Dog Naps with a side of Snuggle-fries.

Every day at around 11:30am the dog tries to take a nap while I try to make art and videos.

I used to think that before his nap,  he was trying to let me know he had to go outside to pee in the yard. Now I know that’s not the case.

He would stare, or try to grab my hand and take me to what I though was the door. Sometimes he does a little silent bark, like a little finigin sock puppet. Regardless, he was just never really satisfied with whatever I thought he was thinking.

I eventually figured out that no matter how old he gets, he still just wants to use me as a pillow like he did when he was a tiny puppy.

He’ll jump up on the couch. Try to find a comfy place for a minute. Then jump down and come stare at me and occasionally look at the couch. As if to say, “The couch is broken, please fix it.” So I do. It’s the easiest thing to fix in the world. So easy that I can fix it with my butt.

He jumps up on the couch that I fixed by sitting on it and in less than 2 minutes, starts snoring with his eyes open until he is completely asleep. I wish I could could say it’s a huge inconvenience. But it’s the best way to think about what I’m going to have for lunch.

It is also the best way to accidentally fall asleep in the middle of the day. Which can be a huge inconvenience. Some people might also think that stopping to smell the roses is an inconvenient waste of time. I find that inconvenient times are the times when stories start, or you have time to think about the stories that are already happening.

Either way, this particular rose smells like popcorn farts today.

This week’s Video that we made between naps is, A Labyrinth for Christmas. Which you can Watch now.

Hey Christmas Tree… a Poem.

trees

Hey Christmas Tree
Oh Christmas Tree
You seem real nice
Come inside with me
I’ll keep you away
From stray dog pee

Oh Christmas Tree
Hey Christmas Tree
We just met
But follow me

I’ll keep you warm
Here by the fire
You can help me watch
That show, the Wire
And every movie
About the Baggins’ Shire

Hey Christmas Tree
Hi Christmas Tree
It’s pretty cold
Now come with me
I’ll pay 40 bucks
Plus a tie down fee

I’ll keep you here
When your needles fall
I won’t cut you down
If you’re too tall
I’ll vote for you
When you’re on idol

Hey Christmas Tree
Hi Christmas Tree
Get in the trunk
You’re coming with me

We’ll be best friends
Just wait and see
Just don’t ask about
After Jan. three
You don’t want to know
Where you will be
So let’s watch Die-Hard
One, two and three

Hey Christmas Tree
Oh Christmas Tree
You’re green and sappy
Now you live with with me

This Week! We talk about the Secret history of Christmas Trees with a Cat in a Tree!

No Such Thing as Blog Rants: Positivity and Human Training by Tara Audibert

LOGO icons0008

I would like to prance around with a prong collar user at the end of a leash with a prong collar(Choke-chain with spikes).  I would pull on the collar at the slightest resistance and if I did it by accident I would go WHOOOPS! really loud. Then I would laugh and laugh and laugh. Ahhhhhhh. Good times.  Now,  point of my Shadenfruede:

As a dog owner you need to learn how to be a good teacher.

Dog ownership is a huge responsibility and it requires that YOU as the dog owner be trained on how to be a good teacher. Your dog is a direct reflection of how good of a teacher you are. Your dog is a reflection of YOU. If you are upset at how your dog has/is acting, you are upset with yourself, as a poor instructor. This is as true of teaching anyone anything! I have been an instructor for 7 years and can say that there was NEVER a single student in any of the classes I taught who attended class & handed in assignments & failed.  If any student was failing it was my job as the teacher to teach them. If one way doesn’t work you try another. It’s that easy.

You know how you are good at some things and not good at others.  Remember how you like to learn in a certain way, like maybe you like watching videos, or you enjoy learning through reading, or learning through doing. Well guess what, your pooch is exactly the same.  (So are your kids, but that is a rant for another day.)  So if everyone and every dog learns different things, in different ways then maybe there is no need for violent training. This includes pulling, choking, poking, pinching, anything that if I did it to a kid, you would be pissed.

There is a better way for you. Do not become a violent person. Where will it stop. It starts with prong collars and ends in the apocalypse people!!! Be GOOD. Be KIND. Be PATIENT.  The stuff kids learn in kindergarden. Wouldn’t it be so much better walking with a dog who wants to be by your side. Hey I know slavery makes easy profits, and water-boarding makes people talk. Results are results, there’s no denying that.  BUT I got my dog to be my companion, not my forced prisoner. I did not sign for unpaid guard duty.

Being a trainer will require you learn 2 important things. Patience & Consistency. If you don’t have these characteristics already, it will take practice for YOU to learn.  Dogs respond automatically to this way of teaching.

OK just think about this for a minute logically. When has more of something ever negated it. Pulling + Pulling =stop pulling? no I don’t think so. Pulling + Choking= calmness, yeah I don’t think so either. But HOW CAN I MAKE HIM STOP IT??? It’s just going for a walk!!! C’mon! Well to start, going for a walk is a HUGE thing, ask any dog that one word ‘Walk?’ and you’ll see it’s very important, and should be fun! I’m not a professional dog trainer, I am only a trainer in training myself, but I have shopped around, everywhere and quit violent courses that I really did not see results from anyway.  Yes, over time you can beat anyone into anything, but with positive reinforcement, I saw immediate results AND it was FUN for BOTH of us! YAY! Check this guy out, he is really good, but there are many others too 😉 Never resort to violence. Also ‘positive’ reinforcement does not mean making your dog obese with over indulged treats. (treats all the time doesn’t work either!!!!)
