    Dogs EVERYWHERE this morning

    I have a doctor's appointment this morning, which means, among other things, that I have an extra couple of hours to fiddle around. So, rather than do something crazy like roll over and sleep in (as if!) the Jar got an extra long walk this morning - it's starting to get warmer in the afternoons, so those walks are cut short,and I just don't usually have the time in the mornings for more than an hour or so. . .

    Anyway, we're out walking, and we were on the homeward stretch, when there was this GUY walking a young-ish husky-ish looking thing. He was coming from the direction we were headed, so naturally, we crossed the street and went the other way.

    Who knew the guy would have turned around and met us a few blocks away, coming from a different side street?

    So. . . we crossed the street (well, I crossed the street, Jar got DRAGGED across the street) (icon_rolleyes.gif) and we were on our way again.

    Only there were those two obnoxious little Maltese things in the font yard on the corner. Yap-yap-yap-yap-yap-yap-yap

    Fortunately, Jar's used to them (and others just like them with the yap-yap-yap) so he didn't even really look at them. And eventually (and I do mean EVENTUALLY) their person came out to see what the ruckus was. Yeah, lady, your obnoxious little beasts are waking up the neighborhood, barking their fool heads off at a dog that POOPS bigger than either of them. And he is SO not impressed. . .

    So we walked down another street, AWAY from the barky-faces, and there, on the next corner, was some random loose dog - it looked like a lab, and it looked like he may have been looking for someone to play with. He was sort of ambling around the yard and street (he might live in that house) and he saw us. You know that moment when the dog notices you and he just zeroes in? Kind of like a double-take? Yeah, like that. We, of course, turned right around and walked away, and he kind of paced us from a block away until his view was blocked. And of course, Jar was doing the same thing - practically turning himself into a pretzel trying to look backward at that other dog.

    I'd thought about a quick beach trip before breakfast, but honestly, I was exhausted by the time we got home!

    It is so draining. I feel like that with Madison. As much as I love the little sod, walks with Dawson, while more 'athletic' are less stressful as he is not a scraper.

    Jar is doing well. icon_cool.gif

    I know. It is irritating.

    I innocently walk with my beasts minding our own business. They don't bark back at yappy dogs when we pass their yards. My dogs really don't care one iota. It annoys the shit out of me when the dog owners look at us like we are trespassing on a public street. Here's a thought... control your monsters.

    I have spent a decade teaching my dogs how to behave. SO bite me and pick a finger.

    Jar has gotten SO much better about other dogs in houses or yards - for the most part, they bark (or not) and he just looks at me. There's one dog - a little husky-type thing - that just sits quietly and watches us walk by. Every once in a while, she sort of whines like she REALLY REALLY wants to get out of the yard, but that's it. Jar's taken to looking for her, and when he sees her, he sort of bounces around - almost playfully, if you can believe it!

    But it's the other dogs walking that still freak him out. Of course, it doesn't help when OTHER people don't use basic courtesy - just let their beasts wander around on those fracking mile-long flexi-leads . . . try to walk up to you when the dog is CLEARLY not comfortable. . . and that dam' bulldog - I swear every time they open their door, that thing comes barreling out, just spoiling for a fight. icon_sad.gif

    As an aside - after the SECOND time the bulldog did that (and the owner actually walked over later and apologized to my husband), I told my husband that if it ever happened when I was walking him . . . well, it just wouldn't happen again. Ever. We've put far too much work (and money) into trying to get Jar past these issues to have some ill-tempered genetic freak and its ignorant owners keep setting him back. icon_evil.gif (As I recall, my exact words were "I'll cap the little b***." I'm not proud of that, but there you go. icon_wink.gif )

    This morning's walk was much calmer, though. icon_smile.gif
