    Well, he can reach the counters from a sitting position. Also he doesn't know to keep his paws down. Also he doesn't understand "no."
    :lau :lau :lau

    I walked him around the chickens and it was like a toddler in a toy store. No no no no Leave it. No. No. NO!! No. No. No. Leave it. No. No. No no. Nonononono no no NO.

    So, we have LOTS of work to do. I feel like I'm in the Princess Diaries and I have to make a pretty dog have good royal manners.

    He also jumps. DH has given him six months to break that or he can't stay with us. We had almost 500 kids this summer; a jumping dog is a big no no. Especially a giant jumping dog.

    That s why I only do LF and hoping still for a good hatch. Only 33 percent now. I usually have above 75 petcent. Remember I put some eggs in late.

    When he jumps on you, step on his back feet. He can't see you and thinks his feet hurt when he jumps on you.

    Or knee him in the chest a good one when he does it.

    Was he a kennel dog?

    Apparently he "grew up" as a retriever at one of those fancy schmancy hunting things where they pay a lot of money and the ducks are released as you get there? The guy today has had him in big outdoor pens. So he's just a little big and awkward.

    I let him off leash while I moved the kennel back inside and he did ok, responded much better to "no!" Then he marked my vacuum cleaner. :/ But I've given him a bath and he's just gorgeous! Once he gets his weight back he's going to be a knock out.

    He was also inhaling water. ;)

    The guy never said heart worms, but he said the dog had gotten sick from being penned in mosquitoes, and the bottle of pills is doxycycline which is a heart worm med, I think? The shelters with hw positive dogs always say "easily treated with doxie!" So I guess it's the same.

    Thanks all of y'all. I really don't mean to drag myself or anyone down. Guess I'm just in a lot of physical and mental pain right now. Tody is just one of those days. I told my grandmother two days before she died that I could tell that she wasn't feeling good. She had gone through the same surgery years before I had mine for this sever spinal stenosis. She looked at me and said, do I look like I feel bad. We were the only ones in the room at the time. She then told me that she tries not to show it and she thought that she hid it well. She did hid it well. She knew that the only reason that I knew was because I was in the same boat as far as the back problems go. My aunt talked to me about this later and said that my grandmother and her talked about my disabilities. She was laying dying and worrying about my handicaps. (I'm an emotional wreck right now. Sorry ) Right now I hurt from missing her and and physical pain. What is wrong with me. I was brought up on my dad's side (his mother) where men don't cry or show their emotions. I just don't know what's going on.
    Anyway camping I would do the crochet thing but twist would pick on me lol. Thanks for all of y'all listening to my emotional crazy self. I'll be better. I just get tired of hurting I guess. And I hate depending on others to do things for me . Cp is bothering me today on top of everything else.

    I really doubt that twist would tease anyone for a hobby that makes them happy. Also, what twist doesn't know won't hurt him. ;)
