Sometimes I hate my neighborhood. This just goes hand in hand with the dog who, rather than just fence barking, decided it would be best to scale the chainlink fence and rush my dogs yesterday. BLAHHHHHH.

Some potentially very exciting things afoot. Potentially. So many reasons why it might not work, but we're going to give it the good 'ol college try. And I'm insane.

No expectations, no high hopes. This will be my mantra.
