Today, Ginger enjoyed a good sun bath when I came home at lunch. She is feeling better and smiling again.
I am grateful for this. Ginger’s one of the sugar kind of Dobies who’s so sweet she appreciates everything and thensome.
Tonight I had the clicker out for teaching downs. Raven’s getting along very well with “down,” and she is trying hard to understand “stay,” but that lack of doing anything but being still is a hard concept for Raven to grasp. But she’s trying.
Of course, only Raven could jam her tooth in between my thumb and its nail hard enough to cause me pain that hasn’t stopped since. I was giving her a treat! I don’t think I mention enough what a babe she is. She has brains, she just shifts from 1st to 4th without consideration to 2nd and 3rd.
Taylor is very smart, too. So much so that when I wasn’t clicking, she grabbed the clicker, which was attached to a sliding elastic dealio on my waste band, and pulled on it for me to get busy clicking!
I’m beginning to wonder if I should kiss the frog on my window. He’s faithful, I’ll give him that. He hasn’t left my window sill since we met and he has a steady job. Every night he’s on the window bringing home the “bacon.”
Just as important, he knows about my dogs and isn’t jealous of them. I’ll think about it.
