Sorry for blurry pic. Another food picture xD She’s been eating so well! Her coat is so soft right now and I think I have accepted the fact that she’s just going to be a petite little lady…her littermate brothers are like 90 pounds right now. I thought her chest would puff out more, granted she still isn’t 2 so she still has room to grow, but she’s so lithe and lean - her ribs aren’t sticking out  now so she’s not TOO thin at least…when she was sick she had an even thinner waist and you could see her ribs a bit… I am going to get around to getting her a backpack harness to put some water bottles in for a little bit of weight to build more muscle. 

also calling all dog friends, take a top view pic of your dog and tag me with the @ sign so I don’t miss it :) ^_^

all-kinds-of-dogs:

So as some of you know, I’ve been training Watson off the prong collar. We’ve been going to stores and stuff on his flat, but only for a few days. He’s doing really well on it, and I’m doing pretty much constant treating for walking next to me, but I don’t mind, and I know he doesn’t lol. Thing…

If you hate the prong don’t use it but I just wanted to point out a thing you said to ease your mind about someone saying he will shut down wearing a prong around 5000 people. The collar itself won’t make your dog shut down. If you yank the shit out of him and he doesn’t understand why THAT will make him shut down. If the prong works and you have a reason for wanting to use it, a pocketful of treats and you are good to go. As a trainer it is your job to communicate perfectly clearly why your dog gets treats AND why your dog gets corrections. Haven’t seen enough of your posts to know why you use one etc but I wouldn’t fear the collar in a situation like that. If your dog shuts down its because of the people or you communicating wrong, if he hasn’t shut down with the collar before. :) good luck

Got one of the highest compliments today:

my super cleanly Chinese mom in law walked into our house and told me it was very clean.

YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW BIG OF A DEAL THIS IS TO ME.

her definition of dirty is any dog hair on the floor at all, anything really out in the open where it shouldn’t be. AHHHH and I didn’t even clean today, I did a lot yesterday though :D! 

Lara’s detoxing a little bit, her paw is very red between the pads. The naughty girl chewed on it while I was sleeping and irritated it more. She then tactfully waited until I was in the shower to resume her chewing session, so on with the sock!! She looks so cute with a sock on though :D

Since I’m doing this on my phone, I’m not going to post the rules and all that jazz. I’m just going to answer the questions. (: I was tagged by guidedogintraining
1. It’s hard to remember why I came to tumblr it was so long ago. Uhm. I think I just originally googled free blog sites that I could blog on and tumblr was right there. So I used it.
2. I live in Georgia and I have always lived in Georgia. I currently live in Covington and I’ve only lived here about two months.
3. My favorite breed of dog is a tie between American Pit bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers. Forever. My second favorite is like a tie between five hundred other breeds, though.
4. Some of my basic hobbies include reading, drawing, gaming, and I guess dog training.
5. I went to college for a little while and was majoring in business. Due to things that happened, though, I basically dropped out. I hope to one day go back and continue my education I’m business management.
6. I haven’t been enough places yet to really have a favorite vacation spot. I’d probably have to say just cruises. I fucking love them.
7. Favorite thing about myself. Ugh. This is hard. Uhm. I guess it’s how much I have changed since graduating high school. I am nothing like the person I once was. And I kinda love it.
8. Random fact. Uhm. I’m sick and dying and I’m the biggest baby when sick. The biggest.
9. I work every single Saturday. So my Saturdays include me sleeping most of the day because I worked Friday night, getting up and taking care of the dogs, maybe watch an episode or two of a show, and then going straight back to work.
10. My dream job is owning/managing a pet store that focuses on providing the best nutrition for your pets. One where I can bring my pet to work.
11. I have been on a plane. I’ve flown to Iowa, Washington, the Bahamas, uhm… a few others that I can’t think of. Heh.
Now for my questions.  1. What is your favorite tv show?  2. Where would be the ideal place for you to live? 3. What is your favorite breed of dog? (Stealing this question) 4. What is your favorite holiday? 5. What is the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do? 6. Are you more so fascinated by the ocean or outerspace?  7. Are you a religious person? What is your religion? 8. Are you a morning person or do you like to sleep in for ages? 9. What is your favorite thing to eat? 10. What kind of music do you listen to and who is your favorite artist? 11. If you could make one difference in the world, what would it be?
I don’t actually know how many people I’m supposed to tag, but I’ll do eleven since there are eleven questions. If you don’t want to do it, you don’t have to. (:

I couldn’t stop tagging people.

OOoh thank you!!! Here we go!! (ps wasnt sure if I was supposed to reblog this or post it lol)

1. What is your favorite tv show? I can’t pick just one, but probably Grey’s Anatomy. My favorite anime is Steins Gate - I have to separate these xD
2. Where would be the ideal place for you to live?Pretty ideal where I am now - somewhere really hot that’s not that humid. 
3. What is your favorite breed of dog? (Stealing this question)German shepherds - but not pet or American lines, sorry, they are basically different breeds. A nice German showline, Czech, DDR, or WGWL I appreciate though.4. What is your favorite holiday?Halloween is my favorite concept of a holiday. My favorite holiday to celebrate is 4th of July because my family always does fun things.5. What is the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do?Build a relationship. It’s also the best thing I’ve done.6. Are you more so fascinated by the ocean or outerspace? The ocean. Outerspace, I don’t think about it much because it really irritates me that something can be ‘never-ending’.7. Are you a religious person? What is your religion?I am not.8. Are you a morning person or do you like to sleep in for ages?I like waking up early but realistically my sleep schedule is always so messed up I end up sleeping for ages. I like being up late at night much more than being up early in the morning.9. What is your favorite thing to eat?Raspberries with cool whip10. What kind of music do you listen to and who is your favorite artist?Mainly trance, dance music, and Chinese pop. Jay Chou.11. If you could make one difference in the world, what would it be?I wish so many homeless pets weren’t euthanized and that people took better care of their pets.
I have to think of questions and who to tag now xD

So Lara may be over a year and a half old but last night she slept out of her crate for the first time on the floor and she was a perfect angel :D

She’s been crated so long because I really see no reason to not crate her because she likes it in there anyway. Well maybe I’ll try this again a bit more often, she could sprawl and flop all over the floor.
