sad_pandaLast  night we had an incident with Jasper.  She tried to make a break for it an run away.

Didn’t get far with only a 12 foot leash and her choker still on. But it still upset me that for over 2 weeks now she still has trust issues with us.  She was loved on and bathed,  got loads of treats and cuddles,  as well as plenty of time for naps whenever she wanted to sleep,  the AC is on and its less then 78° in here.  Just all of a sudden,  boomoff she was goin as fast as her legs could pump..  then as soon as it started she reached the 12 foot end of the leash and boing her dash for freedom was over.

Now maybe i’m wrong and maybe something spooked her.  I don’t know.

What i do know is that i had to reassert myself as alpha of my pack and discipline her mentally.

After submitting to my dominance, and pooping herself all over my sneaker.  We had an uneventful walk back home where she was praised repeatedly for being so good on the leash on the way home.

Through the night things went peaceful and we had no issues this morning on the leash.

We will see..

Till then..  I have more  ideas to work on.

Well, here we are at the end of August and some updates.  Jasper, Jasper_Toon_Small,  is getting much better at walking on the leash and has come to terms with walks.  The lease has been renewed and we are good here for another year.  Jasper has met the manager here and has made a good impression afaik.   She has been with us only 12 full days and she is becoming more accostomed to how things work here.  The wife says that after 2 weeks she has improved ~5% and is still a little scaredy cat wussie girl.  To that I say,  your right.. but its only 2 weeks.  Molly had 3 grown dogs and alot of people around when she first came to us and we cannot judge them  on the same merits as the situation is different.

As far as Molly

Molly wanting to blog more.   cares, Little Jasper is just little.   they both had breakfast and were working on getting there normal daytime pillows setup. ( Jasper is still skittish )

We are getting there.. and time will eventually give us a happy  gentle pooch that loves attention as much as Molly does.

still finding my style

Today Molly gives Jasper some well earned Advice on being a Dog.
