My Little Dog is No Longer Obsessed with Eating Tan Bark

My Little Dog is No Longer Obsessed with Eating Tan Bark

These three photos may not look like much.  A dog walking in the back yard.  But, do you notice anything?  My dog is “unleashed”. No big deal, right?  Not for a regular dog.  But, for Misha…well, this is a sign that she is finally growing up and finally gotten over one of her worst behavior problems. You see, Misha was just a little over 1 year old when our lives got stressful.  She transitioned from puppy to one year old…

Giraffe Ears are Tasty on This Dog Toy

Giraffe Ears are Tasty on This Dog Toy

Share

Grandma bought Misha a new dog toy.  It’s a giraffe that is about the same size as her.  It was cute to watch her pick it up by a leg and drag it over to the living room. Once she got there, she threw it around a few times.  Then, she plopped herself down and went to work pulling the fur off the ear. She chewed it up pretty good for about 20 minutes. All that work seemed to tire…

Misha Runs Into A Cat

Misha Runs Into A Cat

Share

Literally. My dog ran right into a cat. Misha has a habit of not noticing creatures in our back yard. Especially, when she has to go.  She is oblivious to everything around her except her mission. And, this dog needed to do her business. We don’t own a cat. They shouldn’t be in our yard. There was no reason for her to expect a cat to be in her poop spot. I took this photo the day before the incident. …

My Dog Knows About The Towel Rule

My Dog Knows About The Towel Rule

Share

  Jack Russell Terriers learn rules quickly.  Misha knows that when she gets up on the living room furniture she must be on a lap or towel.  She has learned the rule so well sometimes she moves over quickly, sits down, and touches it with one paw.  Sort of like the freeze tag rule. Here she is sitting in the privileged spot with her buddy, Summit, off to the side.  This is how it’s supposed to work. My dog seems…

Do Dogs Sleepwalk?

Do Dogs Sleepwalk?

Share

Do you think that dogs sleepwalk? Seems to reason that if humans do it then animals do, too.  I caught my dog doing something that makes me think she was sleepwalking. Misha was exhausted several days with her dog cousin who was staying with us for a week. They don’t play together or interact beyond normal tail sniffing and having to face each other in passing. However, Summit is on seizure medication which works great at keeping her seizure free,…

Wordless Wednesday: My Dog Loves Her Toys Too Much

Wordless Wednesday: My Dog Loves Her Toys Too Much

Share

Misha has always been a dog who loves her toys.  She isn’t really a dog who plays fetch, though.  We have the three throw rule.  You throw the toy three times and the fourth time she walks away.  It’s your turn to fetch. As a pup she loved sleeping with her hedgehog.  Pretty much every dog loves their Kygen Hedgehog.  Does yours? I am not sure what this is.  What can I say?  She’s a Jack Russell.  I call this…
