Growing up fast!!
The poor cat is regularly getting squashed in games of rough and tumble, alhough she gives as good as she gets!
Still a little hit and miss! I think we are a little more hit, although Ebony isn’t good at asking to go out, and completly forgets when she is playing with the cat.
Once walking, Ebony is great on the lead, stays at heel and doesn’t pull, and is great with all other dogs that she meets. Although I have to say it is a bit of a bug bear of mine when people who have their dog off the lead walk past trying to ignore the dog whilst their dog is coming over to talk to mine. If your dog is off the lead, it should be under control and staying away from dogs on the lead. As a vet I end up dealing with far too many dog bites that could have been avoided. A dog on a lead is under control, it will also tend to protect it’s owner, and will possibly be more aggresive, and that often means fighting with a dog that comes up to it off the lead.
If the dog is wearing a yellow bow on it’s lead or a muzzle these are even bigger indicators to keep your dog away. Not all dogs or their owners want to play!!
Rant over… Ebony’s problem though is going for a walk, she still won’t happily walk out of the end of the drive, and actively runs away when she see’s her lead! As a behaviourist this would suggest she associates walking with a bad experiance which she has never had, and once out of the driveway she appears happy. I am still suspicious she doesn’t like leaving the cat!! We are trying to sort the situation with lots of treats, and putting on the lead and not going for a walk and just getting a treat. We are also trying different leads and harness’s to see if she doesn’t like the feel. We will let you know how it is working!
4 month worming today. I had forgotten how much easier a single tablet is compared to 3 days of granules.
