I read that as "coolers in the fridge so I am ready to drink when I open them".  But then, you know me. 🍷

I'm not 100% sure, but Arya may have decided she doesn't like her dog food anymore.  Not the first time she suddenly decided she wanted something different.  Mixing it up with another variety she is eating, which, oddly, is what she used to get that she just suddenly rejected a few years ago.  Here she is preventing my nephew from moving by napping on his foot.

And here she is sunbathing in 90+ degree heat because of course she is.

So much food!  Burgers, foot long hot dogs, assorted fresh fruit, potato salad, macaroni salad, applesauce bread, brownies, assorted snack size bags of chips, deviled eggs, baked beans, a cooler full of soft drinks and bottled water, bite size  cupcakes and assorted cookies. Plus the usual BBQ condiments, sliced onions and tomatoes.


Nice spread! (He says as his dinner spins around in the microwave.)

Pepper was Josie's best friend until she started the Pussycats. Then, out of the blue, she vanished from all continuity until just recently. She was awesome.

No chance.

ruetheday69: Joxertheflighty: ruetheday69: [Fark user image image 850x1133]Been fostering this guy (brown dog) for about a month now. Longer than I normally foster, but with shelter being stuffed full right now and dogs being held in pop up cages, I feel bad taking him back. He needs some work before he finds a forever home anyway.

He is about 18 months old. He isn't very well leash trained. He loves my dogs and loves to play but bites uncomfortably hard and can get a bit out of control during play. He does not attack or otherwise harass dogs, just during play time. Nips when getting hand fed. Chases the cats a little but is backing down when they make it clear they don't like that. He is also uncomfortably skinny and wants to eat constantly. Trying to at least ameliorate some of these issues before handing him back for the "Clear The Shelter" event we have having in October.

Any tips for any issues I'm having would be appreciated!

A few things, and apologies if you already know/do/tried these things:
For the treat thing, Juneau had issues (and still has issues) with hand feeding.  My sister was taught by a trainer to hold the treat in a closed fist until the dog sort of starts ignoring it. When she starts ignoring it, then give the treat.  It takes patience - Juneau would take many minutes at first to stop trying to pry my sister's fist open.  Then, after the dog gets used to the fist, when you offer the treat, if he lunges for it or nips for it, take it away and offer it again once he has settled.  Otherwise, it is helpful to offer a treat on an open palm so he can just take it instead of grabbing parts of the hand too.  It's an ongoing and long-term training process.
If the play with the other dogs gets a little too rowdy, break it up immediately.  I find with my dog, who has anxiety issues around other dogs, standing with her hips between my legs and scratching her throat and face and shoulders helps keep her contained but also distracted enough to calm down.  Also, I find that getting her to do the one trick she knows (shake a paw) helps her to focus and forget about being rowdy. Sometimes it takes finding the right thing that will break up rowdiness, and for me, a spray water bottle helps - it doesn't scare or hurt them, but they sure hate being sprayed.
Lastly, it can help with training if the dog is a little physically spent.  So playing with a ball or another toy for 15 minutes before going for a walk or treat training can help him focus more easily.

I hope you are able to help him learn appropriate behaviours so he can find his forever home.

Great advice especially the closed fist treat tip. I will try tiring him out before walks and see if that helps. Been breaking fights up and putting a bite guard on him and he will start playing again but get sulky because he cant bite lol.


Poor guy.  My Rowena has been a lot of work to get her to understand good vs. bad behaviours.  And it's ongoing. I've had her since she was 7 weeks, and she's 5 years d now, and there are still things we are working on.  But setting up good and healthy boundaries, rules, and routines for the dogs and standing by them is the best path to success.

Here's Cole. He had diarrhea over the weekend. We think it's because the girl gave him some fries from McDonald's, so no more salted food for him. He's getting back to normal, now. Sorry you have to look at my dumb face, too.

It's always locals who are used to running on part of the course. But they become "bandits" when they use race resources, like water stops and porta-potties.
