I have been officially inducted into the "Crazy dog people who buy too much stuff" club. It is also known as the "I WANT THAT" club. Between dog harnesses, dog toys, dog coats and dog beds I think I have broke the bank this month.
First I need to share a new dog "store" with everyone. A great new place for dog toys and, even better, labels for our special dog harnesses! All you who bought my favorite dog harnesses last year can now get personalized labels! Check out a new UK based internet dog shop:
They not only have handmade dog toys and great tunnel holders but you can personalize your harness like Niamh shows here.
Please let them know if you were referred by me. Maybe I can eventually get free stuff and will be able to eat next week.
As for my little darlings; I haven't decided what lables they need on their harnesses yet. Well actually I am not sure Itzy can wear a harness ever! I have now bought or borrowed hundreds (well maybe exaggerated) of harnesses for her and she refuses to wear any of them. These beautiful harnesess become Itzy Immobilizing Devices. She just cannot walk with them on. This morning I thought she might be big enough so that I could try my special pink harness on her and you can see the result....There is a reason I was able to take so many photos of her; she couldn't move with it on!
Here is Itzy in a perfect stay (induced by the immobilizing harness which is now my new invention that will make me millions. Just watch for the training DVD due out soon). Notice the new pink tuggy toy from Dog Stoppers!
Here is a small sample of Itzy's harness collection. All harnesses induced perfect stays or crazy Monty Python type walking.
Now for my little angel Zaz. Getting her to stay was much harder as she is immune to the immobilizing gene.
We tried the pig ear stay method.
Then we tried the push and take photo method. Why does Zaz always look like she has a large head?
Then I remembered I actually have been reinforcing her sitting on the balance disc. First she thought she should do "the elephant trick" on it.
Then she sat on it which caused the "big head" photo again.
Yes! The perfect cute head tilt photo.
She could lay here for ages.
I think she is tired of laying still and offers me a cute head down.
We have been busy heading into town everyday and the pups had their first puppy obedience class last night. More about that later and hopefully some video of Zaz's tricks.
