    He's a jerkboy

    So we're walking along this morning, and Jar did his grab and snatch thing - he picked up *something* off the sidewalk and hid it in his big old floppy mouth.

    I think he's learned that if it's sticking out, I can grab it, so whatever-it-was was COMPLETELY hidden in his mouth.

    So anyway we're walking along, and we stopped at a corner to sit, and there, across the street, was this cat.

    Not just any cat - a GIANT snow white fluffy cat.

    And it was staring at him, lurking around, practically glowing at the dark, and Jar. . . well, he had this THING in his mouth that he didn't want to drop (and lose), so he had to just sit there and take it. And that cat stared at him, and he glared back, clamping down on the whatever-it-was. . . I'm pretty sure daggers were shooting out of his eyes.

    He did figure it out, though - when we got close to home, our neighbor's dog, Thunder was out, and he did greet him, mouth firmly closed, and then THEN he saw ANOTHER CAT.

    That was just too much for him. He got all jerky - he didn't actually DROP whatever-it-was, but it kind of crumbled and bits of it fell out of his mouth.

    WHile I was hustling him away from it, Thunder came along and sort of snatched the bits of whatever-it-was for himself. I don't even want to think about what it may have been.

    But that's what you get when you try to chase cats.

    So yup, Jar's got another song -

    He's a jerkboy. . .J E R K B O Y

    (Dennis Leary's A$$hole song. . . )

    LMBO about the song. I'd stick with the original lyrics icon_wink.gif

    Back to the 'out' practice but be careful. Madison walked past a huge pile of very loose dog poop Monday. She never bothers with that *stuff* but this time scooped a mouthful (OK, this is disgusting but we are all pet lovers). I was too late for 'leave it' and yelled 'OUT'. She did. All over my boot.

    Yikes - ew! There must have been something really . . . interesting in there, huh? Jar usually isn't interested in that sort of thing either - he'll sniff it, almost like "who left THAT lying there?" then he loses interest.

    Yeah, still got to work more on the drop it - he's a stubborn beast, though. And to be honest, I just didn't have the energy to engage in a battle of wills with him yesterday morning. icon_redface.gif

    Drop it, or leave it as I use isn't very effective whenever whatever they have is way more interesting than any old treat Mom has. We had liver at a restaurant the other day and decided we don't care much for liver, so brought 90% of it home. I cut into small pieces and froze. Bet they love those treats.

    Yeah, Jar's a big fan of liver too. yuck.gif

    We had some steak I found in the freezer that, when we cooked it, tasted a little "off" - not bad, exactly, just not great. I'm saving that for class Saturday. . . icon_wink.gif

    We do okay with "leave it" - if he hasn't picked up whatever "it" is yet. I'm still struggling with "DROP it" - once it's in his cavernous mouth, he seems to think he's entitled to it.

    It's hard to blame them. Heaven only knows what is so appealing but it must be special. icon_lol.gif

    I know, right? I don't even WANT to know, most of the time!

    This morning, we walked past a parking lot that still had a HUGE mound of snow - the icky, parking lot snow that's packed into a mountain at one end of the lot.

    Jar's been a little iffy about climbing up on things, so we've been working on it - and we went up a couple of steps, then came back down, and it was all good. THEN he climbed UP to the very TOP of this snow mound all by himself!

    King of the Mountain!!! icon_lol.gif

    And he got up there and snatched *something* from the very tippy top of the mountain and *CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH* 'ed it up before he'd come down. icon_rolleyes.gif

    We got back home and worked on "DROP IT" some more. It's a lot easier when it's a wubba, I've got to admit. icon_redface.gif

    That's the way to get him to climb all the way to the top - put something crunchy at the top. Of course it may not have been something you want him to eat.
