One Day ....

14 posts in this topic

Dear Don - he is SUCH a treat when there is nothing to chase :o he can only go off lead when I am absolutely sure there are no rabbits/roos/sheep within about 300 mtrs - otherwise he'll find 'em !!

My fault, I know - and hopefully one day my training motivation will return ... my dogs suffer because of it these days .

*looks at Don lying under the table , chewing on a beef spare rib ...*

Oh ..and, after a couple of years - Don has finally matured ! He is now built like a brick dunny .. solid and square, (with what The Boss describes as a 'wolf mouth' )..... and his bark has dropped an octave or two!! Just the last few days we noticed this deep WOOF and thought it was old Leo . Nope it's the new boofheaded Don . :) Gotta love testosterone sometimes ....

Aww, look at him turning into a grown up! That still seems so young to me now that my youngest one is four. The oldest will be seven this year :eek:

These being my first dogs and having gone from none to bringing home 4 baby puppies in 4 years (including the foster I had for 5 months) I find it really weird having these ADULTS now :laugh: I can't believe how fast the time's gone either.

ETA I do love watching them change as they get older though. I really noticed Quinn becoming a proper at adult once she turned 3, even down to her metabolism changing and her puppy fat (which hadn't realised was puppy fat) falling off her.

Oh and re training - I think one day I'd like to be bothered to train my dog/s not to got into the kitchen even if there's no physical barrier. People do it so I know it's possible, I'm just too lazy :o

Look how happy he is.

Don't worry Pers my lot don't have wonderful manners due to lack of traning.

Cedro's voice changed a few months ago, he was 2 last August, he now has a deep big dog bark.

OH has recently decided he wants the dogs to stay out of the kitchen, fair enough as Collie can be a bit of a hazard around hot items. Only problem is is he always waits until the dog has followed him into the kitchen before telling him to get out :doh:

Finally getting around to teaching Sarah not to jump up, I don't usually have a problem with it (coz it means I can pat her without bending down) but her claws can really dig in if I'm wearing shorts :p

Other than that ours don't have the best manners but they are 10 and 8 so old age pretty much means they don't get themselves into too much trouble

Pers

When he sings the song of his people he is a wonder to hear. I love his voice, BUT if he is singing like that it means he has escaped and on a scent! So I don't hear it anymore (said with crossed fingers).
