Based on the comments we had from our last post we wanted to point out a few things.
1. We do now walk on a leash. We do great on leashes and are even able to happily walk next to strollers and other dogs... bikes, not so much.
2. We do not know basic commands, but do know based on voice tone when our parents mean business and we freeze and wait to see what we should do next.
3. We are stubborn. Mom has tried to teach us things like sit and drop it, but we do not listen to those. We will drop something if mom or Dad reach for it, though. They tend to communicate with us by actions more than by words... which is fine since we don't speak english and they don't speak bark. :)
4. Our parents understand that some people feel strongly about training and that is wonderful for some dogs... but, just like people, not all dogs are willing to do what they are asked to do. Our Mom feels very strongly about our safety, health, and well-being. We don't go on walks a lot because our neighborhood is not safe for us, but we get plenty of exercise in our yard and have constant attention from our parents.
Anyhow, I guess we should have said that even though we droped out of obedience school we are not crazy dogs. :) We mostly think our drop out story is funny. We hope no one got the wrong idea of us or our parents. :) We know everyone who reads this only does the best for their fur babies and our parents are included in that number. :)
