Cold weather makes me stiff while in warm weather I release tension. It might be because I was born in December...
So... One more dog is added to the family. She's a bit spoilt and she has to go through training to adopt to the rules of this house. Her name is Lucy and she's going to stay for a month. Our income is increasing and I'm doing something I really like besides travelling. Taking care of pets!
So, let me talk to you about Lucy. She is a rescue dog and she has a "special need". Due to a car accident, her colon does not function properly and she needs to have special cooked food in order to poo properly. Otherwise, she is an extremely intelligent (6 kilos) creature! She is adorable. But very very spoilt. Because of her "problem" no one has ever told her "no". She pulls on her leash, barks a lot and wants your full attention all the time...
Yesterday it was her first day and she drove us crazy! After a lot of patience and loving energy today she is calmer and does not bark as much. She is calmly sitting in her bed like Nelos and Freeda.
There is peace and quiet in the house. For a year and a half no one told her "no", so she never had boudaries. But she is so clever that she learned her boundaries in less than 24 hours.

Most small dogs get away with bad behaviour because they are so small and cute. But they are still dogs and they need to be guided! And why should we care? Because it makes our life easier. Because it makes your dogs life easier. The dog sits and is rewarded by a walk in the park, a tasty treat, by whatever!
I wish everyone trained their dogs no matter how small... And we will train Lucy.
