Before BB (BBB)We have been working on walking without dragging our humans around. I thought that's why they were holding on to the leash. Now I stay on the side or a little behind my humans. Mostly.
Otherwise they give me a little pull on the torture harness. I think it is outlawed by the Geneva Convention. I guess Bush doesn’t care. That’s why we need a doggie president—but let’s get back on the topic...
Arrow pulls sometimes and he gets a little pull too. He is better but not as good as me.
One big problem we had was barking (Arrow) and growling (me) at passing dogs. Sometimes my owner mom yanks us in another direction, or she tries to make us walk close to her. But we bark and growl anyway, even if she is giving little pulls and growling BAAAA and throwing her little Bark Buster bean bags.
This got so embarrassing (for her, not me) that she tried something else that is not from Bark Busters. To get the filthy boy Arrow to poop outside all the time, my mom starting rewarding him with pieces of chicken or hamburger. (To be fair I get it too!) Now when she thinks we are going to growl and bark at a dog, she throws food at us. Leftover meatloaf or growling at some strange doggie? Hmmm. Let me think. Which would I prefer? Sometimes she just takes out the special baggie and we stop. Now don’t tell Bark Busters about this because they might not like it. It's quiet. Non-violent. And yummy.
